A few weeks ago my bestie, partner in shopping crimes, roomie for many years, cousin and sister from another mister made me an auntie again! Julie and Kyle welcomed Abby into their lives a few weeks ago and instantly our whole family fell in love with baby Abby! The family has been preparing for Abby for months….Gramma sewing receiving blankets, Gramma Sue sewing nursery decor, Aunties Gina and Tracy filling up your closet and Stella helping by giving Auntie Juju name ideas 😉 I always joke that I have no advice and i’m not really any good help with babies….I just take pictures. But hey, that’s important too because the rest of my family only takes photos with iPhones!
There’s something really special about watching your best friend become a mom, Julie is such a natural. As soon as she told me she was pregnant I knew that she was going to be an amazing mom because she has always had the most kind and loving nature, she is the type of person who is always willing to do things for her family and friends. She has been preparing for this for years, always looking out for her younger brother Darrin and taking care of me when we lived together for many years….she taught me how to do laundry and clean, walked me around the university the day before my first day of school so I knew where to go and was always there to listen to me cry after a bad day.
We have walked together through hard times and happy times, been on so many shopping adventures, annual trips with our moms, family vacations together and now i’m so excited to watch her walk through mommyhood. Our shoptailing (shopping + cocktails) party of two just became a party of three! But no cocktails for Abby just yet! He he. I sure think the stroller will be convenient when we have a lot of bags to carry 😉
I could go on and on about how much I love Julie and how proud of her I am but we have pictures to get to! Meet Abby!!
