Considering a number of various circumstances, I do not have my own children yet, but I absolutely adore my friends children and love to spoil them whenever I see them. I think about each of these babies often and love them each so much. I look forward to the day that Steve and I have our own children, but for the time being these babies will do just fine. In addition to the babies that are already in my life, I have quite a few friends that are expecting in the next few months. Namly, the Johnson's (Jenny & Nick) who will be having their little girl in the next week or so.
First, I would like to introduce you to my precious baby Ava, who is not much of a baby anymore. She'll be two in a month! I remember like it was yesterday when Galen called while Jamie and I were our sailing with Steve to tell us that she had been born. We popped a bottle of champagne and toasted the newest Blyth/Grout family member. Oftentimes, I'll call Meghan just to hear Ava say "Hi Coffey - I love you" (said in a very thick baby accent).
Next up, is my adorable little Taylor. I can't stand that she lives so far away, but I get my Taylor fix from the photos Jessica posts on her blog. Taylor will probably end up being a supermodel one day considering how thin and tall she she currently is. She's 'off the charts' (according to her doctors) on the in regards to her height for her age (turned one in April) and barely on the charts for her weight.
Not that any of these babies are any more special to me than the other, but baby Addison Claire (nickname: Addi) has an extra special place in my heart because she was born on my birthday. Definitely the best gift I ever could have received. I like to joke that when I turn 49, Megan and I will be in Vegas celebrating Addi's 21st birthday. Addi is one of the happiest babies I've ever met! Her favorite thing to do is push around a laundry basket like a walker. Next up, is the only little boy of the bunch, Tristan Martin. I wish so badly that he would grow up with the same wonderful British accent that his dad has, but unfortunately, that most likely won't be the case. When I see Tristan I think of a little man - he is very put-together (thanks to his wonderful mommy Lauren) and calm. In the upcoming months, I hope to plan some walking dates with his mom so I can spend more time with him. *Photos taken by Zach Anderson PhotographyAnd the youngest of the group, the second baby Addison (nickname: Addy). I've only been able to meet Addison twice and wish I could spend more time with her. I know it's a perfect excuse to make a trip to Longview. She is absolutely adorable and has amazing parents that I know will raise a wonderful daughter. I look forward to seeing her the next time Matt and Teresa make a trip up to Seattle.
