So about 6 years ago, David and I decided that we would not have any children. We met late in our childbearing years - I was 35 and he was 39. We were so very happy together and we had so many things we wanted to do as a couple. We didn't feel that we wanted to start a family when I would be in my forties and we felt that it was too soon in our marriage to bring a child into the mix. Other than a few moments of doubt here and there, I have never really regretted that decision. I was in fact quite content with the freedom and the focus on us as a couple that not having kids provided.
That was until she came around.
Now, my sister Natalie had Nathan 8 years ago when David and I first got together, but as cute a baby as he was, he did not make me really want a child. Then my sister Kristina has Thomas 5 years ago. He was a gorgeous blue-eyed, blond haired boy and also very sweet but again, no major stirring of the loins.
But then, last year, this one :
This baby girl has made my hormones and my mommy instincts go into overdrive ! There is just something about her. I am in total baby-love !
Maybe it is the way she loves so deeply when she trusts you. Maybe it is how she falls asleep in my arms. Maybe it is her fishy, kissy lips :
Or maybe it is how she is filled with lightness, brightness and exquisite potential.
Whatever it is about this beautiful Kate, this baby-love of mine,
she has made me want a baby.
The thing is though,
the only baby I want is her ! And she is already taken by two perfect parents.
So, quiet down, hormones !
This baby factory is not re-opening for business.
I am back from a great trip to Montreal and La Conception. I got all filled up with family, friends, and baby-love. I am happy to be back in the cozy nest with the hubby and to sleep in my own bed. The green here is so magnificent ! This weekend will be all about getting outside as much as possible and making the most of our beautiful backyard ! A barbecue is a must, I think !
Have a great weekend ! It is good to be back in Blogland !
