Oh baby!

Okay there has been entirely too much baby talk over here lately. When I dream about babies, when most of the conversations around me revolve around babies, and when my body tries to act like it's pregnant (when I'm definitely not), then I know there's too much little tyke talk. Why all the baby mania? Well...

One of my friends had twin baby girls before Christmas.

Another friend from the office is having twin girls.

My neighbor is due in 4 weeks with a baby girl.

I'm knee deep in planning one baby shower and...

...planning baby sugar cookies for the other one.

Yep, lots of baby talk.

I dreamed the other night that I gave birth to a boy and a girl. They were both about two pounds each and absolutely precious. They looked perfectly healthy and normal for two pounds but hey it was a dream after all. I pushed the babies in swings at the park when my hubby came up to me with grim news. He tells me that I can't keep the babies because they are too expensive. Excuse me? They end up in the care of health and welfare and I have to go visit them in the office. (Sorry honey but I would tell you where to stick it if you said that in real life.) I don't remember much else about the dream but it's not the first one I've had about babies lately.
I guess I'm just excited for all the new little ones to arrive. It's really reminding me of how much I miss having a newborn. I don't really miss the "tar" diapers or late night feedings though! Yet I do miss looking upon a tiny newborn face completely at peace. There is just something magical about holding a new baby. Well, I better head off to bed now, possibly to dream about tiny fingers and toes...
By the way if anyone knows any fun baby shower games let me know!


3 of you hit me up with a comment.:

a really fun game is to place baby items into brown bags. I did about 12 different bags. Then number them and pass them around have everyone write down what they think is in the bag. Be very specific (brand size ect.) the one with the most correct bags wins.

Quit with all the baby talk.
