It's A Girl!

It's official...we're having another girl. With this third girl, I have finally resigned myself that I am going to be the mother of girls so I'd better get used to big bows and doing hair and all those sorts of "girly" things that seem to confound me.

I am not a "girly" person by nature and so this whole "mother of girls" thing has been especially difficult. It does not help matters that my daughter with the longest hair has the finest hair that won't hold a curl on a bet, has about 40 cowlicks and her hair does not grow in straight. Ponytails and especially pigtails are an exercise in frustration.

I have determined that I will have to get a short haircut just so I won't have to get up at dawn in order to do all the hair that this current brood (and however many other girls) will require.

Brian does not approve of my having short hair. In that case, I have full confidence in his ability to learn how to put pigtails and bows in cow-licky hair.



Georgia, just let Brian know that his older and better looking brother is the bomb at doing little girls hair. As a matter of fact he does it better thatn his beautiful wife does, so there is hope for him. Let him know that it just takes time, a water bottle and the use of a comb to get things started. After he masters that he can graduate to doing hair in the dark with a brush and everything will come out great.

I am so excited for you guys! God must have a special purpose for giving you all these girls. We just found out that we are going to have a #6 -- we can't wait to find out what "it" is! The mental picture I have of Brian trying to put pigtails and bows in 3 sweet cuties is priceless:-)
