Bun in the Oven

I'm at the age in my life where most of my friends are married and beginning to have babies. I love it. Only because babies grow into kids, and I really love kids. They're so little and funny and it's entirely unintentional.

It's unfortunate that most of these pregnant bellies don't live near me. My friend Sarah lives in Savannah with her husband, Devin. And Ty's sister, Mandy, lives in north Arkansas. For these girls, it's probably a good thing. The last time I saw Sarah, I actually talked to her belly. I never thought I would be that person, but seeing one of your oldest friends with a baby bump will do strange things to you.

Even with miles in between, friends and family get to play a part in the pregnancy through blogs and baby bump pictures. This is Mandy's picture below (please don't kill me for posting this, Mandy). Of course, she's in athletic gear. Being the super fit gal that she is.


I think my anticipation grows with their bellies. I can't wait to meet them both.

Exposed baby bumps gross me out.

Aww, I think it's great when you can't see these people in person. I like to see how things are growing.

I am among the many pregnant women...I'm 18 weeks tomorrow! I'm pretty sure that it was airborne around the beginning of the year because MANY of my friends are also pregnant.

Congrats to you as well. Are you taking photos of your baby bump throughout your pregnancy?

I just couldn't help it! I'm so excited. And let's hope my having children is at least a couple of years away.

:) yeah, you've got a little more life to live before you start poppin' little ones out...you're young!! i know, my friends were all having babies when i was your age, but i wasn't married then and needed to do that and enjoy it first! :)

I hear you. I love being around babies and kids, but the thought never enters my mind that I'm ready to have my own. However, I am ready to spoil one little girl in particular!
