Doesn’t it feel like every person you know is either pregnant or just had a baby? Seems like it here. Every night, in our family prayers, we ask for blessings for each of our pregnant friends and family members that the pregnancies will go well and both the mother and baby are healthy. For a while, we were naming the people we were praying for, but then the list got too long. We can’t remember everyone!! We have Emily, Rachel, Tanya, Jean, Laural, April, Anna (although she just had hers), Kris, Tenille… I think that’s it. Seriously! I can’t remember! It’s just too many!
In our immediate families, we have two babies (girls) coming on Ches’ side and one (boy) on my side. Which means I get to shop for some really cute pink stuff (if you don’t like it, tough. I have all boys and I want to shop for pink, frilly things!! I don’t get to do that!!!), and possibly hand down a couple of really cute boy things.
Which reminds me… Alyson, do you want a winter coat and snow boots for Tweedle 3? For next year, that is? My kids have now outgrown that stuff, and we obviously don’t use it a whole lot here in Arizona! 🙂
I love new babies. They are just so precious with their little, wrinkled hands and that old man look to their face. They are so soft, so quiet, and so cuddly. I love that they sleep so much because it’s a great excuse to just sit and hold them.
Uhhh, I’m not saying I want another baby right now. Nope. No baby hunger here. I’m not even kidding. I don’t think I could survive having another child right now. Give me at least another year before I think about it.
Until I have another one… I will enjoy everyone else’s babies. Mostly because it’s not my baby, so I don’t have to do the nighttime feedins and the diaper changes and deal with the pukies and all that. I just get the cuddly stuff. Perfection!
