No, I’m not officially back from maternity leave, but I had to post to share my mini session with my friend Beth and her husband Josh and son Holden.
Beth and I had gotten together a couple of times the week that Addison was born… both nine months pregnant, me two weeks overdue, and Beth just about at her due date… you can imagine our surprise when these two cuties ended up being born only a half hour apart, in the room next door! The doctor was going back and forth between both of our rooms as we were both pushing at the same time. Even more ironic since I had planned to give birth at a birth center a half hour away, but had to be transferred to that hospital late in the labor (I’ll spare you the details of the car ride at 9 centimeters dilated…!) Somehow the nurses figured out we were friends but because of HIPA they couldn’t tell us… they kept saying things like “I think you might have a friend here!” or “When you’re up and around you should take a walk around the floor and see who you run into!”
Beth is also a photographer– check out her blog-– and so we decided to get together to get some mommy and baby and family shots, since we can’t get those ourselves. These were taken on the babies three week birthday… too cute.
