One of the greatest privileges I’ve had in the past 27 years is to share life with my dear friend, Andi. We went to camp together, gymnastics together, elementary school together, worked together, went to college together (and might I add our moms were college roomies too). And on top of that we’ve laughed together, danced together, sang together, and of course cried together. While we didn’t get married at the same time, we most recently have had the opportunity to share pregnancy together and now motherhood together just like our mom’s did.
I still remember just an hour after I had Levi, I came out of the bathroom at the hospital to find her and her mom there welcoming our newest addition on her short lunch break from work. In the fall, Andi and her husband discovered they would be having a little girl right around the same time I found out I was pregnant. What joy and excitement the past months have brought as I found out we would be having a girl as well and the two of us would have the blessing of sharing this time together.
A day shy of February, Andi and Chris welcomed little Savannah Rose with great expectation and love. I was sick at the time and spent the first week of Savannah’s life unable to hold her, confined to wearing one of those hospital masks that silently screams “stay far away from me.” I was able to grab a few shots of Savannah during her first days of life and later of the sweet little family. Savannah Rose, I cannot wait to see what the Lord has in store for you in the months and years to come. Your are such a blessing to so many already and you don’t even know it. I can’t wait till you have a little friend in June.
And of course one with my little man. He adores her…sometimes a little too much.
