Now if you know me, you know that I go though bouts of "baby mania". I'd say it's mild to mediocre most of the time, but about every other month I get the "I want a baby now" feeling. Well it seems that getting married has eased the baby need. I'm easing into the married life very well and that seems to be very happy place for us right now. I like this stage and I want to enjoy it for a while.
Well then I read my little cousin's blog(she's in her mid 20s but I still think of her as my little cousin). My cousin Melissa has the cutest cutest little girl named Ella. I check that blog daily for new Ella photos and stories. Sunday I Check Melissa's blog for new stuff and what do I find out? Baby #2 is on the way. I am so excited! Firstly, I am excited for my cousin and her husband. They have made a happy little family and I'm very excited for more cute babies from them. Secondly, I found out family gossip before the family gossip train(my mother, aunt and cousin) passed it down here. That's a pretty impressive feat being the family member the farthest south. This train starts in Northern Oregon and will finally find it's way to me in Southern California. Well this newest bit of news has sparked the Baby Mania big time. I actually yelled at Mario "MY LITTLE COUSIN WILL HAVE TWO KIDS AND WE HAVE NONE!" Yeah I was a little embarrassed at that outburst afterwords. However, the man was completely unfazed. He says fine, but we are bursting at the seams in this little apartment, we have to find a bigger place before we have a baby. All that's standing between us and a baby is a new apartment? That's all? So we can start trying now cause we are looking for a bigger place to live anyway. The man is ready any time. Well the reality that we could add to our newly made family any time we want scareded me a little and now Baby Mania is back in check for now. We'll see how long that lasts!
