April Top Ten Winners Blog Hop - Baby Theme

Hello Friends!!, today I am participating on the Top Ten Winners Blog Hop, thanks to your support and voting for my card!! Thanks a lot!! the theme on this hop is Baby! and it is so special for me as I am sharing with you a special announcement.. 

When I learned that April's International Highlights theme was Babies, I got so excited and decided that if I won this month, this is where I would announce that we are expecting a little girl in September!! We are so blessed to know that our family is growing and that I will have the joy to experience both a little boy (My Oliver) and now a little girl!! I am soooo thrilled with the news..

This is so especial for me as I had always wanted a little girl, we got pregnant back in 2015 of a little girl, but sadly she was sick and we lost her at week 15, I have never felt so much pain in my heart.. Any way a year later we got blessed with the arrival of our little Oliver and he is truly the joy of our lives!! he is such a happy boy, so fun and full of joy, I couldn't have asked for a better baby!! I am sure all moms think that way..  I love so much having a little boy, that this time around, I honestly didn't have a preference on a boy or girl, I even thought that another boy would have been perfect for Oliver to have a forever playmate and friend.. But when I got the news it was a Girl, I was so excited, as we will have the experience of being parents of a boy and a girl!! I am sure Oliver will still have a little friend on her and they will play together all the time.. so we are all super happy with the news!
