Shout Outs...

I just wanted to give a little shout out to a few of my fellow pregnant people. It's so fun to have friends who are pregnant at the same time so you can share stories, worries, joys, etc.

Yesterday was a big day. I found out the following information:

My friend Shannon from high school got the great news that she and Nat are expecting a little GIRL!! As far as I know, this is one of the few members of the female sex that will be born in 2010. Seriously, everyone I know who is pregnant is having a boy. Shannon and I had fun planning our weddings together 3 years ago, and have had a blast talking babies so far. Next, we look forward to planning the wedding of Griffin and baby girl Doughtie - but we'll give that another 25 years or so.

My BFF from college Lindsay found out yesterday that she and Adam will be welcoming a baby BOY into the world! Lindz, I think we're right on track with our 5 year what if a few of the "details" have changed?! haha! Can't wait for Griffin and baby Todd to be BFF's just like us! I only wish we lived closer, but maybe we can bring back the whole "pen pal" fad, huh?

In other big news, Chad and I found out that our friends Daniel and Jennifer are expecting!! (Rather, I should say it was confirmed...I totally knew Jennifer.) We are beyond excited to have another couple getting ready to embark on this crazy adventure we call parenthood with us! Man, the scene around our Tech tailgates next season will sure look different, won't it? HOW FUN!

And even though I didn't officially find anything new out yesterday, I have to also give a shout out to Mary, my teaching friend from Norcross. (It was the first year of teaching for both of us and I was lucky enough to pick Mary to share a room with. They say misery loves company, so I think that means Mary and I are bonded for LIFE!) I got to watch her go through her first pregnancy which was fun. I'll never forget the day she told me through email while I was sitting at a desk about 5 yards away from her in the middle of class. It think the subject line was "don't scream!" Since then, Chad and I have fallen in love with her TWIN boys Walter and Grant. Anywho...Mary is expecting baby # 3 and has taken it upon herself to do a home gender test. It says she's having another BOY! I'm a skeptic, so I'm not buying it just yet....Mary, I'll give you another shout out after the 20 week ultrasound. haha... These are her cute little boogers. They want to name baby #3 Scooby Doo. Perfect!


  1. haha...sorry Amy, but I didn't talk to you yesterday about any "news." I'll give you a shout out when you find out what those TWO precious buns in the oven are! :) Plus, all my friends already know about you becase they are in love with your blog! LOL...

  2. Hopefully Tuesday! :)
    I was just giving you a hard time!

    I went to tennis Saturday to watch...makes me want to get out there! But apparently I was a bad luck charm. :(

    Let's get together soon!

  3. wow! I can't believe I made the blog! thanks for mentioning us, Rach! you're the best roommate a girl could ask for. I wish we could justify rooming together again- for whatever reason. I love your blog! xoxo
