Cristi is my sister's BFF, but I like to lay claim to her too. When Lexi was born, she lent her nursing expertise and smothered us with kindness, when I was overwhelmed with a fresh batch of postpartum depression and a colicky baby, far away from my family.
She is expecting her first baby in early March, and we can't wait to meet him.
(I was ever so close to saying Terrible Things. Like 'motherhood is hard' and 'eating your young is a perfectly acceptable position'. I had that morning, a terrible mothering morning. But I kept these things to myself, and saved them for you. Don't you feel lucky?)
