I didn't want to cramp her style

Wednesday, April 22, 2009

By announcing it first, but my very fabulous friend AJ welcomed her baby boy on Saturday!

Unfortunately he was quite the sleeper at the hospital . . . and not so much now at home. :( I only feel a little bit badly for AJ in that regards, because boy did she ever luck out on her labor and delivery!

Not only did the girl manage a completely med free waterbirth, the whole thing from start to finish was only 5 hours! 5 hours!

In addition to that, he's the cutest little baby boy ever {well, until you know when. :) Love you AJ}

For the record, AJ was just a bit over 1 1/2 weeks ahead of me. We were in this together, from the beginning. Lamenting every pregnancy twinge, weight gain and odd thought in our heads. And now, she's a Mom. And I'm pregnant. And this is going to happen. Soon.

He is a cute baby! And how exciting that your babies are only going to be a couple days apart. Future best friends.

Awww, how precious! I hope your labor and delivery is just as quick and smooth, if not more!!! :)

Can't wait to see pics of Baby Bless (and also find out what his name is). Unless of course, Baby Bless sticks. ;)

Oh my goodness, how cute and exciting! How wonderful is it that you had a friend going through your pregnancy with you?! I bet you are excited, anxious and a little scared. It must be nice to have someone to pretty much know exactly what you are feeling. I hope your birth goes just as well as AJ's did.
