Several college friends gave birth this week (actually, it's been a multi-week long bonanza of little girls, starting on July 1; first came Elise (Karen), then Elisa (Jenn), then Adilynn (Melissa) yesterday, and today, Jaime had Corinne. And then Sarah, non-college friend but great Las Vegas friend, had little Isabella tonight at 6:31pm. So much excitement! So many babies! So little sleep that will be had by all parties for the next eight weeks! (eek)
And then, just to add to the excitement, the Whippersnapper stopped by with a red velvet cake (um, delicious), to see the house, and to show off her baby bump! Turns out she is four and a half months along...that sneaky devil. She found out right as we were closing on the house and has kept quiet this long. She has a poker face, that Whippersnapper. But she is glowing in her teeny-tiny adorableness and had about a million questions for me. I pulled out my Belly Book and some pictures of Scotty in the womb (that I stuffed in an envelope and appropriately titled 'Scotty in utero, 2009'). We talked for a couple hours and have a lunch date planned...after all, these babies can be complicated, especially for first-time mothers. Trust me, I know.
Well, combine re-reading my Belly Book over a glass of wine tonight while looking at all of these new baby pictures on Facebook, and it amounted to a very weepy Kim. Poor Brian was left to deal with my "We are going to have another baby, right?" questions, even though we know it's not possible for at least another 18 months. (the dreaded fibroid - and surgery - still linger. More on that later). But either way, Scotty as an only child or Scotty as a big brother, big, HUGE congrats to everyone who has just recently had a baby...such an exciting time!!
