Everybody loves babies, right?

On the weekend, I had the pleasure of spending some time with a couple of SmallPeople, to whom I happen to be related. During the short fraction of the day that they spent sitting still (While they were eating, of course. Why else would you sit still when you're a baby?) I took the opportunity of snapping some shots.

This goes out to all my Lovely Lady friends with quivering wombs...

Baby J:

Baby M:

Awwwww. But remember: a baby is for life, not just for Christmas. Or something.

Afe - Shame on you! Babies are for life, not just for breakfast. If you must obtain something cute only to kill and feast upon it when you tire of it, that is what kittens are for.

Noooo! Babies are evil. Also, addictive.

Let me state for the record.
Anyone whose womb displays signs of actual quivering, please keep a distance of at least fifty metres from me, small children and the elderly.

Anyone who feels compelled to use any variation of the word "quiver" in the same sentence as "womb" needs to refrain from doing so at any future point.

Lili, Draik & Steph ~ At this point, I suggest look, quiver, even cuddle (other people's) but let's not leap into production just yet. There will be plenty of time for that (even you, Mr Wombless Draik - there are ways).

TimT ~ You are welcome to blatantly scatter your links any time - although the advertising is not necessary, since I stalk your blog anyway. Thanks for visiting!

Byron ~ You have an issue with the word "womb"; this is your issue and no-one else's. What it stems from, I'm not qualified to say, but I suggest you make peace with the fact that 50% of those around you are uterus-equipped (and not afraid to use them). Really, where would any of us be without wombs? We'd all just be sticky stains in someone's sheets. Hurrah for wombs!

I detest babies to be honest. Vile squirming, squealing shitting creatures. Once they learn to control their bowels, communicate in anything other than a burble or a cry, and develop a goddamn personality, then I can tolerate the little fuckers.

You have clearly spent little time around babies, Mr Watts, if you believe they don't have personalities.

But... each to their own.

While there may be ways, i do not believe they result in healthy situations for the child. Until sociecty changes and kids do not think it unusual for a child to have two mums or two dads, and therefore do not single them out for it, i shall never know a child of my own design. And i think it's fair to say my body will be sitting happily as a tree before that idyllic society will ever happen...

And babies have a shitload of personality, thank-you-very-much!

oh, and also... "womb"

Wow. I cannot even express how strongly I disagree with you.

When you say "do not ... result in healthy situations for the child", what exactly are you basing that on? How many such families/children have you known?

Every family is unusual in some way. Every child is going to be singled out in some way. Children will grow and thrive through any challenge, if they have strong, loving support around them - no matter what form of "family" that support happens to exist in.

It's about the love, Draik.

Yes, tell that the jewish kids of the holocaust. Have you read Night by Elie Weisel? Love does not conquer the burning pillars of adversity. Especially not where homophobia is these days.

and have I mentioned I have a *very* cynical mind?
