Marci had her baby! It’s a boy! I can’t wait to get my hands on him. All of a sudden I feel like I’m surrounded by babies. My youngest, Emmeline, is two, and for some strange reason, against all logic, I want another baby. One girlfriend tells me that this is purely biological and after two years, the body is ready to have another go. She’s talked me down from the ledge a few times.
When it comes to babies, mind/body communication goes out the window. My mind very clearly recalls the insomnia, restless leg syndrome, sciatica, heartburn, memory loss, and fatigue as if it were yesterday. My body, on the other hand, is all…
C’mon. It wasn’t that bad! Don’t you want to try for a boy?
I have another girlfriend who is a self-described baby snatcher. She looooves babies and at the drop of a hat will change, burp, rock, walk or swaddle anything that remotely looks like a baby. And even though she’s “fixed,” she can still relate to the baby-itch. But she is wise to remind me that the best thing about other people’s babies is that you get to give them back.
Isn’t that what we used to say about puppies?
So, instead of causing heart-palpitations in my husband, I will just delight in the newness of other people’s babies and share with you dreamy pictures of nurseries and the precious things that people put in them.
Didn’t you know? Babies love to look at babies. Take a look at these Little Darlings by photographer Sharon Montrose.
This is such a beautiful way to decorate a nursery and the prints are so affordable. I can’t imagine anyone getting tired of looking at these. I think they would be perfect in my three year old’s room because she’s my little veterinarian. What I love about these images is that we can see up close the beauty and innocence of new life.
Ahhhh. Everybody loves a baby.
Here are my favorites! Which ones do you love? Take a look here.
