An ECU Easter Weekend

Dear Pickles,

Your mommy had a wonderful visit with her ECU friends this Easter weekend.  Your Auntie Angela organized a reunion with our dear friend, Emily, and her two sons, Phoenix and Kingston.  We all met in college and have been friends ever since.  We have been in each other's weddings, have traveled with each other to places near and far, and now, I will be sharing the joys of motherhood with them.

Emily came up from Georgia and brought her sister, Megan, with her to help with the boys.  Angela came later with Zora, and everyone stayed at our house for the weekend.  They came to throw you an ECU Baby Sprinkle.  We chatted, went Easter egg hunting, napped, and joined some of our other ECU friends for a lovely dinner at Twisted Fork. It was nice to catch up and spend time with one another.  No matter how much time passes between our visits, it's funny how when you get together with old friends how easily you are able to pick up right where you left off.  (I hope you have friends like that one day.)

As a new mommy, it was nice for me to see how mommyhood has changed Emily and Angela.  I was able to see a new side of them that was beautified by the way they have raised their children.  They have different approaches, but both have raised beautiful, well adjusted, happy children.  I hope you know how much I want to do just that for you.

In less than two months, you'll be here to join this happy group of children one day as I am sure this will not be our last visit.

31 Weeks - Not much longer to go!

One day you'll get to meet the women who helped to shape your mommy into the person she is today.  They have stood by me and have offered nothing but their support and friendship.  What more can a girl ask for?
