When I was pregnant with our first baby, I wanted a baby boy while my husband wanted a baby girl. I was a bit sad to find out that our first baby was going to be a baby girl. But then, as my pregnancy was progressing, I was becoming more and more excited to think how fun it would be to have a baby girl. She would look too cute in those nice baby dresses, and so on. Then I thought, it's ok, I can have a baby boy the next time. when my daughter came out, my husband was right all along, it was fun to have a baby girl and she was soooo loving and thoughtful as she was growing up. When I became pregnant again, I was so sure that I was having a boy, but, as fate would have it, I had another baby girl. I was still hoping for a boy. But now that my first daughter is 3 years old and my second daughter is 1 year old, I can see how much my daughters love having each other, so it turned out alright. All's well that ends well. Also, I remember a friend telling me, "A son is a son until he gets married. A daughter is a daughter forever." It means once a son has his own family, he tends to ignore his original one because he has to take care of the new one. A daughter however, even if she has her own family remains to take care of her parents. So, don't feel bad. There are good things that come with having a daughter.

I am with your gesture that having a baby girl is more on the thoughtfulness of her even if she has a family now, she finds some favorable times to see us. My son is also thoughtful yet he just visits us during the weekends. When my son was growing up I have plenty of headaches in upbringing him before yet now he is a very understanding son and a good father to his children.
