Contrary to all popular beliefs...

It's Friday morning, and I'm looking forward to the weekend. In fact, I've been looking forward to this weekend for a long time, because I get to go and visit my fabulous sister and brother-in-law and their Amazing Baby Lucy!

Since I'm a very sharing person, I've shared my excitement with my co-workers. They all know ("yes, Julie, you told me three times already") that I'm excited about my weekend. However, one friend had a few words of wisdom and/or warning for me:

Glenn very kindly told me to be careful because "you know, Julie, contrary to all popular beliefs, babies come from holding babies."

This is not the first time I've been told I'm a little baby-crazy (I borrow babies at church, I ooh and ahh at the cute pictures of Lucy Jenny sometimes sends me (my computer background at work is, of course, Lucy (see, everybody loves parenthesis)), I visit friends with babies, and I love ward parties where I can play with all the kids). I think that what struck me is that Glenn's words are so funny because they're so true - borrowing babies doesn't keep me from wanting to be a mommy someday - it actually increases that desire.

So I'm ready to go have a great weekend, and Dan (my husband) will just have to put up with me when I get back because then I will be truly baby-crazy.

Lucy just wanted to let everyone know that she is also eagerly awaiting Auntie Ju Ju's arrival ... but that she's now crawling so fast it might be hard to catch her to hold her!
