Babies.....

Well, I'm officially in a place where baby clothes, diapers, and pregnant women no longer apply to me. I know I've been there for a while now but it really hit me the other night when I was thinking about the people I know that are having babies and I thought, "wow, I dont have a baby anymore".... my baby is 3 and has recently decided she likes her independence a little. She has discovered the outside! More on that in a minute.

So, I was on this website that does great giveways (see the link on the right) and all you have to do to have a chance to win is leave a comment on the post....almost everything up for winning is geared toward babies or pregnant women. I was laughing at myself and thinking why am I even on here....I will never need these things ever again! But, what great gifts these things would make for the people that ARE having babies....for example, my Brother-in-law Jason and his wife Amanda. They got married last August in Hawaii and are now about to have their first baby next month. It is a girl and they are naming her Meredith Noelle...... they have one daughter from Amanada's previous relationship and her name is Ashley...what a doll she is. Here are a couple of pictures. I am excited for them to have their new little one....




Then there is my cousin James and his wife April who, after 4 boys are finally having a girl....actually they are having two!! Twin girls due in about 4 months.... Alisa's 2 sisters are both having babies again. They are both having boys after having girls 2 years ago. The 3 sisters all gave birth to their first babies just months apart from each other....now 2 of them are having their second baby months apart. Im thinking Alisa and Nate will be next.... So babies babies babies for everyone.....except me :) I am in a different group now and that is OK.

Speaking of my baby, Addison has decided that playing outside is really great. So great that she will walk out the door whenever she feels like it without me knowing. It's getting a little scary. She has figured out how to unlock the child protection knobs on the doors so I am going to have to find another solution. Yesterday I found her halfway up the street in nothing but her underwear. She was looking for me, she said. I wish we had a fenced yard so I could let her play to her hearts content. She is getting so big..... She still sleeps with us and I know its time to make her sleep in her own bed but giving her up is going to be really hard. She is my baby even though she is 3 and Im not ready to completely accept that. Here she is this morning....just waking up.
I will close this post with a picture of the babies I am currently growing/nursing.....my veggies! The first sprouts have broken through the soil! Its our green beans and I couldnt be more proud....
