It was at a really young age that I knew I wanted to be a mommy. As I got older, I knew that soon out of college, soon after I was married that I wanted to have kids. I wanted to be in my early twenties. Maybe because my mom was 25 when she had me (as I was when my daughter was born!), maybe because I had no aspirations of being a big business woman, lawyer, etc. I have a couple of friends who were the opposite. My friend Lindsay, being one of them. I think she had said no kids before 35. There was vet school to come, traveling, living different places, and a few other things. When she called me 6 months ago and said she was having a baby, I almost fell off my bed! I love when my friends have kids! I get to throw showers, pick out gifts, and then of course hold those precious little ones. The best part about this announcement was that she was thrilled, even if it was 4 years earlier than planned!
Over the next few weeks we threw around dates for her shower so I could make the drive 3.5 hours and be able to take her maternity photos. Last weekend, the time finally came! I hadn’t seen Linds since my little man was teeny tiny, and we were thrilled to see each other again. We got up before the sun Saturday because we both love silhouette photos. And did I mention……I got to try something totally new….adding a horse into the mix! It was amazing!
Here are a few of my favorites….
