Preparing to be wrapped  

Posted by Stephen Lowe

Baby Brennan

I'm still blown away. We went to the doctor for the ultrasound today and the tech told us it was a girl, we were in shock. I am beyond excited but still in shock, I don't think this has really been processed fully by my brain yet. We had been praying for a girl but expecting a boy. My cousin Julie just gave birth to the first girl on my side of the family in 30 years. the male determines the gender, right? So my cousins husband made their girl. Out of the 12 cousins I have on my side of the family there are only two girls and only one of them was produced by a male blood relative. That's called overcoming the odds!

When we were pregnant with Ethan and found out we were having a boy that was a no brainer for me. I can handle a boy, I grew up with nothing but boys, all my friends and relatives had boys, I know how to be a crazy boy. A girl, well I'm still processing that.

This is going to be such a cool experience for me just learning how to deal with a girl. Luckily, I am blessed with a wife that can handle the girl stuff and walk me through it so I don't completely blow it. I've got some friends now with girls and they all tell me I'm doomed, there is nothing like the bond between a girl and her daddy, nothing like being wrapped around her finger. I only pray I can do a good enough job for her to want me wrapped around her finger forever. I can't wait for little Brennan to get here.


You are a great father already and I know Brennan will love her Daddy! Remember how scared we were to have Ethan, I'm sure we'll feel that fear again but we'll get through it together like we always do. Love you!

Hi Stephen.

I check out your blog from time to time and saw where Stephanie was pregnant and you all just found out that you are having a girl. Congratulations. Brad and I just had our 2nd girl in January. Layna was the 1st girl on Brad's side of the family in 50+ years so imagine the suprise when our 2nd was a girl also. I wish you the best of luck and hope all is well.
