Yesterday, I was at the mall waiting for my lunch, and I felt something nudge my leg. An adorable little toddler looked up at me with big blue eyes and waved at me before her Mom carried her away.
The day before, I was in line at the market behind a man holding a baby boy. He (the baby, not the man,) waved at me and then hunkered down in his Dad's shoulder. "Ya can't just wave to her and then be shy buddy, that's not how it works," he said to him.
Yup. I'm feeling the first pangs of baby fever. But I know, despite seeing adorable babies wave to me in public, that we need to wait. That I need to finish school, get our acts together, save money to one day own property. I feel in limbo, like I really want to create a "home" for ourselves but know we aren't anywhere near that point. I don't even know what city we'll be calling home in 5 years, or what I'll be doing, or what he'll be doing. I like to plan and research and read about everything. It drives me a little crazy not to know what will happen.
Babies. All in good time. In the meantime, I hope they keep waving at me!
