A few years ago I started noticing a trend in my life – people were having babies. Every few months I would get a birth announcement in the mail, a group text from an acquaintance or open Facebook to find a well-staged photo of a line of large, medium and small shoes usually attached to a cheesy tagline – “and then there were three…”
Facebook became a baby lookbook I could not escape.
“Silently, one by one, in the infinite meadows of heaven,
Blossomed the lovely stars, the forget-me-nots of the angels.”
― Henry Wadsworth Longfellow, Evangeline: A Tale of Acadie
