I found out last night that another one of my husband’s cousins is expecting a baby. This one is due in December! That makes a total of 9 babies for the year in my family and my husband’s family. I am only counting my own baby due in August, our immediate families and branching out to our first cousins. Nine new babies in two families in a year! That’s a whole lot of babies! I shared with my sister that there is another pregnancy in James’ family and that baby makes nine and she asked, “What are you guys drinking?”
I have not stopped to count how many of my friends are pregnant or have recently had babies, but I know that there seems to be a whole lot of babies everywhere! I love babies and I love my kids and that’s why I’m having another baby! I wonder why everyone else is in on the baby boom! Is it the down turn in the economy? Is it that people need something positive in their lives? God knows we need the blessings? What do you think? Do you know a lot of family members or friends who are expecting babies? Why do you think there has been a recent baby boom?
