My best friend finally had her baby. You would remember her from the Bun in the Oven shower I designed for her here.
Luca was born and he sure has brought a lot of joy to many who have waited for this special being to come to such special parents. I am being called “Aunt Vivian” because he is almost mine (no kidding). I love him so much already. I loved him so much even before I met him and I can’t wait to see him grow and be part of his journey through life.
On the other hand, those feelings of wanting to have another child have become stronger than before. I have been struggling with this for quite some time now, and have been having difficulty accepting that I am done having more children. It really is not as easy as it may seem, and it really is not only about asking the Lord for an answer. Like I have said before, there are so many other factors to consider. It’s not solely my decision. I must have better faith.
Holding baby Luca gave me peace and it reminded me of how close I felt to heaven with each one of my children when they were born. I am so thankful that he came to earth to remind me once more why we are, how my children will always be mine and how FAMILY is all that matters.
So…I am Baby Hungry
And the kids don’t help either, when they are constantly asking: when they will be getting a little brother, and why, just like Erika, I’m not having a baby on my birthday.
She celebrated her birthday at the hospital. I brought the cake and candles, and against all baby delivery rules, she (we all did) indulged herself in some tasty raspberry and chocolate cake. (I know! I know! They are coffee filters but because we were trying to keep this “party” secret from the nurses we didn’t want to ask them for plates and that is all we had handy)
With the other aunts
And as long as I’m around nobody else is getting a hold of that baby
And I wish he was mine
Anybody else baby hungry out there?
