We have 2 girls - 4.5 & 6mths. DD2 gets all of her sisters old clothes & toys. They adore each other - DD2 lights up when she sees DD1.
I'm also one of 4 girls & we are all great friends.
There wasn't anything we couldn't do with Dad just because we were girls.
There was a great article in the Huff Post earlier this year by a bloke entitled "The great list of things I can't do because I only have daughters".

I have two daughters and it is lovely. They have a really special relationship already.
However, I feel the key issue for you more your husband wanting to try for a boy. I think the first thing is you should make sure you both actually want another child (rather than him just wanting a son). Because there is the possibility you could have anther girl. I would want to make sure he would be ok if that happened before I considered having another baby.

I've got a sweet 15 month old daughter and an insane, intense, tantrumming, argumentative and clever 3 and a half year old daughter. 26 month gap. They are a handful and I can't wait till they grow to be friends as opposed to competitors for our attention! For some reason I see a lot of 'how great it is to have boys' memes on Facebook and even in comments from friends. Is there some kind of post-feminist backlash against girl children? Or am I overthinking things?!!!
I absolutely love having my two girls. I am looking forward to raising my two girls into strong women.

I'm the eldest of two girls and I love having a sister. There's a special bond with two girls which extends into adulthood, and if I could've picked a combination of genders for my own kids I would've loved two girls. I adore my DS and three step sons, boys are wonderful too, but having grown up with a sister I would've been quite happy with only girls.

I have one girl (and two boys) and I am done having children. The only time I get wistful about having more is when I feel bad for my daughter never growing up with a sister. I have a sister and we get closer and closer the older I get. I also have two brothers, but my relationship with my sister is different.

What if you go for a third and have another girl? 😋

I'm one of three girls, and we have always been close. Now I have two girls and we are looking at one more, I am kinda hoping for a boy but would be happy with either. We always intended to go to three though.
Three girls can mean one feels left out at times, but it also means you have multiple places to turn and a great support network. I often joke I don't know how my parents survived the teenage years. My two adore each other and I do look at that dynamic and wonder what a third will do to it.
