The Baby Bug

I've got it bad! Lately it seems like A LOT of women I know are about to or have recently given birth.  I am ecstatic for them (really I am), but each time I say congratulations, there's a little voice in my heart that reminds me, that will never be me again.  I know a lot of people would say that I am crazy for feeling that way, and seven years ago when I agreed to shutting down the baby factory I probably would have agreed with them.  But I had no idea that I would ache to hold another newborn. I beat myself up for this, because I know there are women out there who would give their right arm for one child, let alone the seven beautiful, healthy babies that I have been blessed with. 

Dh reminds me that someday I have grandchildren to look forward to (please GOD let that be a loooong way off!) so until they come along I am just gonna baby my kids, whether they like it or not!

There does seem to be A LOT of new babies lately. I don't have any kids but my great niece just had her first baby-- And oh that tiny baby makes us all hope for more.

Hang in there. They say grandkids are the best!

I can totally relate. I am 35 and my two kids are almost grown yet I still find myself wanting babies. I think it is just in our nature.
