I have to reminisce a little on this one. This session is significant and personal. Brett is my friend Amanda’s little boy. Amanda is one of my best friends. We met at Eastern our junior year of college when we joined a sorority. We have shared many laughs and many tears over the years. We held each other’s hands through break ups, loss of family and shared tears of joy when we found love and got married. When my daughter was born, she was there again to share my joy.
Well, nearly a decade after meeting, we found out we were sharing a pregnancy. Crazy, huh?! What an amazing thing, really. We found out we would both be having boys and, ultimately, they ended up being 2 days apart in age. It has been wonderful sharing our little boys, getting them together, and talking about their progress. Every Wednesday, we catch up over the phone. I look forward to these days because we share conversations of daily life, upcoming events, seek advice and sometimes we literally have nothing exciting to say. It’s always great no matter what.
Now, Amanda & her husband Jerry are expecting a little girl in October. Obviously, I cannot wait to meet her! She is an amazing mother, an amazing friend and an amazing wife. Amanda has always been there for me and I look forward to the next decade of shared memories, laughs, and having a friend who will be there when I need a shoulder to cry on.
Of course I was delighted to do Brett’s one year photos and we had a great time (I never expected otherwise)! I would say the Cake Smash was also a success!! Happy Birthday, Brett!! You’re one awesome little dude!
Love you guys!
And here are the boys:
