Oh Baby...

This is a post about babies... NO! I repeat NO! The Jetplanes aren't pregnant but it sure feels like everyone else is.

And just to make myself clear.... I am over the moon happy for them. But its still a weird conversation, because as I've stated before, I'm still a little immature about the situation (even though I am 29 yrs old). And I still feel like in some ways we aren't old enough to start having babies yet...even though I totally know that we are. I never said I was rational in my thought process about this...

Its just crazy because we've went through years of people NOT wanting to get pregnant and now you are in a time where people are wanting/trying to get pregnant.

Here's how the convo went down...

Lou: "I'm pregnant!!"
Me: "OMG! Really! Seriously! I'm so... wait are we excited? We are excited, right?"
Lou: "Yes! We're happy! It wasn't planned but we're happy!"
Me: "Great! Because I'm totally crying over here! I'm so happy for you guys!"

Its still strange because I feel like, even though we've all been out of college for going on 7 years now...wow 7 years... I still feel like we're those young college girls in our black minis, backless shirts, and knee high black boots...going out hitting the town, doing shots, and dancing to techno music until 5 in the morning...

But (un)fortunately we are not... Our alcohol tolerance has decreased and our skirt lengths have increased but our love for one another has always remained the same.

Now...when are the Jetplanes going to have a baby? Not for some time...

I remember when I got married and thought how weird it was to be in a place where it wouldn't be the end of the world if I got pregnant. You go from the thought of it scaring you to death...to it being okay in one day. It's nice to be on the other side.

I couldn't agree with you more. I still feel like I am WAY too young to be having babies. (We aren't pregnant and aren't trying either) But we are talking about it...crazy! I'm the first of my friends to get married and I think we will be the first to have kids. YIKES! Good thing we have awhile.

Great post! I couldn't agree more. I was just talking to one of my friends about this the other day. You spend your early 20's trying everything you can to NOT get prego, and in your late 20's early 30's it's the complete opposite.

I have 2 kids, but I can still understand what mean about feeling like you're still that college girl. I still feel like I'm 23, but I just turned 32! Where in the world did the time go???

Totally with you! Both my husband and I feel like we are way too young to start having children. While engaged, we used to say when he made Captain, but now we are considering waiting until Major.
