Baby faces

While in Louisville I got the opportunity to meet up with some of my friends that all had babies in April. It was such a delight to be able to see these new lives so soon after they has entered the world and most of all to get to hold and snuggle with them. This is truly the first time one or more of my friends have had new babies at a time that I do not. Generally I do not get to enjoy them in the manner that I most love since I would have a baby of my own in my arms. Thank you ladies for letting me love on your precious babies!

Here is little Benjamin, who is my friend Terra's first son. Isn't he so precious?

And here is a little boy I was super excited to meet, Shepherd! He is the first born of my original community group leaders Maggie and Dave. I have had the pleasure of calling them friends for a little over three years and have been looking forward to the day when they would become parents.

So while all the babies I got to love on are precious, this little boy holds a special place in my heart, even if Maggie and Dave didn't know that until reading this :)

And although he may not be a baby any more, here is Malachi, a little boy I love as my own, being a goof ball. Oh, and his mom and my bestie Rebekah too :)

Well, shame on me for not checking your blog until now (can I still blame it on having a new baby even though he's almost 2 months old)! What a sweet message, Meaghan! We are so thankful for you and your family and we loved getting to see you too. I feel more prepared for motherhood for having known you and watched you mother your boys. Thank you for investing so much in my life.

BTW, you failed to mention that the lovely sling in the picture was a product of your creativity. Don't be modest!

Love you,
Shep's mom :)
