And He said unto me, "My grace is sufficient for thee: for my strength is made perfect in weakness. Most gladly therefore will I rather glory in my infirmities, that the power of Christ may rest upon me."
2 Corinthians 12:9

It's a...

Today was our follow-up visit with the high-risk OB.  I didn't want to find out boy/girl sitting in the room with doc.  So, B had a great idea:

He got a cute little bag with babies on the front, blue & pink tissue paper, & swatches of blue & pink fabric.  We gave the bag to the nurse and told the doc we didn't want to know while at the appt.  So, they were just supposed to put the right color fabric in the bag and wrap it for us!!

So, doc did the Ultrasound and our baby is very healthy.  Weighs about 5 oz.  Baby's brain, palate, heart, spine, every other organ, etc., all look great!!!  Praise the LORD!!!!

Isn't our baby precious?



When we got in the car, we couldn't decide what to do...do we just sit in the truck & open the bag?  Do we go somewhere special?  Then, my unbelievable hubby & our little baby's amazing daddy had an idea.  He started searching in his phone and then started driving.

As a kiddo, Mom always had me dressed in Chocolate Soup outfits.  It's a kiddo clothing store that is just adorable!  Anyway, B pulled up in front of Chocolate Soup (I didn't know there were even any of these stores still open) and said we could get our baby it's first outfit!!  Isn't he already a wonderful & super creative Daddy?!

B opened the package.  They had a card wrapped up.  So, he gave me the card.  I opened it, and this is what we saw:


The tears immediately started flowing...

We did get her a cute little outfit.  However, she already has her Daddy wrapped around her little fingers.  He saw this pink puppy and carried it through the store snuggling with it.  He put it back on the shelf once.  It drew him back in, though.  Daddy couldn't help himself.  He had to spoil his little girl!!!  ; )

This is the picture that we sent to our parents to let them know about their granddaughter!!!


Our little girl's new puppy from her Daddy!

He told me that when we got home, I needed to hear the song that he had for his daughter.

Here is the video!  Make sure you pause the music at the top, on the right hand side of the blog.

The Lyrics to Daddy's Little Girl:
I recall the night that you came into this world.
I couldn't believe the doctor when he said: 'It's a little girl.'
I said: 'Now Doc, you must be wrong. You see I want a boy.'
Then he laid you in my arms and my heart sang with joy.

(Daddy's Girl, Daddy's Girl,
(I'm the centre of Daddy's world.
(I know I'm Daddy's number one,
(For he loves me like I was his son.
(Daddy's Girl.)

I recall the day I took you to a baseball game.
You brought along your baby doll and half its' baby things.
We sat there a-playin' house, while the Dodgers played the Braves.
And ev'ryone in the bleachers looked at us as if to say.

(Daddy's Girl, Daddy's Girl,
(I'm the centre of Daddy's world.
(I know I'm Daddy's number one,
(For he loves me like I was his son.
(Daddy's Girl.)

I recall the day I took you on a fishin' trip,
You said: 'Daddy won't that hook hurt the fishes' lip?'
And you said if they don't get air, those things in the can will die.
So we turned the worms all loose and chased some butterflies.

(Daddy's Girl, Daddy's Girl,
(I'm the centre of Daddy's world.
(I know I'm Daddy's number one,
(For he loves me like I was his son.
(Daddy's Girl.)

I recall the day that your young man come to call.
Seems like only yesterday, you swam and played football.
But I know the time has come, that I must set you free.
But no matter where you are, you know what you are to me.

(Daddy's Girl, Daddy's Girl,
(I'm the centre of Daddy's world.
(I know I'm Daddy's number one,
(For he loves me like I was his son.
(Daddy's Girl.)


(Daddy's Girl, Daddy's Girl,
(I'm the centre of Daddy's world.
(I know I'm Daddy's number one,
(For he loves me like I was his son.
(Daddy's Girl.) 

The other song that he said he likes for his little girl is this one!!  It doesn't start until about the 22 second mark....
The lyrics to It'll Come Back:

On our little girls third birthday,
She got a sandbox, In the backyard to play.
Sand was everywhere as she play and she laughed.
I busted her, For it killed all the grass.

It'll come back, It'll come back
Daddy don't be mad, God and the rain will bring it back.

When our little girl, Just turned ten,
She got a bike to ride with all her friends.
She skinned both her knees, as she played and she laughed.
I busted her. For it killed all the grass.

It'll come back, It'll come back
Daddy don't be mad, God and the rain will bring it back.

When our little girl, Turned seventeen.
We built her a pool, In the backyard that spring.
All her friends came and they swam and they splashed.
I busted her, For it killed all the grass.

It'll come back, It'll come back
Daddy don't be mad, God and the rain will bring it back.

My wife and I sit on the porch alone.
As I look out across at my beautiful lawn
The house is quiet, There's no children at play.
And I say to my wife.
"Honey, If you'll listen real close, You can still hear her say..."

It'll come back (It'll come back). It'll come back (It'll come back)
Daddy don't be mad, God and the rain will bring it back.
It'll come back (It'll come back). It'll come back (It'll come back)
