Twenty-four years ago I had a pesky little brother. Twenty-four years ago she had two pesky older brothers. When we moved next door to her family we both found that perfect little friend in each other. One that would play barbies without having to blow them up. We entered kindergarten together and finished HS together. She went to college, I got a job. We still remained close friends.
I feel like I had some years of going rogue, living an hour away and with a bf she didn’t quite care for made staying super close a little difficult. But as they say, boys come and go but our friendship has remained strong throughout whatever came our way.
She got married in “08, I was maid-of-honor. I love her and her DH. They had already been together since HS so wanting a baby was quickly on their minds after marriage.
However, we now know that God’s timing didn’t quite match up with theirs. On April 3, 2012 they were finally blessed with their first baby, a girl named Tinsley. She has rocked their world in the best of ways!!
I love how a tiny little newborn who wants nothing more than to eat and sleep can come into a house and run it better than any high ranked military official. haha
I could not wait to get her in front of my camera!!! She was 7 days new when she had her first photo shoot.
(yes there will be a zillion more in her future)
Disclaimer: the above two shots are composites. mom’s hands NEVER left baby. please do not try letting baby hold itself up!
I had never successfully gained that pose before and told my friend if I got nothing else I was getting this shot!!! Luckily for me Tinsley was deep asleep and let us pose her, aahhhhh sigh of relief and accomplishment!! haha
The words do not exist for how happy I am for my friend. These past nearly 2 months of watching Tinsley grow have been amazing. We will be face-timing like crazy for the weeks that I’m up north! She’s going to practically be a new baby by the time I come back 😦 And she’ll be ready for her next photo shoot!
