{Three} Cheers for Friday!

Happy Friday! A few {three} highlights from the goings-on in my little world...

One: Donovan Max Miller

One of my oldest, dearest friends {see some pics from her wedding here} gave birth to this sweet baby boy on Tuesday, April 28. He made his debut exactly two weeks early, and he and his momma are doing well. I am in love with his name, which happens to be his momma's maiden name.  Welcome to the world, Donovan...I can't wait to meet you!

Donovan Max Miller
Born to Lindsay and Brandon Miller on
April 28, 2015 at 7:26 AM
6 lbs., 7 oz. and 18.5" long

Perfect little family of three!

Although we live 1,585 miles apart, it's pretty special to me that Lindsay and I were able to go through part of our pregnancies together. Not only have Lindsay and I been lifelong friends, but our younger brothers are friends and our moms are BFFs. I guess that's the true definition of family friends! Lindsay and I have always made it a point to stay in touch and get together when we're both back home in Kansas for a weekend or holiday.  I have no doubt that having little midgets so close in age will only strengthen our friendship...it's nice to have someone going through the same thing at the same time!


Congratulations, Miller Family!


I'm so very happy for you and can't wait to see all of you {hopefully} this fall! 




Two: Max Reads {or memorizes}

Speaking of babies...for Easter I gave lil' midget Max a book about getting a baby sister, and he's been reading it with his parents every night since then. Rachael {Max's momma} is scheduled for a c-section next Tuesday, so hopefully he's ready for his baby sister to arrive. I think he's really starting to understand and accept the idea that there's going to be a baby soon...but based on this little video, I'm not sure he's willing to share any of his books with her!

"Max say, 'No no books...Babies, no no books!'"


Love that little midget so much...and can't wait for his baby sister to arrive next week!




Three:  Happy May Day!

I love love love the idea of May baskets. Since I was too lazy to put any together this year {on top of the fact that May totally snuck up on me!}, a virtual May basket will have to suffice...
