Babies babies everywhere.

Mary Poppins had a post up at PiP all about babies. Like I told her, if I had a uterus, and if Hubby had all his tubes intact, we would be making us a baby. Okay, so I would be making the baby. Hubby would be in a coma. Otherwise I'd never get him to agree to another one.
I miss the baby stuff. I miss the snuggling, the neck breathing, the teeny little clothes. It's been long enough now that I can even look back at the night feedings through a haze of "baby love" and see the comfort of rocking in the dark, with a tiny body curled up on my chest.
If it were possible, I would (along with a million other women) have only babies. No, not actually GIVE BIRTH to them, just....have them. They would stay little for a long time, and then, I dunno. They wouldn't turn into teenagers, that's for sure. They'd skip the horrors of being picky toddlers. Just babies. Lots and lots of babies. Baby toes, baby skin, tiny little hats, the smell of powder everywhere, the soft glow that seems to follow them around. (Perhaps that's the wine talking now). Yup, I'd have a litter full of the little creatures.
You can see why Hubby is so glad that I have no uterus.

And that, my dear is why I quit corporate America to become a baby nanny. =)

You got babies in your head. =)

Do you think that the "pang of want" is something to do with not having a uterus? I say it's a good thing I don't have one either.
For about the last 4 years, I have really wanted to have a baby. But unlike you, I love the giving birth thing...I am crazy I know, but I loved the pregnancy thing and the birth. That was when I was at my absolute healthiest.
guess it's time for another puppy.

My baby-yearning days are safely over, and if I found myself pregnant (apart from having a few choice words to say to a certain doctor) I'd probably spend the first few weeks crying, but there's no denying that they're appealing little critters. I love them to bits when they're someone else's!

(Not PiP, though: it was on "It's Not All Mary Poppins".)
