a little story...

i'll tell you a tale...

once upon a time, amanda and i were in a group of great girl friends in high school. we did a lot of crazy fun stuff like wear whip cream bikinis, go to florida, march in band, eat at red robin (a lot!), and more. when we graduated amanda when off to seattle and i to bellingham, but we stayed in touch - she even babysat my oldest daughter when she was a wittle baby. 

here, i have provided you with proof of said braces, jean jackets, and zits (i also, obviously, liked to tan, a lot), i mean that we were friends way back when we were practically newborns ourselves...
fast forward a few years and amanda and her high school sweetheart scott had reconnected and gotten married and tim and i were dating. not much later amanda found out she was pregnant with her first daughter ellie and a short while later, me with stella. it was weekly play dates, girls nights out, and coffee dates from there on out.
in march this year we both found out that we were expecting again the same week, both due on november 17th! eventually my due date was moved up a week, but how crazy is that? liam and robin were born three and a half weeks apart and i can imagine are going to grow up and be the best of friends!

there isn't another person on the planet i would have wanted to have this crazy fun journey with! how cute are these boys?
