Jude's Bestie

There has never been a decent picture of the two of us.

Stacey has been my friend since 7th grade. We met a few weeks into the school year, and that very day we pushed our desks together and started scheming. We were going to build a go-cart and bake a 6 tier cake. We bought candy by the bagful and ate in class, hopped hay bails and flew kites all summer...blew up 3 bags of water balloons and released them on the neighbor's lawn, and nearly burnt down his bush while roasting marshmallows.

When I called her to tell her that I was pregnant, she simply said: "Funny you should say that, because I was just at the doctor, and..."

And now, she has a little boy to play with my little boy.

I wonder what kind of mischief they will get into together.

I can't wait to find out.

* Doesn't it look like we somehow switched babies? I always thought that if I had a child, my child would be blonde and blue eyed, and that she would have the dark, swarthy child. Go figure.

How wonderful that you and your best friend from school both have babies who can grow up together now!

:) Those pics remind me of me and my sister and our daughters. Her daughter was dark haired and blue eyed while mine was blond with brown eyes. You could have easily switched children and made it make more sense. (My sister is red-headed with freckles and pale skinned. I have dark hair, blue eyes and olive skin.)
