Welcome to the World Baby Alice

Welcome to the world baby Alice. It was a pleasure to meet you! I even broke my own cardinal rule and touched you before you are potty trained (new babies are scary, I don’t want to break you)! I just couldn’t help it; you are so cute and obviously deeply intellectually gifted.

New babies scare me so bad. But I sucked it up, because Alice is perfect and amazing and beautiful.

I’ve been friends with your Mom since we were 12 years old – since she is one of my oldest friends, I’m adopting you as my niece. I apologize in advance for the embarrassment I will cause you as a teenager.

Jen – you’re a Mom now! Doesn’t it seem like we were just in high school?

However, I promise to always be there for you and your Parents. I promise to teach you how to cuss properly (when you are 18, of course), open a wine bottle without an opener (when you are 21, of course) and give you your first riding lesson (with a helmet, of course).

I also promise to do everything in my power to leave this community, this country and this world a better place for you, your gender and your generation. Just promise me you’ll carry on that legacy.

I’m not going to lie. Alice made my ovaries hurt. She is so perfect! Karen and Jen! How can you stand it?

I love you baby Alice, I can’t wait to watch you grow up! Congratulations Jennifer and Karen, I’m so proud of you and honored that you are including me in Alice’s life.

    That was so cute! I too am scared of babies, but I am also in a baby mood right now because I’m going to have one soon. It will be a big deal, just like Alice.

    • Hells yeah it will be a big deal!!!! Congratulations! That is so exciting!!!! Babies are so scary, but you know what, the more I see Alice, the less fear I have. I have hope that I will hold her soon. I look forward to reading about your babe!
