Expecting

It finally happened. It was inevitable, really. I knew it would, but nonetheless, life as I know it is over.

I found out this week that one of my friends- MY college friends and her husband, are going to have a little boy this summer.

If you are 24-years-old and your world is still right-side up after that, then I'm doubting the realization has sunk in for you yet.

Immediate commentary to myself after an email telling me this was: Oh.My.Gosh. Shut up. You've got to be kidding. Less than eight hours of sleep every night!? Epidurals?? Above all else though, I just thought wow.

Wow.

She's going to be a mommy! To be the person who little arms reach out for and who is the end-all be-all of their world, and who they depend on for everything. What an amazing responsibility. And maybe a little terrifying.

He will undoubtedly have gorgeous blue eyes like both of his parents.

Congrats to them. I swear it's baby season around here. All of my friends are starting to become parents.
