Going back in time a bit, here’s one of my dearest friends, Amy, holding Jocelyn a couple weeks ago.
She’s expecting her first baby this winter (YIPPEE!) so I’m OVER THE MOON thrilled that our babies will be so close in age. Yes, I’m already fantasizing about our kid’s lives together. If she has a boy, I’m dreaming that they will fall in love and get married. (But not until after college and they have both traveled the world on their own.) If she has a girl, I dream that they will be BFF’s too and the four of us can have movie nights, snuggling up in our jammies eating popcorn while watching The Parent Trap. (Actually, Amy, how’s next weekend sound to do just that? Anybody else want to join us?)
Regardless of whether our kids get along, I’m so excited that I get to raise my kids alongside Amy. She has been there for me through some of the biggest challenges of my life so I know it will be awesome to walk alongside her as we navigate this crazy thing called parenthood.
First things first, I need her to move back to Fort Wayne! Oh and yes, I’m already dreaming up her baby shower in my head. Stay tuned for those photos later this fall.
