Fatherhood and moving forward

I have been a father/parent for over 2 years now and I like to think I know what I am dong. But I have been a father to a boy.  I think it may be easier that being a father to a girl, but who really knows?!  We are now having a baby girl sometime next week and I am starting to realize that raising a girl will probably be way different from a boy.  Right now with baby T it's all about trucks, Lego's, cars, basketballs and footballs etc..... Starting next week we will be expanding our horizons and could all be pink, girly, princessy, hair, make up, etc... stuff.   I am ready for it, we are ready for it!  Bring it on!

Until then, T and I will continue to play and we will learn to include his baby sister.  Making the jump from a 3 person family to a 4 person family feels like a big deal.  But most people that have multiple kids say that 2 to 3 kids is a lot harder.  So this should be cake, right?! 

T is obsessed with all of these animals, maybe he will be a zoo keeper.  He lined them all up last weekend before we went to his cousin's baptism and asked me to take a picture.  I love it!  He is obsessed with them.  He is very nice to them all though.  He hugs them, kisses them and I hope he will be that nice to his new sister!  So here's to fatherhood and to moving on, moving forward and hoping for the best as we become a 4 person family!

Girls are the best...that said I will be clueless when it becomes my time to raise a boy! T is so cute. Clara has a special attachment to all her animals or "friends" as she says as well. He will be a great big brother.
