A "Tail" of Two Daughters
I'm going to admit a secret here...when I found out that I was having a boy I was foolishly disappointed. It's not so much that I didn't want a son, as I really just wanted another daughter. I had visions of matching sundresses and hair bows swirling around in my head and well...I know about girls. How to dress them, how to play with them, and most importantly how to potty train them.
However, about mid-way through the pregnancy a co-worker gave me a Celine Dion CD that had her version of John Lennon's "Beautiful Boy" on it and I began falling in love with Benjamin before even meeting him. And after that 3D sonogram...well, how could I not love my little man that looked almost exactly like me?
Over the past two-and-a-half years, I have fallen deeper and deeper in love with my little prince. He is the perfect companion for our little princess and purchasing coordinating outfits has been just as much fun, if not more so, than matchy-matchy anyways!
So imagine my sheer delight when little man insisted on "have ponytail too, momma" this afternoon! I was more than happy to oblige. Thank goodness his fire fighting daddy is on-duty and not around to see this! (He never reads our family blog!)
