We had a wonderful day yesterday, eating, talking, laughing, playing, and eating some more.  There were about 25 friends and family here… and about 10 of them were kids! 

So when I say "Gifts Galore" (most of you know I refer to the kids as Gift#1 and Gift#2)I am talking about the magical time I had seeing all beautiful children running and playing and having fun.  I was truly in my element with all those kids around. 

Thanks to all who attended and made our day such a blessing.

Also, this week we found out we are having a BABY GIRL.  Not what I was expecting.

It has been a bit of a shock to me, but I have received some wonderful and insightful advice, and am now looking forward to sharing our lives with a new little angel.

And of course, I know that God knows full well what I can and can't handle, and if I lean on Him, He will give me the strengths I need when I need them!  Being able to give anxiety and uncertainty over to Him is such a relief!  Thank you Jesus!

I pray you are all happy and healthy.

Blessings-

Amanda

  1. I’m glad Parker had a wonderful day!
    Congratulations on having a baby girl!! I know it is going to be vastly different, but different in very good way I can assure you. There are things about being the mother of a daughter that is so different from being the mother of a son, but there are so many pros as well. There is absolutely nothing like that mother/daughter relationship.

  2. Looks like a fun party!! I’m sorry we missed it. I’m sure Parker had a super time! I’ll send you a separate email about your baby news! I can’t begin to tell you how elated I am that it’s a girl. God works in wonderful ways!!
    Talk to you soon. Molly

  3. Congrats on the baby girl. You know, I’ve had both and although it IS different, I don’t think it is anything to worry about. You learn as you go and most differences are subtle anyway– at least in my opinion. 🙂

  4. That cake looked beautiful! Glad you had such a fun day. *grin*
    And you’re having a baby girl??? You are a blessed woman, Amanda. She will be precious and you’ll love being Mama to a girl. I just know it.
