Those baby thrills are something all their own. You hope they'll look a smidgen like you with eyes like your love; you plan out little outfits and bonnets (oohhh the bonnets these days) and find space for a crib and rocking chair, and you wait. You wait to see their little faces, to hear their little voices, you wait to give them your whole heart and then some.
You can usually tell the people that are going to make great parents pretty quickly. There are three things that tend to clinch it: a good giving heart, a level head, and allll the humor on the planet. They're three for three.
