Taffi & Mark are dear, sweet friends of ours–we shot their wedding back in 2012, and we became fast friends. We don’t get to see them very often, but they are those friends where we can just pick up where we left off. Around Christmas of 2015, we were hanging out, and I told Taffi I was just barely pregnant with our second kiddo, probably due sometime in early September or late August. She had this huge grin on her face, and she just couldn’t keep it in any longer, so she told me they were expecting their first around the same time!

Turns out we were only two of at least half a dozen of my friends (and my sister!) who were pregnant at the same time, all due within months or weeks of each other. I wasn’t officially due until September 8 of last year, and Taffi was due August 28. Well, since my first kiddo was almost 3 weeks early, I figured I was probably having an August baby, too…and I was right. Lincoln entered the world in the early hours of Friday, August 26. Two days later, sweet Andi Mae was born on her due date. The two kids are practically birthday buddies, so we had to get a picture of the two together (third picture down) when Taffi and Mark brought Andi in for her newborn photos–they were both about 4 weeks old at the time. Apparently, Andi is now WALKING at 10 months, and Lincoln is pulling himself up on everything, but not quite ready to walk yet.

Welcome to the world, Andi Mae!
