Friendship in all Stages

There are a lot of great things about being pregnant the same time as one of your closest friends. This past weekend I got to celebrate my long-time bestie Lacey and her little girl on the way. Not to mention it was a double shower for her sister Cassie who's also pregnant, she's having a boy! Cassie is due in April, Lacey in May and me in June so I've already told them I expect daily text updates and as much information as possible. They'll have WEEKS of experience on me by the time my baby gets here ;)


I've known Lacey and her family since middle school so it was great to get together with all of them to celebrate two sweet babies. It's just such a special time and I was happy to help out in any way I could. Their mom is wonder woman, prepping for two grandbabies due within 5 weeks of each other; she threw the perfect combination shower for them and the food spread was absolutely delicious.

Lacey and her sister got SO MUCH and everything pint-sized is obviously adorable. I'm pretty confident that neither of their children will wear the same outfit twice in their entire first year of life. Goodness gracious, there were so many outfits!! Note to all moms-to-be, no need to register for clothes, ever. I have a few basics on our registries like white onesies, socks and a couple zippered sleepers but that's about it. I know the clothes will be flowing in, probably to the point where we run out of room for all of them ;) But I can't wait- nonetheless!

My friendship with Lacey is so special and I love that we've gone through so many stages of life together.

Awkward junior high years where we both liked the same gross boy in our science class...

High school fun at proms and homecomings and serving on student council together...


College visits and holiday breaks...

Bachelorette parties... Bridal showers...

Weddings...

And now getting to enter into motherhood together! I just can't express how much it means to me to have someone like Lacey in my corner. We've got each other's backs and we can talk openly and honestly about any topic in the entire world. I look forward to laughing our way through the craziness of motherhood together. She's my person. Love you, Lacey!!

  2. It really is so special to be pregnant at the same time as friends. I had a baby in October and many of my closest friends had babies last year between August and November. I'm so glad you have that too!

    I also love that the little cousins will be so close in age! Cousins as friends are awesome!

  6. It'll be so great to have kids close in age, it's hard to have friends with older/younger kids but kids the same age make for great playdates!

  8. Such a blessing! I have some good friends who had babies around me, and it's been really nice to have someone to say "are you doing...?" or whatever. HOWEVER, I will say (and this could totally be just me), but it is hard sometimes to have friends with babies so close in age because I find myself being like, Ah! Lincoln rolled over? Why isn't R rolling over? Molly is eating solids! We need to start R on solids. So just beware the beast :) I never thought I'd be "that" mom but the struggle is real. Also, Reese! Love it obviously.

  25. awwwww this is so amazing! i am always jealous of people who have had friends a long time, and gone through big life changes like this (or just growing up together). i've already told you no one will be pregnant with me, so i expect you to step up to the plate ;) but seriously, this is awesome.
