Babies... have I mentioned before how earlier this year I had a yearning to have a baby? Yep, my maternal instincts was on an unusual high that point that I told Alphatin, 'Can I skip the marriage part and just have a baby without a daddy?'
Crazy, I know especially coz of religious reasons and I don't have any suicidal thoughts in my brain. Haha! But I think it's normal at times for one to suddenly feel like a baby would make life more meaningful. The only difference in this case is, I didn't want to get married (at the moment when the thought came on), and I didn't think I need anyone to "help" me get the baby (if you know what I mean). I would've been glad to just get preggers on my own (clinically done) or even to just adopt. But of course I'm not totally insane. Although I did give it some thought, especially on how to get a child that's my own without having a baby-daddy or having to get married, I do realise that financially any baby I would have would not be super-duper happy or laden with the comforts I had as a child in my current state of affairs.
So... baby project for me is on hold till the next pang, which I hope would be when I actually have a husband or just about to be married. Thanks!
But talking about babies wasn't to end there... As it turns out, my sister Buffy and BIL got preggers in early July of this year. I'm gonna be an aunt again!! So I might not have a baby of my own but my sister, InsyaAllah, will have one of her own come February 2012. Wheeee!!! A baby in the house again.
And not only that, I also found out mid-Ramadhan that one of my besties, Alphatin and her hubby-bubby Jasper are expecting as well! WOW!! Am just so stoked for these people. Good things usually come to those who wait and deserve it. I am so glad that these wonderful people are going to be blessed with one of the many gifts in life by Allah Almighty. Alhamdulillah...
I hope when it is my turn, I'd be just as lucky. InsyaAllah... I suppose all that urge to have a baby didn't go all to waste since two of the people I love in this world will be getting one of their own soon. It'll be great for sure!
p/s: Makbed also got a bouncing baby boy this year, who I have not met yet. But MASYAALLAH... he is GORGEOUS just like his big sister and momma. <3
