I know it’s been a while since I posted, but I’ve been very, very BUSY. (I am aware that I have been saying that at the beginning of every post lately. I’ll take that as a sign that I need to start posting more.)
March was a big month for BABIES being born!!
Friends having babies is the best EVER. Because I get to love on them and snuggle them and kiss their sweet smelling skin. And then I get to go home and eat ice cream for dinner and sleep in on Saturday because I don’t have any kids of my own. And it’s fabulous. I have to be honest with you though. After Peter and I got to see our friends’ twins, we got home and had the following conversation at the kitchen table:
Sara: Doesn’t seeing those teeny tiny babies make you want to have a little baby of our own??
Pete: Yeah. It really does.
*Sit in blissful silence for about 37 seconds*
Sara: Let’s get real. We’re not ready for that shit. Literally.
So, we will continue loving on our friends’ babies until we’re ready for that shit.
The SECOND best thing about friends having babies is that I get to cook to my little heart’s desire because they are going to be busy changing diapers and trying to sleep. My cousin Kelly came up the weekend after THREE babies were born so that we could cook and bake away. We were also baking for my sister Jenna and her husband because Jenna’s on bed rest until her baby comes in the middle of May. That’s a lot of food!!
After we made all this food, I had to go deliver it and see some babies!! First, we met Craig and Katie’s twins, Henry and Oliver. But I didn’t give them any food because they were moving in a few days (talk about busy people) and were cleaning out their fridge. I had the privilege of being the photographer when Craig and Katie got to hold their boys for the very first time. It was one of the most beautiful things I’ve ever seen. Ever. I cried.
Now let’s look at how cute their babies are, including their son Noah, who I could just eat up he’s so sweet!!
I went down to Illinois to visit Jenna for a few days and help her out a little, but I MOSTLY went down because I got to see THIS LITTLE MUNCHKIN BUTT. (Sorry Jenna. But I know you know it’s the truth.)
