Babies....

Oh aren’t they so sweet? Those soft, cuddly little creatures that everyone loves to snuggle. They smell so yummy and make you squeeze them tightly.

Yet are the same little people who cry all night and make us crazy.

I know what you are wondering……

Is there a baby in our future?

Absolutely NOT!

But the questions have started….

You know the ones I mean.

How does a baby get in your tummy?

How does it come out?

And fun things like that.

But I love how the question was phrased to me tonight….

Mommy, how does a baby get in your tummy that is born in a State (instead of China)?

You see, the savvy six year old knows that her sister was born in Georgia and her brother in Pennsylvania, yet she and her sister were born in China.

She knows she was not in my tummy. But Alex and Katie???

How does that happen??

So I told her the biological truth.

Which greatly disturbed the other members of the family.

Oh well.

What an adorable little cherub!!!!! Oh, that really makes me want another one. Maybe I'm not done.

The six-year-old and I had this discussion a while ago, after I became totally engrossed in a marathon of 16 and Pregnant and she caught me watching it. I think it's better they hear it from us rather than a friend who probably has some of the facts wrong anyway. So, good for you!

Just love that baby picture of Miss AG. :)
We get those questions here too. Aren't they fun? I do my best to answer them.

Okay, good. Glad I'm not the only adult who watches 16 and Pregnant.

Now that is one adorable little face!!

Yes, we've had the same questions and when Hannah's brothers came home from college one weekend, she promptly met them at the door and explained to them how babies are made. The look of shock & horror on their faces was priceless.

Oh, how cute! The Tongginator has become obsessed lately with how babies actually enter the world. After I explained the sanitized basics, she spent the next week randomly exclaiming, in a surprised voice, "there are THREE holes!" Heh.
