One girl. One boy.

7 May

When I was pregnant with Ambrose and out and about with Hazel in tow, strangers would comment “Oh, I bet you hope you’re having a boy.”  At the time I was secretly longing for another girl—a little girl for Hazel to play with.  I grew up with a younger sister and I never wished she was a boy—I loved having my sister as my best friend.  Anyway, it seemed to me that people wanted one of each gender.  I still get comments along the lines “One girl.  One boy.  Your family’s complete.”  That’s for the Lord to decide.

Ambrose is not a little girl.  He is very much a little boy.  And I love it.

The other day I was out talking with a friend and the kiddos were running around the backyard.  Hazel was picking up a large bouquet of dandelions.  “Momma, aren’t these yellow flowers pretty?”  And Ambrose picked up a rock and started smacking it with a stick.  I loved how they were both outdoors and each found something to do that spoke to his/her interests.  I love seeing how God designed us differently.  Male and female.  The genders are different, and it’s so beautiful.
