Babies... Babies...Babies

Fall is in the air and so is the abundance of new little arrivals. From the blogs I follow three women have had little ones in the last couple weeks. A coworker of mine had a little one 5 months ago, another coworker had a little one 2 months ago. Currently at work, one of my coworkers will become a grandma any day now and an old University friend is due in 2 weeks. It seems like there has definitly been something in the water lately with all the new little ones coming into the world or soon to be arriving. I just wanted to say congratulations to all the new moms and moms to be out there.

 Now that Hubs and I are married, we started getting the "when are you going to have kids" question. To be honest, I'm definitly feeling a little bit of baby fever and would love to have a little one. At the same time, its nice enjoying being a newlywed with my Hubs and just experiencing married life. I do have a 4 year old step daughter who we see part times who I adore and does curb the baby fever at times (Hubs and I have a few goals we would like to complete before adding a new addition. First, we want to pay off some loans we have on the go, be a bit more established in our careers and the biggest of all is buying a house. Right now we live in a 2 bedroom townhome that we rent but to add to our family we would need at least 3 bedrooms. To rent a 3 bedroom is atrocious so it would make more sense to just buy a place of our own to raise our family. Unfortunately, we don't live in a cheap part of the country. The average price of a house here is $450,000 and that isn't for anything overly special. Our hopes is to purchase a house within the next year and go from there....
