While I certainly don't like admitting it to people, I have had babies on my mind a lot lately. It certainly doesn't help that everyone around me is having one...but simply being married makes me realize how close I am to the possibility of starting a family of my own. It's exciting....and frightening!

I'm quite content holding and loving on my friends' babies for now (as I get to give them back and go home to get a full night's sleep!), but looking in their babies' faces makes me wonder what mine will look like. Will Chris and I sit there and argue about who he/she looks more like, or will it be a mini-me of just one of us? I morphed our faces together, and apparently our child will look like this beautiful boy to the right! He's cuter than I thought he would be!

I wonder if we'll be blessed with a boy or girl first. While I, for no explicable reason, want a girl (then my parents will have both grandsons and a granddaughter), I think it would be neat to have a boy (as Chris's parents only have granddaughters!). Either way, we'll be breaking the mold on either side!

I have spent hours just imagining a creative and fun way to tell Chris when I finally get pregnant. I want it to be perfect! He's so excited and ready to have a kid, I want it to be as special as possible. Keep in mind....this is just me rambling, and not me telling you that we're planning on getting pregnant anytime soon. We're still trying to be smart about things. :)

I'm most happy that we live in the same town as my parents, and that they will most likely be there for the birth of the child. And Chris's parents are in great health and have the ability to come down as well, if they like. I would love to have them both there, as I know how wonderful they all already are as grandparents! I said...I've had babies on the mind lately. Don't tell anyone. :)

  1. HAHAHAHAHAHA! You're gonna get pregnant. And the boy is cute. :) I was going to say he looks like Chris..and then I thought..well no..he's got Amber's features. But YOU and Chris look I'm sure lots of people will argue over who your child looks like. The boys need a boy cousin. Just sayin'.

  2. The boys HAVE cousins. Just sayin'.
