From the time I was a little girl playing house, I dreamt of one day having a daughter of my own. The funny thing is that when I was pregnant, I was completely certain I was having a boy and got super excited about that. When I finally found out we were having a girl, I honestly had a moment where I felt a little disappointed, but then my lifelong dream of having a daughter came rushing back, and I’ve been thrilled with my little lady ever since. Here are just a few reasons why I love having a little girl…
8 Reasons I Love Having a Girl
Having a little girl is pretty great.
Mother Daughter Dates
Sure mama/son dates are equally sweet, but I dreamed of having mother/daughter dates with my own little one from the time I was playing house as a child. So much fun!
Dresses and Lace and Bows
When you have a girl, you can just combine all of these things into one outfit if you like!
Swimsuits are my weakness…my shopping kryptonite and I simply can’t resist them. Fern may or may not have five of them, because dressing a little girl up in a cute swimsuit is just so much fun.
I mean…seriously? It doesn’t get any better than pig tails.
If I had a son, I would probably end up matching with him too, but matching with my daughter is an irresistible guilty pleasure of mine. Sometimes it’s on accident, but sometimes it’s totally on purpose.
I’ve known plenty of boys who’ve sported nail polish in their day, so this one isn’t necessarily specific to girls, but I sure do love painting her little toes.
Daddy Daughter bonding
Seeing the sweetness between my husband and our daughter has been one of my most favorite things about having a little girl. Having a daughter has changed him in so many adorable ways.
Girls and their accessories…at least this girl. She loves them and I love seeing her enjoy them.
