hairbows or bowties

Tomorrow, we find out if this little human growing inside of me will wear hairbows or bowties. We are so excited.

A lot of people have asked us what we want-- a boy or a girl. But, truthfully, we don't have a preference one way or the other. And I don't have any strong hunches on what it might be, either. I just want him/her to be healthy...and that's the truth.

I don't think we'll do any sort of gender reveal this go-around, but I might can convince MCA to stop for a balloon with a little pink or a little blue on it, and we'll tweet a picture of that. Maybe. :)

But, tonight, on my last night not knowing whether this little human being with a soul that will never die that lives within me is a little miss or a little mister, I'm going to rejoice in the fact that the good Lord has seen it fit for Mat and I to do this parenthood thing once again. And that humbles me and makes me so very thankful.

And while I'm thankful for the little one of which I know not the gender, I'm so thankful for the sweet one I have that I do know the gender of-- my sweet Wattsie. Tonight, I rejoice in the fact that she exists, and that she is our little girl, and the fact that the Lord saw fit for us to be HER parents almost two years ago. He is good. He is so good.

There is much mystery and much anticipation, but tonight, I focus on what I do know: I am mother to two sweet blessings...to two absolute joys and gifts from the Lord, and also a wife to their daddy, of whom I am so undeserving and who I love so fiercely with every ounce of my being.

And for both those things and all three of those people, I'm eternally grateful.

Praise you, Jesus.
