Baby fever? Nah.

One of my friends just had a baby, and another one is pregnant (and due around my birthday!) A couple moms of the kids at the preschool are pregnant or have had a baby recently. Looking at the little tine babies makes me want to hold and snuggle one. They are so sweet and innocent at that age...and the best part is, they can't talk back at that age. They don't know everything at that age, and they can't run away from you at the store. And you are their entire world. BUT, I'm a huge advocate of sleep. Having 3 kids in 5 years, I lost a lot of sleep, and I'm now appreciating sleep. I don't think I could do the whole baby thing again for that reason alone. So, I'll just snuggle my friends' babies, and then give them back and have a full night of sleep, thank you very much!

Are they KIDDING me?

Baby names, oh my. The Social Security Administration has compiled their list of popular baby names for 2008. Emma is the top girl name, and Jacob is the top boy name. Bot cute names, if you ask me. There also is a link where you can search for unique baby names, I guess if you don't want your child to be one of 4 kids with the same name. Some of the names, I mean, really? Here are a few of the names on the list:

-Anemone (as in a sea anemone)
-Cedar (as in a tree)
-Hades (as in HELL)

Did they just go through a Webster's dictionary, close their eyes, and point to words on a page, thinking, "This might be a unique baby name"??
