Qwx: Baby baby

I glanced up this morning and found myself looking at a girl. She was a hippie princess, gleeful and girly, almost hidden behind a tumble of coppery-brown curls that faded gently to sunny gold at her shoulders. When she saw me staring, she smiled shyly and stared back. Her smile pulled her eyes into slits that twinkled at me from between dark eyelashes. I looked at her, she looked at me, and she was beautiful. She showed her teeth like a little kid in a school picture, saucy, embarrassed, giddy, decades too young for her nice pants and sensible shoes.

i like alinor right now. it's mine though, you can't have it. ali, i can call her. and she can have a twin brother named leo(pold). except maybe it is mean to name someone leopold.

not ever?

Posted by: michele at July 9, 2004 03:57 PM

i don't know why i can't just make one comment anymore.

I like this multiple comment Michele. It tricks you into thinking there is some major exciting conversation string happening - and then it's all michele, being silly.

Dianna - what's with the no chilluns??? You're not barren too, are you? Cause we could start a club! Or are you just anti being preggers? Will you adopt??? No kids. This is nonsense! As one of very few boy/girl couples in our group of friends, I feel like you and Jacob are fairly obligated to produce the cuteness.

You've really outdone yourself this time. Not only have you commented four times in a row, you've also started World War I. At least you'll go down in history for more than ninja porn.

I don't know about ever. I'm not really planning on it. It's more of an adoption thing than a child-hating thing.

Anyway, Bella would get jealous. I don't think anyone wants to see Bella jealous.

i wore a cape and an eye patch and had theme music. it was pretty great.

I'm fascinated by the responses to this post, by the way. It's either intentional irrelevance or universal misinterpretation.

I got it, miss annaiD. (too bad there aren't HTML codes for backwards letters)

Posted by: Jacob at July 9, 2004 05:36 PM

Too bad indeed. So do you know where I saw her, then?

Posted by: Dianna at July 9, 2004 05:47 PM

the mirror! oooh, did i get it? did i get it?

p.s. did you mean by your comment that you *would* consider adoption? b/c i don't really care where the munchkin came from as long as someone in the group gets one. also, i think bella would realize the significance of such an event, and become the protector of the baby. that's what i think.

No babies, damnit! No babies! Go bother Kristen and Gene to make babies!

Yes, I meant that I'm unlikely to have babies myself because I'd rather adopt. But don't get your hopes up for munchkins by any method any time soon.

Mirror it is. I was making faces at myself in the bathroom mirror at work and suddenly realized I was pretending my reflection was another person entirely. Grow up? Where? When?

Whoa whoa whoa, head over to Ian and Tracy's blog, don't come to Kris and me.

Posted by: gene wood at July 10, 2004 12:56 AM

they have a new blog?

of course i knew it was a mirror. but it was also an image of what the fruit of your womb would be like. and also, at lunch, jolie and i had been discussing when/if you and jacob would start having kids, a scant 2 hours before you posted this blog. it was all just a little too coincidental for me to handle.

Posted by: michele at July 10, 2004 10:32 AM

Hey, I don't even know Ian and Tracy. I'm not telling people to go bother them about kids. All baby-related flak which comes to me will be redirected to the single other heterosexual couple I know, who, hey, just coincidentally happen to blog about their marriage fantasies all the time. Or at least one-half of the couple just happens to do so.

Really, you guys, cut it out. I don't want any wombs around here getting ideas from listening to you all.
