When you’re expecting, what you most want is a healthy baby. Truly. Second to that are gender hopes and guesses. I get SO excited when my clients wait to find out the gender. This couple was already blessed with a boy, and they were waiting until baby #2’s arrival to find out pink or blue… I was also giddy with curiosity — would I bring blue swaddles or tiny headbands?
Charlie and I waited to find out gender for our first and third babies. That anticipation can’t be beat (what a motivator to get through the last weeks of pregnancy!), and the final moment when baby arrives and you learn — son, or daughter? — is just incredible. The pieces of the puzzle just fall into place. You finally know. That said, I also wanted to find out baby #2 in advance — I totally get why you do so! We had a boy, and I had to know if we’d have a daughter. I simply couldn’t wait. And I full out sobbed (thanks, crazy pregnancy hormones!) happy tears when we found out “it” was a “she.”
The email from this mama arrived – girl!! A sweet surprise, and both she and her mama were healthy and well. As a mother, a woman, there is just something about having a daughter. The bond between this mama and her little girl was already so deep, they were so connected. Mama was glowing, baby girl so peaceful in her mother’s arms. Simply beautiful.
Enjoy this glimpse of their session –and congratulations, Z family!!
