AHHH I'm back!

Friends, it's been awhile.
To catch you up, here are a few of my favorite things from the past few months:

Mr. Miles

Mr. Carver

Yes, after 3 months of not blogging, 2 of my friends have had babies!!! Miles belongs to Will and Chelsea, our friends in Durham. Carver belongs to Val and Ethan who live in Gainesville, FL. I'm sad because I haven't gotten to meet Carver yet, but I feel so lucky to get to snuggle Miles at least once a week. (I steal him at small group all the time.)
Of course, this leads you to ask: "Doesn't this make you want to have babies, Amy?" Well, yes and no. Holding Miles and looking at his perfectness and smelling his sweet baby smell definitely make me want a baby ASAP. Then I'll have a crazy busy week and can barely get myself fed and clothed and I think "Ok, not time yet!"
Just because I know it's not time doesn't make me want one any less though. It just makes me really excited thinking about when it'll be our turn and reminds me to soak up all the baby knowledge and advice I can. It's great to watch friends go through experiences and be able to take notes. Especially when those friends are really great parents and people in general. (Will/Chels, Andy/Anita, Val/Ethan, this means YOU!)
Thanks for being such great teachers guys!

Yayyyyyy! Thanks James! That's a perfect way to put it. You should be excited for when the time comes. And it will come at the perfect time. And then you'll forget to feed and bathe and clothe yourself. Which I kind of did before...
I need to get you some more pictures!
