Pregnancies Pregnancies Everywhere

My brother called to reveal his wife is pregnant.  I thought they were going to wait, but figured out at their wedding that she was ready.  As such, it's not a big surprise, and I'm pretty excited that Baby X is going to have a close-in-age cousin (albeit in another state).  However, because I wasn't over the moon excited for them, my brother was a little irritated.  I don't know that I would be jumping up  and down in excitement, as that's not my personality, but I can tell that I have nice thick wall built up.

A friend announced her pregnancy by bringing Ba.by R.uth candy bars to a gathering.  I acted appropriately, then went home and devoured the stupid candy bar, while working until 1:00am on a project for work.  Ah, serotonin release brought on by sugar, how I love you so.  (There may have been wine involved too.)

Another friend called S an hour after his son was born.  They have two now, a girl and a boy.

We found out that using Amer.ican Adopt.ions doubles the amount of money we'll need for the second adoption.

There are several other couples I know actively ttc.  Just waiting for several proverbial shoes to drop.  On my head.


I wish I were here
