My husband and I have actually kind of wanted a baby since we got married. And then we weren't ready. And then we were. And then we moved to Italy and wanted to travel so we wanted to wait to have a baby.
Before, I wanted a baby because they're adorable. I saw the cute little toddlers waddling around at the laundromat or at work and would die over their cuteness. One of my best friend's little girl is just the cutest thing, Will's heterosexual life partner's daughter has the best smile, and my sister-in-law's girl never fails to put a smile on our faces. One of my other best friends is pregnant, two of my cousins have had babies this year, and a third cousin will have a baby soon. How could I not want a baby when I'm surrounded by babies?

I've done a lot of thinking and now I want a baby because I want a piece of my husband. He's such an amazing man and I love him so much. I want a little boy or girl who has his personality, even his dumb humor. I don't care who they look like, but I really hope they get his height. I want a little boy who will be a mini-Will who will make me laugh as much as his daddy does. I want a little girl who will be Daddy's little girl and will wrap him around her little pinkie the moment he first holds her.
I can't wait to raise a cute little baby with my husband. I promise I will try to keep the baby pictures down. Maybe only a dozen per post instead of 100. I want to say I'm not going to be one of the mommies who aren't obsessed with her children...but I can't promise. But I can promise to try not to go into baby overload when it happens.
