“When are you going to have a baby?”
Ahhh… the question of the year! I think I am asked this question every single day for the past year! Don’t get me wrong… I don’t dislike being asked this. In fact, it makes me feel all warm and giddy inside!
Truth is that we would love to have a baby right now… everyone who knows me know that I am pretty much obsessed with babies and I would love to be a younger mom. In fact, my plan was to have my first child when I am 25, but now I am about two years behind on that plan… yikes!
What is holding us back? Well… we’re just not ready. I know, I know… you can never be ready enough for a baby. Along with the question, I get that response every day too! I understand that, but I mean it in a different way. There are just a few things that I would like to have done and ready before we bring a little baby into our family. You know… like sealing a deal on a house… that is the major thing that is holding us back. I just don’t want to deal with purchasing a home while being pregnant or with a baby. Both times are stressful and I don’t want to combine both. Once we have a house of our own, ask me again and the answer may be different!
On another note, our good friends Mikal and Paline had their baby shower for Baby Lauren this past weekend. I was honored to be part of it… especially in the decorations/games department because that is right up my alley. I am a sucker for little details and I enjoyed putting them together. It was my first time ever making a diaper cake and with the help of Sandy and Lily, I must say that it was a huge success! Thanks to my friend Michelle for making a customized piñata… this was a big hit… literally! The games were interesting, but I think the people who participated had a lot of fun. One lesson learned is that I should probably have some prizes for the kids because they will surprise you and come up as winners over the adults! LOL! Here are some pictures that Daddy to Be, Mikal took… can you guess what the theme was? ;)
Mikal had set up a photobooth and had the guests take pictures, printed them right away and design a page for Lauren's scrapbook. I thought this was such a great idea and the outcome was awesome! I made a special request for this also when it comes to my turn! Wuahahhah!
