When I was pregnant almost six years ago, six other friends of mine were pregnant too. It was a great fun experience. We didn’t planned but boom! “We drank the same water”! Imagine how much seven pregnant ladies had to share! Our expectations… Baby names, nursery colors, the latest “baby trends”, and of course, all the cravings!
We then met every week at another friend’s house. She was not preggo at the time, but because of her we were taken care of. With the promise that she was planning a baby for the next year, and wanting to live together all our crazy stories and laughter, she cooked for us with a smile on her face. Every week. From all kind of soups – chili included – to the most amazing brazilian recipes. (okay. I blame her all 50lbs I gained during pregnancy! haha)
“Baby next year” came four years later; and now is her time. Time for her to feel the kicks from within instead of only touching a friend’s big belly. Time for her to fold little clothes, choose a pastel color for the nursery walls, buy tons of moisturized wipes. Time for her to dream about the day she will finally see his perfect little face. Time for her to hold the breath and get ready for the most amazing journey of a woman. The time of her life. And I am glad, happy, excited to see these moments unfolding!
Well, I won’t promise I will cook for her – she better off without it anyway! – but I will promise I will be here.
Now, before tears roll, let’s get to the pictures that reflect perfectly this couple we learned to love. Be happy, my friends! God bless!
