By the way, i'm celebrating new babies with friends despite the huge distance between me and Colorado. Carrie, a friend and mentor of mine just had her second child, Hailey Elizabeth Knoles four days ago!! What a joy she is - and looks so much like her ADORABLE big sister, Brooke! Yay!!
Two weeks ago one of my best friends, Nicole gave birth to her first child, a baby girl, Harper Grace Dow! That birth was very difficult for both Harper and Nicole and i am so grateful that they are home and healthy now. What a joy it is to see friends whom i've grown up with (remembering Nicole's mullet and Denae's umbro's as i type this) grow into beautiful mothers.
Wow, what a joy it must be to be a mother of such precious children, fathered by the men they love more than the world - i love seeing you ladies with your babies and your families - it is such a joy for me to celebrate with you!!!
