CaseyLand: a different kind of hunger from two days ago.

a different kind of hunger from two days ago.

Here it is: I love babies.

I do.

After Alex and I talked about marriage the first time, I went home, and read a blog. It had a video of a small, dancing baby. The baby was in his own little world, cha-cha-ing and samba-ing, and waltzing with the best of them. Ok, not really. It was more of a bum wiggle that was even BETTER than the professional dancers of our time.

I burst into tears.

I mean, I literally saw that wiggle-jiggle baby and burst into uncontrollable tears. It was so beautiful.

The fact that I could actually have my own dancing baby someday!

I'm getting teary just thinking about it.

And so now is the part where I tell you that I have to daily remind myself - not yet, Madeline. Not yet. Wait until you can wiggle-jiggle with the baby at home. Just wait. Your time will come.

So here is a picture of me cuddling my friend Jenna's baby, Listen.  You can tell she has strong feelings about me.

And a picture of me as a baby, just so we call all know what to expect when the time does come. (And my gorgeous Aunt Andrea makes a guest appearance!)

p.s. i know this randomly posted yesterday and then i took it down. i also know that this was frustrating to some people. to those people i say... patience is a virtue.


  1. Your aunt IS gorgeous! And you were such a cute little baby! You've got a model-y look in your eye. I think Tyra Banks calls them "smeyes." Oh yes. You've got the smeyes alright.
    I'm so glad that you love babies so much! I feel so sad because it seems like a lot of people don't want any when they "grow up." Babies are so wonderful and beautiful and fill you right up with love. I love being a mom!
