on babies

Everyone knows that babies are the most miraculous, amazing, and wonderful beings imaginable. Even if you don't have or want your own, try looking at a newborn and not being overwhelmed that you're staring at a real, tangible miracle.

I was invited to a beautiful baby shower on the beach, pictured above, a little while back, for one such miracle who will make her debut in September.

I'm on my way tomorrow morning to visit my brand new niece for a few days, and get in some of those newborn looks and cuddles.

And we have another little bundle of wonderfulness on the way ourselves - the next little Grahamlet has a nice strong heartbeat and is due on my birthday, at the end of March. After the last time, it's harder to be excited without worry, but as long as I'm feeling completely uninspired, exhausted, nauseous, and disgusted by just about everything, I think things are going well.

  1. Congratulations on expecting again, Sherrie!! I'm so excited for you! Having had a miscarriage before my first birth, I, too, was as worried as I was excited. Sending good thoughts your way!

    A baby shower on the beach has to be the BEST idea! Have fun visiting your niece.

  2. Congratulations Sherrie! Wonderful news. Yes, as awful as the nausea is, it is also reassuring. Take care.

  3. Congratulations! Keeping my fingers crossed, hope all goes well. I had a miscarriage with my first pregnancy, and it certainly makes that first trimester worrisome for subsequent pregnancies. Nausea's good sign, take care of yourself.

  5. I came into this here room specifically to send you and e-mail that said, basically, "I can't tell you how happy it makes me to see you neglecting your blog and, when you do post, each time mentioning how tired you are. Because this makes me know for certain you are carrying a little life in you - one that's sticking!"

    I am quite smiling now to see this post, which popped up moments before I started my e-mail to you.
