Babies & Kiddos Everywhere!

So, Hello there.

Arpil... yeah, I spelled that the right way! Just had baby No.2 Weston! Ya know, I love kids, little ones. So I was sad that he was born Tuesday morning and today being Thursday, I felt like a waste of an aunt... :( So, I got to stop by after work today to visit with April and Mom. Let me tell you, I just think April is so gorgeous. Especially when I see her interacting with lil' Autumn. She is just So sweet with her, and she talks to her like she is an adult. I LOVE that. I want to do that. I despise baby talk. Anyway, back to the hospital--

So, April was saying how she could take me to see the baby. I was patient. Drew showed up, so he decided to walk me over there. Oh man. We walked into the dim light room, and Drew walked straight to a little plastic cradle. I peeked over the edge to see a little boy wrapped so tightly in a papoose of a blanet, all I could see was his head. He was facing the wall, so all I could see was his profile. As soon as I leaned over him to see his chubby little cheeks, I gasped. His little eyes peeked open and he started to move a little bit. I just wanted to pick him up and let him stretch out. His blond hair was cute and stuck to his hair. Tears welled up in my eyes as I realized that yes, this was Weston Hardy. Suddenly, a really overwhelming love came over me.

This boy, was meant for April and Drew. He was/is going to be Drew's little tag-along. I had the feeling that even though we don't know all about him, this guy was going to be great. He is going to be a loving child, a happy one. I can't wait to get to know him. He is beautiful.... *gulp* It... made me... want one. :(


Don't tell Andrew

It's okay--wanting one and admitting that you want one is the first step! It may still take a couple years till you're more ready, but wanting a baby is normal, even for those of us who want to wait a little while to start a family. Don't worry about it too much! :)

Staci your comment was so sweet. You are such a good aunt. I think you described him the way I feel about him too. He's very special, and April and Drew will be great parents and enjoy having a son. I can't wait to see your babies, they will be worth the wait.

Thank you Staci! We have a feeling Weston will be Drews little tag along also. And it's great that you want a kid. That's part of being a woman, it's natural. It's just whether it's right for you and if the time is right. Babies are so much fun. I love cuddling with little Weston.

Uh oh. Someone has the baby fever. That' how it all starts. I started having baby fever when I got engaged. But I'm a little older than you and I felt like I was running out of time. Whatever choice you decide to make, it will be the right one, whether you decide to wait a few years or if you decide you want one sooner than that. You have great sisters that served as a good examples and that will help you to become a great mother.

You are such an eloquent writer with a certain gift with words. I could feel every bit of what you experienced which is wonderful for me since I can't see Weston in person. Yet!! Logan was sad he missed your wedding. Can you imagine if he comes home and you have a baby????
