One of my close friends just had her first baby. While many of my friends have kids, I was never there to see them during the pregnancy or even until the child got much bigger. So, this was my first close friend to see get the belly and feel the kicking, etc. It just boggles my mind, that one day it's just the two of you and the next, there is three and your life is changed forever. A new person is there. It seems so bizaare and unbelievable to me. I guess that is why they call it the "Miracle of Childbirth."
I can't imagine being at that stage in my life. I guess it is okay that after only 8 months of marriage it seems out of the question (I have way too much school left) but wow, I can't fathom having any kids right now but so many young mothers do it so well, and with multiple tiny children. Nursery every other week at church makes me realize how much work it must be. I need a break after my 2 hours of giving parents a break. Hopefully I'll manage when my time comes!
