The crazy thing is that I almost skipped right over it because I have never thought of Emmalee as an only child, but I guess she is.
Brant and I have always wanted to have two children. I have always wanted more, but Brant said he would be very happy with two. I also never thought it would take us 2 years to get pregnant with Emmalee, so we got a later start than we anticipated...so maybe two is all we will have...or maybe just one.
It wasn't an easy thought just because I've always had my life planned out and, in those plans, I am always having two babies...a girl and a boy. But you know saying:
"If you want to see God laugh, tell Him your plans."
But after a few days of this weighing heavily on my mind, I cam to realize that I am happy. My dreams of being a mom came true the moment they placed that little baby on my chest a mere 6 months ago.
I have an amazing husband, and a gorgeous daughter, a fabulous family, a roof over my head and a job I like...what more do I need? So I am content to simply trust in His plan instead of mine.
I know one thing is for certain, if this little girl is an only child, its ok because this smile has absolutely stolen my heart!
