Happy Birthday, N!

I would like you all to meet one of my two best friends, N. N and I have know each other for 20 years now and were friends from the moment we met. We met up north, spent all our summers together, went to the same college, and rushed the same sorority. She is definitely my calm in the storm and my sanity. She's so level headed, she always has great advice, and she is an excellent listener. She's also a great shopper (she gets it from her mom) and a great gift giver. All in all, someone that everyone loves to be friends with.
N is with her husband in the first picture. They've been married for 7 years and this last year had identical twin boys! These baby boys were born at 27 and 1/7 weeks, and for anyone who knows anything about pregnancies or NICUs, this is very, very early. It was incredibly scary for them, their families, and all of us who are close to them. Through the grace of God, they are happy, healthy, and developmentally appropriate babies with no problems at all. It was a really long road to get to this point, but they are now standing on their own and babbling up a storm. B and I got to see them at Thanksgiving and probably won't see them again until the summer. N lives 5 hrs from Chicago, so our numerous phone calls have to tide us over between visits! It's hard, especially now that the boys are around. I hate missing out on so much.
N already received her gift in the mail and loved it! I got her adorable Lilly pjs- pink, green, and too cute! Happy birthday, N!! I miss you tremendously!!


  1. Yowza - 27 weeks. My 2nd baby was born at 30 weeks and spent 5 weeks in the NICU. I can only imagine her worry during that time. Good friends help you through so much!

  2. Wow! That is really early. What strong little boys to pull through. I bet your friends really appreciated you help them get through that tough time.
    What a great friend you are, Lilly PJ's!!
    Thanks for dropping by my blog today! :)
