Girlie Gigglies

I love having two daughters. When we found out L. was a girl, I actually received condolences and was repeatedly asked if we were going to try again for a boy. I always laughed it off, because from the second I had that second pink line, I was desperate for another girl. We toyed briefly with the idea of not finding out the gender ahead of time for our second child. However, I wanted to have time to be sad about having a boy before the baby was born. When the ultrasound tech announced we were having another girl, I cried with relief.

We had one of those precious, precious girlie giggly moments yesterday. L. and S. had been sick with a nasty little tummy bug Thursday through Saturday. By Sunday, they were pretty much back to their old selves. L. was still a trifle clingy, so I started tickling her on the floor. She giggled and giggled, and then S. joined in on the fun. I now have some fantastic pictures of both girls lying side by side on a blanket on the floor giggling their little hearts out. I have got to make some time this evening and upload them. My girls are so very different from one another, but they both have the exact same giggle (reminds me of their father).

How sweet!

I must admit that I am growing accustomed to the idea of having a baby girl. Everyone tells me it will be quite different from my little boy.
