Three beautiful pieces of baby news from the last week (no, none of them are mine):

1. My college friend Rebs and her husband Rick are in the final throes of the paperwork that will allow them to be put on the waiting list to adopt a baby boy from Guatemala. I have already bought Joey a present. I hope he likes it. Since he doesn’t yet exist in this realm, I will have to wait a while to find out.

2. My D.C. friend Grace found out that the baby she and her husband Brad are expecting in November is going to be “a little dude.” Sarah saw Grace earlier this week and says she looks absolutely adorable as a mom-to-be.

3. Friends Pat and Heidi’s twin-watch drew to a close last night. Thomas Ward and Erin Elizabeth, welcome to the world. Your big brother Jack will now have some competition as D.C.’s Cutest Child. And you will find that you’ve got some terrific folks. (As a side note, these are the babies to whom the mouse booties belong. Luckily, they’re kind of small right now, because none of us — not even brand new babies who don’t know any better — want to be wearing a cotton-wool blend during a heat wave.)

Wow! Babies are popping up absolutely everywhere. Must be something in the water — I better stick to bottled :o)
