In about 7 months, Leah is going to have a friend!!!

No, not a sibling; I am not - and do not intend to be - pregnant.  I'm definitely enjoying my baby's babyhood.

But I am ridiculously excited to get to share the incredible experience of motherhood with my best friend, Jessica, who is expecting in May.

Auntie Jessica,

You are on the most incredible adventure of your life!  Your caring and compassion, your generosity, selflessness, humor, and above all, your great capacity to love make you an amazing mother to your little gummy bear already.

Thank you for the many ways in which you have supported and loved me.

Thank you for the laughter and wonderful memories. 

Thank you for listening to me cry, for sharing my joys, for our many work out and coffee Thursdays.  Thank you for dying your hair with me just because we could. 

Thank you for being a wonderful Auntie!  Thank you for visiting us when we didn't really want to leave the house.  Thank you for understanding when we were too tired to visit.  Thank you for loving our little girl to pieces.

Above all, thank you for being my friend.  My life has been so blessed to have you in it, and I cannot wait to watch you take on this wonderful new role in your own life.  You will be an absolutely amazing mommy!!!!!!!

We love you, Andrew, and Baby too!

We've come a long way together, my friend!  Here's to many, many more!!!!
