With a friend

Getting married later in life means that more often than not the friends you've had most of your life have already had their children. At least, that's been true for me.

Except for my friend Kris.

She and her husband tried to have a baby for 12 years (!), and then this little doll baby came around.




I married about a year after this baby girl was born and almost immediately Kris and I began to hope that we would be pregnant at the same time.

Well, we are. She's about 5 weeks ahead of me...although you'd never know it from our size.



It's great being pregnant with a friend, and especially one who is my age. Kris will be 40 in just a couple weeks (although she looks 15) and can empathize with the saying I've now coined when someone asks how I am: I'm old and pregnant...

(I usually only respond that way with good friends as I don't want to appear to be complaining. I'm so grateful to be pregnant...and now that all the WWW has heard how I feel, well...perhaps you can all consider yourselves my good friends.)

So, I just want to say how thankful I am to be pregnant with my good friend. It's fun to consider names together, to crave the same foods, we even go to the same doctor! I'm just so grateful.
