We missed the (baby) boat

My husband and I apparently missed the baby boat.  Or in our case, we jumped ship too early.  As it turns out, we know 17 couples that are expecting their first child between now and August.  Apparently the Mayans had it all wrong.  2012 is the year of the baby!  I guess this shouldn’t surprise me since we attended 12 weddings in 2009 (including our own), 14 weddings in 2010 and 7 weddings this past year.  As well, we’re (hopefully) expecting to receive some additional baby news from more of our friends.  Let the baby showers begin 🙂

Kyle (12 weeks pregnant)

Granted, of the 17 couples we know, six are acquaintances, four live out of country and one lives out of province.

There are of course pros and cons to this.


Kyle will be between a year and a half to almost two years older than most of these babies.  That means, after their birth, it’ll be another year and a half at least until Kyle will have more “play friends”.


  1. We don’t need to look for new friends!
  2. Our friends will finally understand what my blog posts and baby ramblings mean.

Of course I’m just kidding.  It will all be positive!  We’re so excited and happy for our family and friends to begin this new journey of their lives.  We love every second with Kyle and we wouldn’t trade that for anything in the world.  If anything, this is making me think that we should start thinking about baby #2 soon!*

PS. As of posting date, three of our friends had their baby. Congrats to Sari and Scott on the birth of their son, Katie and Pete on the birth of their daughter and Carmi and Jeremy on the birth of their daughter.
