A Dream Come True

I have probably said this a million times, but I have always wanted a daughter. Of course I would always be happy with a boy but I just felt like in my heart I would have girls...might be because I grew up with all brothers and just can't stand the thought of being in a house full of boys...KIDDING! (kind of) but I can't quite explain how I feel except that having a daughter(s) just makes sense to me. 
Well I couldn't explain it, until now. 

The moment I found out I was pregnant I was so ecstatic and just wanted a healthy baby...deep down I really wanted a girl. But it was more than that, I just knew I was having a girl. 
Before we found out what we were having, anytime someone would say "I think it's a boy" I would just smile on the outside but on the inside I just wanted to say "you're wrong" but I couldn't because I didn't want to be wrong! All I could think of was girl names, and I was always drawn to the girl's clothes.

When the day finally came that we would find out for sure if we were having a boy or a girl, I was back to my I don't really care, I just want my baby healthy. As soon as my husband and I opened the envelope and I saw the word "Girl" I just squealed and cried. My dreams were finally coming true. I couldn't wait to meet MY daughter. 
The day we met our baby girl, face to face, was one of the best days of my life. And also I finally figured out why I wanted a girl so badly. 

You see it's so much more than all the pink, bows, and glitter. It's getting to relive my childhood all over again, through her. I get to show her how to play dress up, have tea parties, play momma and take care of her babies, teach her ballet, let her help me cook and bake, and go on adventures. All the things I did when I was little with my mom, I want to do with her. 
I may have a daughter, but I also have a best friend for life. And I want her to know that I'll always be there for her. 
Even when she thinks she is "too grown up" to need her mom.
