I was driving home from a late July session when one of my oldest friends popped up on my phone. I answered the call with a sneaking suspicion of what she was about to say...
"Get ready for a maternity session this fall!" she said. AHH! YES! I'd been waiting for this news for so long! I asked her a million questions and made her send me an ultrasound picture right after we hung up.
Megan and I have known each other since sixth grade — that's 15 YEARS' worth of sleepovers, birthday parties, beach trips, Mill Mountain coffee dates, long phone calls, shopping trips and a lot (like A LOT) of embarrassing moments. We've seen each other through hard weeks, awkward years, wedding days and now motherhood.
Megan and Brian — thank you so much for letting me freeze this time in your lives. Baby C is so lucky to have you as parents. If he's anything like you two, he'll be funny, smart, handsome and a loyal friend. I can't wait to meet him!
