We got two birth announcements over the holiday weekend--one via e-mail, and one last night by phone. That makes twelve--yes, TWELVE--babies born to friends, family, or coworkers since the beginning of August. (And that's not counting my neighbor, who I don't know very well and who had twins eight weeks ago.) Four more are due in the next three months. Now, I don't begrudge anyone their happiness--god knows some of those pregnancies were a long time coming--but I hope that once this last round of babies is born, my friends all settle down and stop procreating for at least a few months. Please?
