Best Friends

Way back in junior high, I met a girl named Danielle. She and I became best friends. We did everything together. We played tennis together. We had classes together. We went to our school dances together. We took "model" pictures in her backyard together. Ha! Through the years we remained friends. We went through our phases of being super close, then not so close, then not talking much, then super close again. That seems to be how girlfriend relationships work during the pre-teen/teenage years. We kept in touch a bit through college but didn't see each other much. It was hard since I was living in a different state!

After I got pregnant with Jax she called me to tell me that she was pregnant as well. She was due almost exactly one month after me. We were S.O. excited to go through everything together. The only sad part was that I was 3000 miles away. We still talked often through our pregnancies and compared notes. I often got calls from her wondering if this or that was normal, or how I felt about such and such. We found out that we were both having boys and we became even more excited. Then we told each other what we were naming them... Jax and Max! They were destined to be best friends. When Jax was born 12 days late, Max decided that he couldn't wait any longer. He came out a few weeks early and they ended up only being 8 days apart.

Danielle and I have been looking forward to the days when they could play together. Over the past 2 months, we've had lots of these days.... days that have been 12 years in the making... and totally worth the wait!

I can't wait to see what the future has in store for these two best friends!!
