Oh my beautiful baby girl.
When I found out I was pregnant with you, I was excited beyond measure.
I imagined who you would be. What you would look like. Who you would grow into. #InLoveAndDreamingOfYouFromTheStart
I didn’t actually know if you were a boy or girl, but I assumed you would be a boy. I don’t know why. So the day we found out that you WERE a girl brought with it a mixture of both excitement and apprehension.
Excitement for the future that I could suddenly see mapped out before me. Your life, your loves, your marriage, your babies. Your future, my sweet darling.
And apprehension, nervousness really, about the future as well. What will you be subjected to? What will people expect from you, as a “girl”. .
Although I worry about both of my children, I know that I will worry about you more purely because you ARE a girl. I worry that people will think they can take advantage of you because you are a girl. I worry that people will think they are stronger than you because you are a girl. I worry that the world will not be as safe for you because you are a girl. .
And I bloody well hate that. We have come so far that I shouldn’t be worried about this at all. .
I hope that I can teach you to be strong my love. I hope that I can teach you that you are worth more than your body or your face. I hope that I can teach you how important, having confidence and knowing and loving yourself is. I hope I can teach you that you are not lesser because you are a girl but that you are a force to be reckoned with. .
Because you are, my sweet wildfire girl. You are. And you have been put here to shine. #ShineOnSweetGirl
