So, Miss Jen and I were destined to be friends. God totally had a divine purpose for us meeting at Grace Church here in San Diego. Little did we know that approximately a year later, we'd be having little girls only days apart from each other that would actually turn out to be...well, twins.
It's amazing really.
It's amazing how God knows exactly what you need...before you even realize that you need it.
Well, I needed a friend like Jen...for more reasons than her rad ability to bargain shop and still look like a million bucks--seriously...she's incredible in this area!
I needed her shoulder to cry on...or sleep on...when Abbey would wake up 10 times in the middle of the night for 13 months in a row, and she needed my shoulder when Julia would cry inconsolably for 4 hours straight, or more, every stinkin' evening.
We'd have dinner dates and listen to the girls wail. We understood each other's dark circles and nonsensical talk. It was awesome.
Though I'm still recovering from Abbey's first year and a half of existence...my amazing friend Jen as regained her strength, gathered her courage, and has exhibited much bravery...
Meet Joaquin Daniel.
As you can see from the above image...she is also extremely talented in the 'interior' design department. Yes, that is Joaquin's room. So adorable!
Julia loves her little brother...
When she's not famished! :) ha ha!!!
I absolutely love this image of Jen and her little man...such a sweet moment.
AND...my favorite from the day. How adorable is this little bundle???
Meeting Joaquin has made it not so scary of a thought to have another...so maybe we'll try--
--in 9 years, instead of 10. ;)
