I have had the distinct priviledge of sharing parts of our life with you. And you all have no idea how encouraging it is to hear your comments when it comes to photography or renovations or even when it comes to sharing the everyday humdrum. I also have the honor of giving you a little insight into my friends and families lives…which can be a little hairy at times (yes, I now hear…PROMISE THIS WON’T GO ON THE BLOG…or…DON’T YOU POST THIS PHOTO!….from people quite often) but I also know that your comments worm their way into the hearts of my nearest and dearest and they appreciate them too. I am saying this all because I feel like this post is kinda a coming of age.
Let me explain.
You all know my friend Julia. She sang at our wedding. Then I posted about her own wedding ages ago. There was a time we took a mini vacation together with other friends. I have talked about how she threw parties, and even a baby shower for me and shopped with me, and how we all got pregnant together. (not together mind you…just at the same time-ish). Heck, I’ve even divulged her maternity photos, her delivery plans and the baby shower I threw for her. There is very little that you don’t know about this girl.
And then this weekend happened.
Her little boy was born. Ethan William Anderson.
And now it feels like this blog is not just a glimpse into my life but into those whom I love. And I get to share this with you. whom I also have fallen for 🙂
So without further adieu, let me show you some of the photos I was able to snap this past weekend while I wasn’t oohing and awwing over this little guy.
Her water broke on Saturday night at 3 in the morning. I guess that is technically Sunday morning but whatever. Ethan was born at 2:37 in the afternoon after only about thirty minutes of pushing. He weighed in at 7 pounds and 10 ounces and was super cute. I guess he was even cuter to me because I never got to hold a seven pounder before. Well…I guess I did. That’s probably how much Will weighed in the second trimester 🙂 Note to self – do not eat pork willynilly during next pregnancy.
I am so happy for Jules and Jade. It’s amazing how much joy I can have for someone else. And unbelievable how much I already love someone elses child. And I am constantly reminded to thank God for all the beautiful and healthy people in my life…that includes you, little Ethan! And yes, it’s okay to say that you hate Julia for looking so dang good after giving birth. I know I did.
