Something dawned on me recently that we seem to be acquainted with a lot of folks who are adding to their families!
The old joke used to be -when the news would come through that this couple or that one was having a baby -be it a first or fifth -or maybe even more -that they apparently hadn't been watching Johnny Carson.
But there does seem to be an inordinate number of folks who are friends (and even some family members too) who have recently had a baby or who are currently expecting a child. In the past three months alone, two cousins of ours have had additions to their family, and three friends of Mandy's are due within the next 3-4 months now too.
I'm thinking either the people adding to their families have changed their television viewing habits or perhaps they have jobs -or maybe they've invested heavily in stock purchases of baby shower invitations!
But the truth be told here whenever I learn that a friend or relative is having their first child or maybe adding yet another child into the mix, I really do get very excited for the parents regardless of the circumstances.
And besides that, baby showers are always a heck of a lot of fun too!
