Today I have a very special sneak peek to share. This gorgeous mamma and I have been friends since the first or second grade. Our friendship has survived despite my family moving across several states in the middle of my fifth grade year. We’ve been through a great deal together. Despite the long miles and – between our busy lives – often lack of communication, we are still the best of friends. I was thrilled to get the news she and her equally awesome husband were expecting a new baby. And now there’s four in their beautiful family!
Little L was born on my birthday! How awesome is that? I tell ya, just the best birthday present ever for me! She was 6 weeks new when I finally got to meet her, just before Thanksgiving. We took about 30 minutes out of our day of visiting to capture a few quick family photos. I focused on the realness of the moments – Baby L fussing and all. It’s all part and parcel after all. She is just the sweetest baby girl, and her big sister is simply amazing with her. I wish our visit could have been longer.
Little L, I am so so happy that you are here. You are one loved little girl. Your big sister will watch out for you and be teaching you how to paint your nails before we all know it. Stay sweet. I can’t wait to see you and your family again. Love to you all.
And here are a few of my favorite images. Enjoy!
