Jon and I have two great friends who are going to be having their first baby next week (hopefully, cross your fingers). I wanted to write a few things about my best friend Emily and let her know she is going to be the best mother ever!! I know we do not live nearby Chris and Emily anymore but they will always be close to us. Emily and I have been best friends since we were itty bitty. It feels like it was just yesterday we would go over to each other's houses and play house with our cabbage patch dolls. I cannot believe that those plays days have now turned into reality. Emily, we aren't playing dolls anymore!! You are going to be starting your own family in a matter of days!! We are both so excited for you guys!! It breaks my heart that I won't be there for when little Christopher is born but just know I will be thinking of you. We love you guys and wish you both the best of luck. And for everyone else reading this if you don't know my friends Chris and Emily just know that they are both special friends to Jon and I. We love you!!

Over the last few weeks I have been hearing too much about how it is to be pregnant, in labor, and the joys of motherhood. Because all of my friends seem to be having babies all at the same time it seems like I am the only one without a bundle of joy on the way. I have been to baby shower after baby shower every weekend for the last month. Everyone is having a baby!! Yesterday while at my friend Nicole's baby shower I sat with the pregnant girls and listened to them talk about the good and the bads of pregnancy!! I was quite entertained listening to the odd pains you get from pregnancy, to the crazy lady you become due to hormones. Wow, pregnancy and motherhood sure sound fun!! Yeah right! I love these girls to death that are having babies and I know that they are excited for their new addition to come in a few weeks. But being the only non pregnant one listening to the girls it made me reconsider being a mother so soon. I think Jon and I will continue to wait a few more years!! Ha Ha!! Sorry to those that are trying to get us to add a little Ellsworth!!
