just the other day
came by to talk.
she asked if I had heard the big news.
there is so much of it these days
(most of which i would like to block out)
she told me she is pregnant.
today, i went to a baby shower where three ladies are pregnant!
(one with twins!)
there were only 8 of us there...
I stayed away
from whatever water they were drinking.
next week i am going to another.
babies, babies, babies
i love that baby smell,
no, not THAT smell,
the smell that is right in the center
of that swirl of hair
on the crown
of that sweet little angel's head
while asleep in your arms.
I have never been a big registry person.
i want to get the mom
what they want,
but I love to give them
something that no one else will.
I know it may be quirky...
but there is a lot of love that goes into each one
and each one is different.
Here is the one I made today
(some of the adhesive is still wet in the photo
and looks yucky,
but it came out ok)
the proud momma is having twins!
as i left the party
one of the "mothers to be" stopped me
"I want you to know, I am expecting a handmade gift too."
I smiled and said "of course."
she is only six weeks along...
i have some time.
