i had planned out everything i wanted to say and then got a mild case of amnesia...

for the baby shower i had planned out what i wanted to say about the parents-to-be to all the guests. it was all in my head because i played it over and over on our way up from virginia to new york. i had a few people help me get the attention of the room by tapping glasses with their forks and then i saw a bunch of eyes staring back. and little by little, i started getting a mild case of amnesia. (not really a fan of speaking in front of people...) 

but i think the gist of what i wanted to say was... 
i love you friend. you deserve all the happiness in the world. you're an amazing woman for persevering through this tough pregnancy with such strength and grace, and your husband is the calm at the center of a storm. it's so good to see you laugh and smile.

for all the times you've been there for me, here's a little happiness i planned for you.


and dear baby, 
we can't wait to meet you.
