You Capture

He was so sure that she would be a he. So sure in fact, that when the ultrasound technician said "That's a girl", he said "Are you sure?".
But then he saw the dresses, and the bloomers, and the shoes, and the socks, and the bibs, and the blankets, and even though he swore we wouldn't buy all pink, this is what he picked out.
My "moment" for the week? Watching my husband be excited about fathering a girl.
(And the next day, he went out ON HIS OWN, and bought her twice as much. Pink. All over our house.)
You Capture - A Moment.

adorable! my husband was so freaked out to have a little girl - we'd had two boys prior. it was more about what life would be like once she's a teenager, probably, but still. now he can't get enough of her. he sings little songs about her all day. i LOVE it!

Possibly one of the best expectant father photos I've ever seen. I adore how intent he looks.

Watching my husband become a father made my love run deeper than ever for him. So sure yours will, too. What a wonderful daddy. Hug him extra tight tonight.

Hi Natalie, I have been keeping an eye on your blog, making sure that you are doing well and praying for you and your little "bebe". Just wanted you to know that I am constantly praying for all of you!

It must be a man thing, Dave STILL swears there is no way he could raise a little girl, but I think the truth is that they KNOW they will become softies and have that little girl wrapped around their fingers! I am sooo happy for you guys!
