|Gaby's ultrasound from a few days ago. She's at 20 weeks.|
I'm so excited!! You have no idea how much I'm looking forward to smushing and cuddling and hugging that baby. I also get to buy it a lot of cute outfits, and help dress her to look adorable. And the shoes!! Baby shoes are freaking cute!! I may or may not already have a (secret) Pinterest board for stuff I plan to get.
I can't help it, there are just so many adorable things out there for little girls!! Like these:
I'm also really looking forward to, hopefully, teaching her how to love reading. I love it, and I did everything I could (and succeeded!!) to make sure Gaby also loved it. Now I get to make sure her daughter is the same. Somehow, I will also make her love camping and going places. Not right away, of course, but in time. Maybe it'll finally be time for that Disney family vacation we never took, right??
I also get to plan the baby shower. Nothing crazy, but it'll be nice. We're thinking a jungle theme, and my mom's friend Elsa is going to be making lots and lots of Mexican food, along with the snacks and appetizers I make. And Gaby's asked me to make a cake, which hopefully will turn out nicely.
And, on the last bit of exciting news, guess who's the godmother?? That's right, ME!! I'm happy Gaby's asked me to be, as I plan to be there for her daughter through anything and everything, good times and bad. I'll make sure that no matter what kind of life she has, or what kind of world we live in, there will always be a safe have for her to go to and someone to talk to. Because that's my job as aunt, as godmother, and really, as someone who loves her already.
Anyways, this is super exciting!! If you see or talk to Gaby, feel free to congratulate her. I know she'd love to hear it.
