The good news is that my favorite niece has just landed a job, in her chosen and preferred field, in graphic design in Virginia. The bad news is that she will be moving far away and she is 4 months pregnant. I am happy that she is going to be doing something that she loves and has worked very hard at, but I am totally depressed to think that I won’t play as big of a role in the new baby’s life as I was expecting and looking for to doing.
I just love babies and there really aren’t any “babies” in the family right now. Don’t get me wrong there are numerous family members that certainly act like babies and many that are treated like babies, but that is a whole other story for some other time. Right now I’m trying to deal with the fact that she (mother and baby) will be far away and I’ll only see them a few times a year, if that….
The first time I became pregnant I was sure that I was going to have a boy. So when the big day came that we made the urgent and quick trip to the hospital and our daughter was born I was totally shocked, but of course thankful that she was healthy and was able to come home with us in no time. Unfortunately we had prepared for a little boy so we had to return some of the things we had bought as well as buy a bunch of girly stuff that turned out to be pretty fun actually. I had no idea how much fun it would be caring and dressing up a little girl.
I really wish that they had clothes like they have today for kids and these wonderful Australian fashion lines, that are shown in the video below are just too darned cute. It seems that anything you can even dream of is available and with the Internet bringing so much more to us all via the World Wide Web the selections seem to be endless. Sometimes just seeing cute little baby girl clothes makes me think of having another baby, but then I find myself somewhere where there is a crying baby and that urge leaves me – real quick like.
