Bundle of Joy

Today I got to snuggle the absolutely perfect, precious, one day old baby girl of my friend of 32 years. (Longtime readers know the friend as Catfish, the nickname my dad gave her when we were little.)  It made my heart sing! She fit in my arms so nicely, she smelled so lovely and she made the sweetest faces and sounds. Her little flowered nightgown with its lacy, ruffled edge was darling.

Babies are such a miracle, such an amazing time of life--with everything so brand new and glowing with hope and excitement.

As soon as I got back in my car, I called my husband and told him that I've been thinking about it for a really long time now and that we need to make a plan because I know for a fact that I want a MacBook Pro. Because my friend had a brand new one of those, too. I need one.

And that's how we know I'm over the baby phase, my friends.

But, man, other people's babies are awesome.

This made me LOL. Congrats to Catfish (whose bachelorette party photos I will never forget) Good luck on the MacBook Pro.

I will be sure to publish a MacBook Pro birth announcement when I get my way.

And I don't think anyone will forget those photos ;-)
