Our Little Baby Factory

Some old friends from high school came by today for a BBQ. I'm one of the only few that did NOT have a baby in the last three months.
These four are all under 3 months. They all lined up on the floor and I asked my boys if they wanted to join in the fun. Marshall politely refused (no joke, his refusal was polite) but Tyler chuckled his way towards the group. He's a whole year older than most of them and I think he did some reminiscing of his own this afternoon- remembering what it was like to watch the world go by from that perspective.
I kept walking around the house, meeting mounds of baby gear, commenting on how our house looked like a little baby factory. If you look closely at the picture below, you can see Marshall's shorts... he really was there, just didn't want to be included in the baby count. He was really intrigued by the little ones though. He was admiring one of the little girls and he came to me and said, "I like that baby." It was really adorable how he was enjoying their sweet tinyness.
Here's the whole clan. Tina's hubby had to work, and there were so many others we wish could have made it. Hopefully next time...
It was so fun to get together. Let's not wait so long before we do it again!


  1. I'm so sad that we couldn't come and add to your factory! You'll definitely have to do it again :)

  2. My sister saw the baby picture at a glance and was like " Whoa that is one fat baby, whose is that?" Ha ha! It's mine! :) The horizontal stripes aren't slimming him down any either!

  3. That was fun to see pictures of all those guys and their babies! I haven't seen most of them for years.

  4. That really was so much fun! I can't wait till they're all up and playing with each other! Let's do it again soon!
