Wise as Athena, Beautiful as Aphrodite

Oh, hey guys… my future baby just wanted to fly by and tell you about her unquenchable thirst for justice.

We found out last week that Button is a GIRL!!! And it JUST hit me that this means I get to have a little Wonder Woman.


Finding out that our baby is a little girl has changed my whole world. This feels so much more real… so warm and fuzzy.

I am so in love… with this little baby I’ve not even met yet… with this little person that makes me feel butterfly dance parties in my belly…with this wonderful little girl.

I know there is still a chance that button could be a boy… and I’m okay with that too… but for now I am just in love with the idea of having a little girl.

Even if that means tea parties and pink stuff… Bring it.

I want our love to be real and cherished every day (not that people who celebrate Valentine’s Day don’t have real relationships) I don’t see the point in spending ridiculous amounts of money on a vanity gift.

I mean… it seems silly to me that we are celebrating a day dedicated to a martyr by entertaining ourselves with meaningless objects. St. Valentine died because he wouldn’t stop telling people about Jesus. Instead of renouncing his faith the guy was beaten with clubs and beheaded…

I guess that does sound pretty romantic. Continue reading
