Baby Boom

Last winter there was a baby boom at my office. In a four month stretch, five girls I worked with at the time were pregnant. Baby arrivals in October, December, January and May. At the time, it seemed like I was on the ONLY one able to have a baby ... not having a baby at work. I remember sitting in one of our weekly meetings and looking down the table. Baby bump, baby bump, baby bump, (ME - no baby bump), baby bump. Yep, that's a lot of babies!

The baby boom came and went ... and now those babies are as old as a year now. How fast time flies! And now, without so much as a warning, it seems like EVERYONE I know is pregnant again. I won't call out all these girlies on my blog ... but let's just say I can count on my hands AND toes how many ladies I know expecting a baby these days.

And congrats to you all, I couldn't be happier ... and more envious. I can't wait to be a mom someday and seeing all my gals expecting little ones stirs up all those feelings for me. I know my time will come...and I should enjoy being a newlywed. And I am. My time will come. My time will come. My time will come ...

In 6-9 months from now, all these new little ones will be entering the world. What could be better than that?

    So what does that leave???

    The other day our neighbors had their baby and so I got to go out and shop for an adorable outfit, it was so much fun! But then we dropped it by their place and have never EVER seen them so wiped out. They had bags under their eyes and everything. So for a small second I was realived that I can sleep through the night and spend my weekends sleeping in!

    You are right, our time will come!!
