Update: Our little Babushka … ♀

Surprise… 

I knew it. I knew it. I knew it!!!

❀ GIRL ❀ 

I had felt from the beginning this baby was a girl so as I mentioned in the last post when at 18 weeks BLUE balloons popped out I WAS SHOCKED!!!

The Ultrasound Technician said she was 95% positive it was a Boy and even double checked it. So my joke to my best friend Michelle was that “there was still a 5% chance it was a girl!  I was even so confident to have told Jessie our Photographer/Friend/Balloon box maker (who has 3 precious little girls) that I was going to have to need some of her girls hand me downs before the reveal!

At 20 weeks our Dr. and his ultrasound technician thought it was a girl. So these past couple weeks we have been in limbo waiting for a confirmation.

Today at 23 weeks it was confirmed by Jessie’s sister Jenna Kinsley that it’s

Momma’s intuition was right! We are thrilled to welcome a girl and to know she is healthy is such a blessing. I have to admit that if if was a boy it may have been at least a little bit slightly harder having a boy right after Jaxton. That is my own personal feelings and I’m sure it would not have taken me long to over come that emotional hurdle. The Lord is Good and he provides.

Originally I had never pictured myself with a girl in our family other than me. I wanted to be the only girl. A house full of boys and me. Sounds selfish and ridiculous I know. I just feel like i’m more of a guys kinda girl.

I have struggled with thinking this girl is going to turn out like me (defiant, sassy, strong willed and moody). Which scares me to death!!! Although Jake  already has those traits I feel like I can handle them with a boy. In addition, on a personal note, because my mom and I don’t have a great relationship by any stretch of the imagination it scares me that me and my daughter will have an equally strained dynamic. But the more I think about how she will be born into a Happy Marriage with Christian morals, have an older brother and an angel brother as her guardian our circumstance is already worlds different.

Father God, Thank you for our precious daughter who is being knit in my womb with your wonderful creative hand. Thank you for masterfully putting each part together and skillfully making each organ work properly. Thank you for LOVING her before we even know her.

I pray for the love that we are so excited to give her to fully be received and reciprocated. We pray that we are a blessing in each others lives.  I want to pray for Josh and I to raise her by our example of Integrity, Loyalty, Faith, Trust and Unconditional Love. I want to pray for her body to be pure and holy until the day of marriage. May her husband also keep his mind and body pure. I pray he sees her as the Proverbs 31 woman and cherishes her far above rubies and that her children respect and honor her. May she effect this world greatly for your kingdom and know a love for you greater than any other. I pray for her protection and that she listens to wisdom. May you bless her and have favor on her life even now.

Help my children to live lives that are always overflowing with thankfulness, always giving thanks to God the Father for everything, in the name of our Lord Jesus Christ. (Col. 2:7, Ephesians 5:20) (31 days of prayer for your children)

Yawning.

    Lisa I am so happy for you. Every word you type into your blog goes right to my heart. Last night I went back through many of your posts and relived moments of Jaxton and cried and prayed for you and your family. You will have an amazing relationship with your daughter 1. because you are a wonderful GODly mama. 2 Jaxton hand picked her and I feel that she will have all of his traits that GOD had given him. Little girls heal by nature and I have a feeling you are going to have a lot of amazing experiences with her since she know Jax best. (referring to little Colton Burpo’s story) Congrats to your little girl. Now let’s hear some baby girl names!!!!!

    I must say, the Husmann’s know how to keep things exciting! Congratulations to all of you. I just can’t imagine how much fun you are all having now. Enjoy how this little girl will continue to bless the life that you and Josh are building together. I am just a little sorry that Grandma is retired so I can watch her excitement grow day-by-day. But I will “stay tuned” to see it all unfold.

    Congratulations to you guys!!! So exciting. Lisa, I really know what you mean about being scared of repeating the past. That’s why for 10 years we didn’t have kids. I thought I could only be the kind of parent I experienced and I did NOT want to repeat that – I’d rather not have kids at all. But I realize now after 3.5 years that through God’s grace (and lots of book reading) it is possible to create a completely different family with different patterns and different relationships! 🙂 You are a wonderful woman and your kids are blessed. Love ya!
