More Little Ones are Coming!

So, here's for a little flashback...

Three of my closest girlfriends and I, decided to get pregnant together in the Summer of 2006. (I stole these next two photos off my friend's blog). We thought it'd be better if we had the support of one another....boy, were we right!!!

All four babies were born within 2 months of each other....3 boys and 1 girl (Abbey).

Now we are in the middle of celebrating all of their one year birthdays! So fun!

Being a parent to Abbey has been the most incredible, rewarding experience of my life. She is just so amazing! I can't believe that it has been almost a year already since we've brought her home. We are so blessed to have her...and thank God every day!

Abbey's birthday is on March, I'll be sure to post photos when her party comes around.

Anyhow, the second wave has begun! Two more of the 'most awesome girls I know!' are pregnant and scheduled to deliver soon!

This is a photo of all of us (we started a Bible Study years ago...and have been together since!)...minus Tira (I can't find a picture with all of us! Is that terrible, or what?!?!) Anyhow, this is us at a Halloween Party in 2005, I think. Before kids...(Yes, Maressa is holding a doll...she REALLY wanted to have a baby! Ha ha!)

Jill, the blond in the top row, is due on March 12th. That's only three weeks away! AND....she's having a girl!
Wahoo! A little girlfriend for Abbey to play dress-up with. =)

She opted out of pregnancy photos...BUT, I'll be taking lots of her little one when she arrives, so stay tuned!

The second prego, is my friend Leah...due on April 1st (is that funny?). She is Eve in the photo above. The cool thing about Leah, is that she and her husband are 'doing it old fashion' and have no clue what they are having! Isn't that exciting! I don't think I could ever do that with my Type A personality...
...but I'm really excited for them! =)

She asked me to do photos the other day and I thought they came out really nice. So, I asked if I could share a few with you guys...

...doesn't she look amazing?!?!

I'm so excited for both of you ladies! Motherhood is such a gift! You're gonna LOVE it!

HI! I found your blog through your post this morning on mine (via the awesome David Baxter!!!) and wanted to comment on yours...I had a friend due within two days of me

These are beautiful! My two closest friends and I got pregnant around the same time and it was awesome! We could relate to each other on a totally different level. Motherhood is a beautiful thing!
