Baby C’s new Nikes
Round Hill, VA
June 7, 2008
My good friend Heather is having a baby next month! Heather and I have been close friends since we were 13, so it’s great to experience all of life’s big milestones together. This baby will be Heather and Scott’s first child, and they are going to be wonderful parents. Several of my friends were there, including friends from high school that I don’t get to see often enough.
I’m a sucker for adorable baby shoes, so I loved these little Nikes. Heather’s father and step-mother are marathon runners, so they gave their little granddaughter the gear to get an early start. Too cute.
This cake was made by the baker who made their wedding cake four years ago.
It was so good that I ate three pieces. I have no shame.
Candy party favors

This is the highly nutritious and not at all fattening punch that my friend Jen and I made.
A diaper tree made my our friend Melanie
Heather’s sister, Judy, decorated the top of her present with these two little boxes.
Inside they contained pacifiers: one said “Angel” and the other said “Mute button.”
Baby Zoolander’s first look
My good friend, Sarah, with her daughter Anna. Sarah was my college roommate, and I think
it’s awesome that she has become friends with Heather, my buddy from high school.
Heather’s mom is so excited about being a grandmother! She kept cuddling with every baby in the room.
I walked up just as Heather’s mom was chewing on baby Anna’s leg.
I missed that shot, but captured Anna’s reaction. Hilarious!
Darling Anna again.
Grandma-to-be with the amazing bouquet that Heather’s sister made out of baby socks and washcloths.
My friend Amy with her son, Andrew.
My friend Jen. You might remember the portraits of her adorable family.
Sisters Judy and Heather
When I have kids, I’ll teach them to charge more than that.
Scott is going to be the sweetest dad.
Sarah and Anna are completely adorable. Right after I took this photo, Anna leaned out to kiss me. Sigh.
I can totally understand why Heather’s mom chewed on her.
Two of Heather’s friends are also pregnant this summer! Here they are in increasing order of baby progress.
Of course then I did the same photo with the dads’ baby bellies.

I had to include their Bernese mountain dog, Pongo. Pongo is the world’s biggest and cuddliest teddy bear.
