the annual bdr in chicago last weekend was great. it was a little strange not having all 8 of us there, as we kept getting off on our head count and feeling like peps were left behind (tiff and marne we missed having you). the 2 babies were a new addition to the group and were just amazing. i'm in love, and i think lil' pearson was too. the girls threw me a surprise shower for the lil' guy with such fun decorations, cake, gifts and advice. my favorite was beaded chain they made, in which they each gave a bead and a piece of advice and wishes for strength through the birthing process, thoughts on parenting, and overall support.
it's amazing to have friends like this.
