My sister gave birth to twins at the end of March and they are so freaking adorable that I forget to eat sometimes when I'm with them. If you know anything about me and how much I enjoy food, this is telling.
Last weekend, Papa, my beloved grandfather, got to meet his great-grandchildren for the first time, and it was even more adorable than the twins by themselves:
Okay, yes, I'm pretty cute with them too:
The last year has been pretty baby-full for me, as a very good friend gave birth to a baby girl last July, my best friend gave birth to a baby girl in November, and my sister gave birth to twins in March. I've loved being around to help with all these babies, and in part, yes, it's got my uterus jumping a bit. That said, it's also helped me to appreciate the blessings that come with being unmarried and unmommied. I still want to get married and I want to get pregnant and become a mom, but until the time comes, I've decided to more purposefully appreciate the way my life is right now.
This is probably good news for Pakk, since the last thing any man wants is a girlfriend who's always tapping her foot and making pointed remarks about her biological clock. Honestly, I like our relationship right now, and while I'm sure I will like it if/when it takes a step forward, I can wait for the proper time.
I'll just borrow everyone else's babies until then.
