Baby Bestie

I can't tell you how much I love this lady and her husband.

And now her baby.
Her baby BOY.

How often do you get to live in a big world class city with your best friend?  Meeting in cafes, walking down Michigan Ave, popping into one another's apartments just for hugs & talks.  Giggling over cupcakes, shopping together, & cuddling up in one another's living rooms while watching chick flicks?  Then there's also the 4am wake up call watching Prince William & Kate get married.  This and a thousand other memories have been my life with Ashley the last 4 years and I wouldn't trade it for anything.

This day we went up to her & Neal's special spot to surprise her family with the news of the baby's gender!

It was freezing cold.
It was beautiful.
It was memorable.

Her due date is just four days before Eliana's birthday.  They'll be exactly 1 year apart.  I cannot think of anything more perfect.  They'll be besties- just like us.

I love you Ethel.
