Though we have known since I was about 4 months along, we are just now sharing this news. We were not sure if we wanted everyone to wait till delivery or not. And since our family members and a few friends knew, I didn’t want to keep my customers, readers and fans guessing any longer.
So here it is, Zurhi better start getting used to sharing because it’s another daddy’s little girl! Gotta love the men in my household. Greg sure does know how to spoil his girls. And I’m excited that there is one more for him to do so with. I enjoy watching him with Zurhi. She has him wrapped around her pinky. From changing the poopie diapers, to giving her a bath at night, cooking dinner and cuddling one another to sleep. With another girl in the mix, I hope we don’t have to fight for Greg’s attention. Because I’m not giving up my spot (smile).
Sidney wanted a boy too, but after I rationalized with him saying, “Dude, think of it this way, you’ve got these kids by 10, 11 years. You’ll be off to college in 7yrs. Wouldn’t you want Zurhi to have another girl that can be her best-friend, share things with, do things together, talk about clothes and girly things?” It was a surreal moment. He said, “Yes, wow, I never thought of it that way. I’m so glad it’s a girl.” Phew! That settles that.
With the feel of things, I think this one is going to be a tomboy too. Just like big sis. I prayed for a girl, so I’m glad I got my wish. Sidney and his best friend, Harry, have already started plotting how they are going to be fighting boys off their little sisters. How protective they will be. Sidney is so protective, he doesn’t like Zurhi showing skin. She had on a halter top the other day and Sidney was like, “Mom, you are going to let her go out to school like that? Sorry but she can’t.” On another occasion a little boy..about Zurhi’s age walked up to her, hugged and kissed her. Sidney flipped and picked her up immediately. “She is too young to be kissing a boy,” he said. “That’s disgusting.”
It’s pretty hilarious to watch. At the same token, he is so attentive to her needs. He watches her moves. Makes sure she doesn’t put the wrong thing in her mouth, or hurt herself. He feeds her, puts her to sleep, wipes her nose, showers her with kisses. He is a third parent. I’m such a proud wife and mother.
Man, this next little one is going to get so spoiled by the men in the house. I better stop writing. I may start to cry.
