I have been waiting for this baby since Jenny told me she was pregnant, and gosh it felt like I waited way longer than nine months. I wonder how long it felt for Jenny? Of course Jenny and Tim found out what the baby was before hand...planning, you know. And of course they wouldn't tell us her name so I named Jenny's baby belly my two favorite girl names. Stella Isabella. Apparently it stuck with more than just Laurie and me, Jenny's family started using it too. It's catchy! Then I nicknamed Stella Isabella's nickname and just called her SID. Anyway, I've been waiting for this baby for a long time.
Jenny and I got to walk through major life changes together, she having a baby and me getting married. In the end they happened to coincide about two days apart. The fact that we were both expanding our families gave us a special bond that we could talk about every time we were together. She gave me lots of marriage advice, I gave her lots of baby advice (I don't know how great my advice was since I've never had a baby, but, I must say, there is constantly a baby in my family to practice on). I loved getting to share this time with you, Jenny (and Tim) and I think your baby is precious!!!! Thank you for letting me photograph her and I hope you enjoy these photos!
