Babies, Babies, Everywhere!

Babies, Babies Everywhere!!!

     Mom and Dad used to tell an old story.  And since I am the author of the post,
I will also start out as the subject.  At the age of 2 years and 6 days, I was sent to stay 
with Aunt Diane.  I adored her.  My memories all involve chocolate chip cookies baked 
and eaten at her house.  I surely did not mind the spoiling I got there.  
     A few days later, Aunt Diane brought me home to not one baby filled bassinet, but two. 
I stood, mouth gaping, wide eyed trying to figure out what I was seeing.  Then I began to run
from cradle to cradle saying "Baby, Baby, Baby, Baby, Baby"  until Mom quickly grew tired,
handed me back to Aunt Diane and asked if she could possibly take me back home. 

Fast forward 39 years - I have a fantastic sister in law, Jenny.
We hit it off just right, but I have never known quite why.  
Until last night.

     We had the fantastic good fortune to see Laila's new babies in the NICU in 
Salt Lake City.  They were kept in their own rooms which REALLY bothered Jenny. 
As we looked at Preston, her mind turned to Noah, as we looked at Noah, her mind 
turned back to Preston.  I know she may not have been saying Baby, Baby, Baby, 
Baby as she walked briskly from room to room. 

But I KNOW she was thinking it!!!!!
