"Do you know what you’re having? A boy or a girl?"  She beamed up at me, a 4 foot curly-haired little beauty.  10 years old, unafraid, filled with pure wonder as she gazed at my growing belly.  Lots of people ask me the same thing.  So many kind encouragements, lots of “So, are you excited!?”  So much kindness, but somehow this little girl’s wonder filled my heart 100x more than a thousand kind words from sweet women three times her age.  Whoever humbles himself like this child is the greatest in the kingdom of heaven.  Matt 18  The joy of a child.  Pure.  Unaffected.  Real.  That made me excited.  Grateful and hopeful.  An unexpected gift yesterday in the church bathroom.  All I could think was, “I hope I have a little girl as beautiful, unabashedly joyful and happily curious about life as you.”  Yes, friends, we’re having a very long (85th percentile in length!), very healthy (praise God!)………. GIRL!!!
