One of the really helpful things that I had when I got pregnant were the friends around me who encouraged me with their support and enthusiasm. I learned so much from friends who were experienced in the ways of the pregnant/motherhood life, but I also got so much love from ladies like Laura, who wasn’t yet a mama, but had so much love in her heart for all babies and children. Her genuine love for little ones is contagious and I definitely caught some of what she had during my pregnancy by just being around her.  Her encouragement for me and excitement for the baby to come was a huge help in helping me feel at peace, and I am so happy that she was a part of my life when I became pregnant with Sloane. 

We were all obviously thrilled to learn about the news of her little one and we got to celebrate the baby with a shower this past weekend.  I love and respect this lady a ton and I cannot wait to see how all of her wonderfulness is going to translate into motherhood.

Here are some photos from the shower, thrown by the lovely ladies, Martha and Elise:

These ladies inspire me:

We love you Laura!
