I found out today another of my good friends is pregnant! I am so excited for her and her husband. This is the 3rd pregnancy of close friends in the last few months. And it's all of their first babies. It's a very exciting time and I guess we all knew it was coming sooner or later. There have been a few babies born to our friends in the last couple of years (hi Nikki!), but so far no widespread child epidemic. Now that we're 30, I know it's going to continue.
We're just not quite ready to be part of it yet. We're still getting over the shock of raising a puppy. And, we have a few things left to do - I know if we wait for the exact 'right' time it will never happen, but we have a few specific things we want to accomplish first. Of course, I know it's not all up to us. My friend Carrie sent out an email today to let everyone she had not been able to contact in person know the great news. As she put it - "Surprised? So are we!" I thought that was hilarious and it did remind me that there are no guarantees!
Congratulations to all my friends that are embarking on the journey of parenthood!
