Baby Talk! [Yikes!]

First Time Baby Talk!!??!!
- Let me start off by saying Aaron has some family members in town! We met with everyone last night & had a Low Country Boil to catch up. His cousin, Ashley brought her two little girls!
We have one of those mini blow up jump things... Geez, I don't know what they are called. Anyway, I saw Aaron walking toward it as his cousin Garrett's little girl Mady was in there jumping around, playing basketball... I asked him why he was grinning? He responded with, " I'm gonna go in there and just lay down." Garrett and Aaron were both wearing black t-shirts! When he went in there... I heard "Daddy watch me!" Instantly, I smiled from ear to ear and got butterflies!
No, I am not ready for children, however it was really cool to hear it! Especially now that we are engaged. I don't know why that makes a difference, but it made it more real, I guess I don't know really.
Aaron looked right at me and smiled!
Sounded weird, didn't it? - He grinned again, and started playing with her!

[We are now back at our house]
Aaron is going camping/fishing with the guys this Saturday night, therefore he has been getting all this fishing stuff together for the past couple of nights. As he had it spread out on the floor, dealing with all that... I started on my Thank You Cards on the Cricut Machine. We were having a wonderful conversation talking about anything and everything. Randomly he said,
"It was pretty strange to hear Mady call me Daddy!"
"It was, but I think she thought you were Garrett..."
"Yeah, I know... It was just weird."
"I'd like to get pregnant & have a kid by next year."
"Ha! Seriously....?"
"Yeah, I think it's time..."
"Honey... Well.... [Speechless]"
"Well, I'd like to at least be married for a year or maybe even start trying LATE next year.... But actually popping a baby out next year... kinda freaks me out."
"Well if not next year, definitely the year after!"

-This seems so crazy to me! I always thought I'd be way ready before him. I mean geez, look how long it took to get him to pop the question. I thought it would be a few years before him ever saying that. AND a year ago, I was saying "If we were married, I'd be ready to have a baby"... However now that we are engaged and ready to wed, KNOWING we're getting married in 7 months and the next step is baby.... I don't think I'm 110% ready. NOT that it would be the end of my world, because it would not by no means!
Aaron just blew my mind out of the ball park last night!

He's ready to be called Daddy! That actually is pretty awesome!
The picture below melts my heart to pieces....

Thats such a sweet story & very special for you, Im sure. I can't wait to watch you blossom into wife & eventually a mamma. It's going to be so fun to read/see!

The Husband and I finally got a 'baby plan' in order. We will be married for a year in March. We are talking about trying to have our first babe by the time I'm 28 (in another 2 years eek!) and then our second by the time I'm 30. But I'm sure God is laughing at us for having a plan lol =)
Before we got married the Husband said the same things yours did - but he has enjoyed just being US that we have kinda put it on hold a little bit =)

That is so sweet! My husband and I had a deal, we would have our dog for a year and then start trying for a baby. That's where we're at now!

Awwww! I love reading your blog for so many reasons, but this is just to adorable! It reminds me some something similar that happened to me today. My fiance and I just decided on a date for our wedding last week. He was talking to one of his friends on the phone yesterday and heard his 2 little girls running around and playing in the background and they got on the topic of kids...

Today I get a text from his friends wife and she brings up kids in the convo.I am like you, I'm not ready for kids yet but I do want them. She tells me about the conversation between my man and hers and apparently MY man said that he wanted to have a kid within a year or so! I was like "whoa". So I immediately called him up and we talked about it. He wants to start trying within a year! It wouldn't be so bad, but I just wasn't considering it to be so soon! lol.

I guess we will both see how this pans out!

EEEKKKKK! Baby talk's interesting, I guess you could say. We have had this talk s.e.v.e.r.a.l times already. I feel the same way you do about it. Cliff {and Mr. Alan} is ready to pop one out any minute now and me on the otherhand, not soo much. I don't know why it is either, but it kinda freaks me out. Just the thought of us getting married in June and then being pregnant and having a baby before our first anniversary is scary in itself. I think we should at least have a year for just the two of us, thennnn we can talk baby stuff. Maybe...? ha.
