I found out this morning that I am now a thrice Auntie and the two most recent additions to my brood have come in the last four weeks. Which has all been very exciting. Both are little girls and both born with lots of hair! (Which I happen to think is very cute in a baby)

But what's so nice about all of this is that I have been learning (a little) about pregnancy and birth from my sisters. Which both fascinates and scares the s**t out of me. I think pregnancy is such a miracle and all that the body does is amazing. There was a time when I thought about midwifery but I think I'm not cut out for it. Although getting to help with the experience of bringing new babies in the world every day, wow. So for now I shall stick with the delight of babies without actually having one.

This is because I don't think that just yet I am at that baby stage. In fact I'm more than certain I'm not ready at the moment. There are too many other things I want to do first, which is not to say I don't ever want to have babies but not just yet.

It gets you thinking though, seeing other people's babies, especially those related to me, makes me think about my own one day...

Congratulations! Quite a few of my university friends are pregnant now and it's definitely interesting, scary, and thought provoking!

Babies are quite thrilling.

Very not ready myself but hopefully one day. I do rather enjoy being Auntie Na.

Totally with you! Seem to be thinking more and more these days. Since our nephew was born it has got much worse. Especially when everyone keeps going on and on about how much he looks like his uncle O! Making me wonder if that is what our children will look like.

Haha, that's how the broodiness starts.
Babies ARE lovely. Mine was born quite bold. Looking back, I think she looked like a tiny very old man in the very early days. Fortunately for her, she is much prettier today :)
