Babies, Babies, Everywhere

There’s a scene in Gilmore Girls where Lorelei calls Rory to make sure she is doing what she needs to when it comes to uh… protection. Rory, obviously confused by this sudden worry, asks what is going on with her Mother.  “You have got to figure, if he shoots, he scores. I mean, look around you. There are babies popping out all over the place!” exclaims Lorelai. Rory responds with “You are in a maternity ward! You’ve got a skewed sample there.”

This is how I feel about the amount of baby boys being born. Everyone is popping out baby boys! In Texas, between 6 friends, 3 cousins and my sister there have been 11 boys born in the last 3 years and 0 girls. ZERO. The odds are definitely in favor of me having a girl. I don’t care either way, but it just makes sense.

I love all these precious boys though…just look how stinkin’ adorable they are…

I hate that they boys barely know me since I so rarely get to see them. I miss their births, most of their birthdays and every other sort of celebration. My friend, Danica, was due to have her baby boy in a couple of weeks, but I kept insisting that she must have him over Labor Day weekend so I can be there for at least one birth. So, being the great friend that she is, she went into to labor less than 12 hours after my arrival.

Besides, all my friend’s precious boys, I got to spend so much (yet not enough) time with my nephew, Micah. Last time I saw him he was only a month old, now he is almost 6 months! This was also Husband’s first time to meet him.

I know I’m biased, but you all have to admit that he is one friggin’ adorable little boy. He obviously takes after his Auntie.
