She's Having A Baby!

It's a little weird when your friends have babies.  It makes you consider your age - are we grown ups?  When did this happen?  This thought has recently been reinforced by the fact that my brother is about to be a father.  It's weird.  But it's also really exciting, and gives me a great reason to take a roadtrip to see my friend and her family, and have an extraordinary Easter dinner.  And it gives me a reason to go shopping.  A lot.

One of the things I love so much about Lisa is that she has a clear childlike sensibility - we both do.  We are, at times, silly girls.  We can see the world from a child's point of view - we find joy and beauty in simple things.  Like dying Easter eggs, and dressing up cats.

This quality not only helps us get along so well, it's going to help her be a great mother.  Lisa's ability to find humor and fun in small things will make the difficult times in parenting a little easier, and will help Baby Owen learn how to be a great person, just like his Mama.
