Because of the wonderful thing that is FACEBOOK, I've been able to reconnect and stay connected with so many old friends. One being my friend Lauren.
Lauren was a close friend all throughout my childhood in Charleston, she was at every single one of my themed Birthday Parties and we were also both home schooled. I lost touch with her after moving to NC and was so happy to reconnect with her.
Lauren has had the most crazy year of anyone I've ever heard of. She got married to a guy from Alaska in May 2008, they had their first kiss at the altar! On their honeymoon they made a baby. She moved to Alaska. That baby was born 3 months early. Baby Tait was in the NICU for 3 months. Upon coming home from the NICU, Lauren found out she was pregnant again! She is now about four months pregnant with their second baby. They are going to fill their home with children:-) That's a pretty full year. The babies will be less than a year apart!
Lauren and I were about the same distance in our pregnancies. I was a little further along than her. It was so crazy to me when I heard she had delivered so early. God was so good and Tait is a very healthy little boy now. Go here to see pictures of him when he was born or if you'd like to help out with some of the very high bills they have from 3 months in the NICU. Barclay was actually born on Tait's due date!
Anyhow, Lauren flew with her little baby Tait and her husband Tait to Charleston and I was able to stop in for a quick visit.
Do know that we awoke poor little Tait from his nap and he wasn't happy about it at all.
Hehehe those are some CHUBBY babies!:-) Just how I like them!
Their mouths are doing the same thing here.
The mama's and the babies. Poor Tait! He was hungry!
Isn't Lauren just glowing? And it isn't just the pregnancy. She's always been like that.
I'm so glad that I got to see Lauren and her little family and am looking forward to many more years of friendship with her.
