Moments Like These …
I received a text message Wednesday evening from my very dear and wonderful friend since the dawning of age, with the news that she was on her way to the hospital. Her contractions were 10 minutes apart. I had to say, I was a little disappointed for 2 reasons:
1. I was not going to be able go to the hospital as I did for baby #1. They don’t allow children to enter into certain areas. Of course, I am mother to a very special and loverable 7 year old boy, who is jointed at my hip. No baby sitter and it was school night.
2. I lost the pot. We took a poll at her Baby Shower held nearly two weeks ago, of each guest and when they thought she would actually deliver. Funny thing. Her due date was the 22. I said she was going to deliver on the 24Th (which so happens to be my sons birthdate). Didn’t happen. No way. That baby wanted OUT!!
I am pleased to announce the arrival of:
Jaiden Alexander Thomas
Born: Thursday, October 16, 2014 @ 1:05 AM
Weighing in @ 7 pounds 7 ounces (Perfect!)
When I spoke to Monique the very next day, she sound exhausted and relieved that she finally had her body back. She said that she had just finished feeding Jaiden but that he was up and checking things out a mile a minute. She wanted him to go to sleep.
For those of you who have been asking if I planned events other than weddings. Yes, I do! (No pun intended there) I had the absolute honor of planning Baby Shower #2, with the help of the family. In some of the photos you will see things like a Baby Book ( Guest Book, Dream Book, or Wish Book), chocolate lollipops, and the Invitation for the baby shower. All which were created by Dreams & Keepsakes. Also the cake, with the family photo on it was a very endearing touch(way to go Marion). Overall we had a blast!
Although weddings are our passion & speciality, we ultimately have a passion for planning all events. Our motto: “Where Planning is Everything”
