23 Weeks Along and Introducing a New Addition to the Willingham Family!

On April 9th, my good friend Adriana Willingham had a little boy named Simon Elliot Willingham.  Adriana has been my prego friend in crime.  It seems like yesterday it was the end of June and we were flying to Birmingham, Al to visit family.  Most of our convo stemmed around whether or not we were going to try for baby number two, all the obstacles in the way and if our hubby's would ever get on board with the idea.  Not knowing our fate on the baby front, I just had a strong feeling she would pregnant soon after our trip.  Sure enough three months later she tells me she is 12 weeks along and we just started trying ourselves, not knowing a month later we would be expecting too!
It has been so nice to have a friend to be pregnant with.  I have always wished for a pregnant friend, someone to share gripes and complaints with through this beautiful yet challenging journey called Motherhood.
 It is so surreal that Simon is finally here!  Tears came to my eyes when I saw him for the first time, lovingly embraced in his Mamma's arms.  I cannot believe this will be me in about 4 months!  I don't feel ready, although I do not think anyone ever feels fully prepared for a child.  

 The amazing duo of Henry and Miss O.  They were so crazy together, I was hoping the IPad would entertain them, but I think they just needed to be at a park and run around.  Hospitals are not a great place for kids.
I love her hand around his arm, however that is more of a get your hands off the IPad rather than a loving embrace. :)
One last pic of the sweet little boy.  I think Henry looks like his Father, but I think Simon looks a lot like Adriana.  You have your mini me's!  I cannot wait to watch him grow over the next year.  Congrats Willingham's he is gorgeous!
