Baby Fever

A few years ago 2 of our friends got engaged and married. Then began a 2 year run of all of our friends getting married. We seriously had about 10-15 weddings each year and every weekend was spent at a shower, wedding, or tea.  It was crazy!

Now that everyone is married, it seems that baby fever has now hit our group of friends. It is bittersweet in a way because though I am super excited for my pregnant friends and new mothers, I am sad that the days of partying and traveling with friends may be winding down. I guess you can't be 21 forever.

After meeting baby Zander this weekend I have gotten more and more excited about my friends and the experiences that they soon will have once their children are born. I want to be a big part of their lives and hope that one day our children will be best friends as their parents (we) are.

I look forward to weekends meeting up and watching the children playing together while we all catch up.  I know that though this will be a new change in our lives, but it will be a wonderful one. Just because people have babies doesn't mean they still can't have fun and do things, it will just be a bit different. I guess this is just a part of growing up. 

Me and sweet baby Zander
So to my new mother friends, I just want you to know how happy I am for you and for my mother-to-be friends, how excited I feel for you!

And don't worry, we still have several friends who aren't pregnant or trying anytime soon, so I still have a few partners in crime. At least for now....


  1. Life definitely has its different phases for sure. Enjoy all those babies :)

  2. Jess - You are right, you can still have fun if you have babies. And in my opinion, they make everything more fun! Why don't you guys go ahead and jump on the bandwagon?!? ;)

  3. So fun that you get to play with all those babies :)
