The true miracle of conception

We all know that the conception of a baby is a miracle. But I am telling you the true miracle of conception is that it ever happens more than once! I am telling you babies have in innate sense. Even if there are no extracurricular activities planned, the moment your head hits the pillows (or worse, the moment you finally get comfortable) that alarm goes off and they are awake. The other obstacle is that babies are not stupid. They know that snuggling is way more fun than sleeping in a bed all by yourself (one more piece of evidence that we were created for fellowship with one another). Babies would so much rather sleep right next to someone where they can feel their warmth, heartbeat, and rhythmic breathing. This is THE most effective form of birth control. I cannot for the life of me figure out how people in other cultures (who all sleep in the bed together) ever add a fourth or a fifth or a sixth.Even if you did find the energy. I mean in our house you might as well have rerouted the Grand Canyon right through our bed. There is no cross to bridge this great divide. Too high.. can't go over it, too wide can't go around it. You might as well call it a night. Speaking of, its about midnight.

I am laughing with you, not at you! It's a miracle we had a second... only because Ben couldn't climb out of the crib yet. Now there's no hope... it's a full-sized bed for four.
