London, she did call...

Last night the wife and I went to the hospital to witness her best friend giving birth to her daughter. Tiffany, the mother in question, was born a few months apart from my wife and both have been friends since they were but wee lasses. So in keeping with tradition the stork decided the next generation shall be born with the same 90 day difference.

We arrive at the hospital only moments after London, the new baby, graced us with her presence. Seeing the new infant infected the wife and I with a dose of baby fever. The two year old sibling then overdosed us when he grabbed a stuffed doll and handed it to his newborn sister claiming how he picked it out himself and was his gift to her. Tiffany teared up a bit and there was not a dry eye in the place.

As the wife and I left the family to enjoy their new bundle of joy I looked down at her belly and thought about trying to talk Kenadie into hurrying up the whole process, or maybe preparing her for me getting a huge mallet and hammering her out of the womb. I guess I should just let nature take it's course.

Thank you for this. It really touched Tiffany and I reading it. You're both amazing friends to have and you both will make amazing parents.

Here's to many birthday parties, pony rides, indian princesses, and sitting at windows with shotguns in hand waiting for these little girls to come home some day.

Amazing how the two little ones will be born soooo close together!
