A few years ago 2 of our friends got engaged and married. Then began a 2 year run of all of our friends getting married. We seriously had about 10-15 weddings each year and every weekend was spent at a shower, wedding, or tea. It was crazy!
Now that everyone is married, it seems that baby fever has now hit our group of friends. It is bittersweet in a way because though I am super excited for my pregnant friends and new mothers, I am sad that the days of partying and traveling with friends may be winding down. I guess you can't be 21 forever.
After meeting baby Zander this weekend I have gotten more and more excited about my friends and the experiences that they soon will have once their children are born. I want to be a big part of their lives and hope that one day our children will be best friends as their parents (we) are.
I look forward to weekends meeting up and watching the children playing together while we all catch up. I know that though this will be a new change in our lives, but it will be a wonderful one. Just because people have babies doesn't mean they still can't have fun and do things, it will just be a bit different. I guess this is just a part of growing up.

So to my new mother friends, I just want you to know how happy I am for you and for my mother-to-be friends, how excited I feel for you!
And don't worry, we still have several friends who aren't pregnant or trying anytime soon, so I still have a few partners in crime. At least for now....
