February 5th - the day of great babies!!!

So, not one, but TWO of my very best friends are probably going to have their babies this Thursday.  

Megan Kathleen Kelly-DeShazo is being induced on Thursday early in the morning.  I am so excited to meet little Gabe.  I bet Megan is too (after 41 weeks of pregnancy).  Megan is going to be such a great mom.  She was a fabulous roommate to me in college.  We were each other's place of solace much of the time when it got dramatic in the house.  We shared everything (whether she wanted to or not).  And we were there through men galore, and the early days of the ones who stuck.  I love her so much.  She is quick to laugh . . . and she has many days of laughter ahead.  

Jennifer Renee David-Sanders is being induced on Wednesday evening.  It's extra-exciting not knowing if she is having a little boy or a little girl (but I will love Asher or Charis equally, whichever gender he/she may be).  Her due date was yesterday, and her heart (and belly) is heavy that this child hasn't come yet.  Oh, but that baby will be here soooo soon.  Jennie is probably my favorite person to spend time with.  I wish she lived next door . . . but no, she lives in Tulsa.  She cracks me up, and for some reason, she is likewise entertained by me.  She is up for anything.  One of the many reasons I love this woman is because I imagine that she is very much like my mother was like when she was younger.

I am SOOOO excited for both of these women.  They are going to love being moms, and they are going to be so good at it.  Luckily, they both have great partners who are going to be such great dads too.  Good luck friends!  I'm going to be thinking about you and praying for you ALL week

How funny that Baby DeShazo and Baby Sanders will share a birthday! I 'm so excited for Jennie and Andrew and very much share in her anxious heart and heavy belly.

A friend of ours who is pregnant with a girl mentioned that Gabe could be boyfriend/girlfriend. And I let her know, "I'm sorry, but Gabe has already been promised to another." He is already so loyal. (almost too loyal, like the fact that he is still attached to his mother's umbilical cord. I'm just sayin'.)
