I'm going to lose count!

My sister and I added up something today...we each made lists and then combined them to get the grand total...what grand total, you're asking? Well, how many babies of friends and family will (or have already) make their appearance from Spring 2007 through Spring 2008.

The number is staggering...we think...21 pregnancies to produce 22 childrean. Wow!! But, that's not all that is amazing.

Two of those children were born to sisters-in-law of a very good friend of mine, Paulette (who is due with her own new baby in November), on THE SAME DAY -- this past Saturday. Please welcome the too cute for words cousins shown below...

Then on Monday, another cutie pie entered the world...his mama is the little sister of my good buddy Marge and one of my sister's very best friends. Here's Mo, as we've nicknamed him already...

And, if that's not enough...there are still 2 more babies that will make their appearances in the next 6 days. One will belong to my best friend from college, Virginia (she is my friend who I met in NYC a couple months ago). The other baby will belong to Paulette's 3rd sister-in-law...yes, you caught that right (if you were paying attention)...4 sisters were pregnant at the very same time.

God is amazing! And He has blessed so many families who are special to me with so much joy and new life this year!

ok, you are so good! I don't even have pics on my blog yet!

Sally said...

Yeah, Paulette, I noticed! =)

That's ok, you've been busy holding them, I'm sure...way better than pictures.

I was hoping to post pics of Virginia's little one, but he's hiding out!

Overwhelmed! said...

Wow, that's a lot of babies!

What beautiful babies you've shown here. :)

About 2 to 3 years ago, I was counting all the people I knew who were preggo. I stopped counting after I got to 25, but I was not done. And now, most of the same people are preggo again, or just had their second child. I am getting frustrated by MY lack of participation!

I have to settle for spoiling others' kids, and pictures on the blogs. *le sigh*
