I've known my girlfriend Candi since I was a freshman in high school. She was a sophomore and we bonded immediately, she's funny, sweet, and the biggest goofball I think I've ever met. We've stayed in touch since then, I was in her wedding, and she was the first one of my close friends to have a baby. "Baby" Cassie is now almost 3 (she and Adam share a birthday of November 11th). Candi and Eric, her husband, just had their second little girl on Monday, the 10th. I got to go see Baby Alicyn or Allie as they're going to call her, in the hospital yesterday. And man, was I smitten. Tiny babies are so precious! Its hard to believe they're ever that small. I was talking to Candi the day before Allie was born and it hit me that she and Cassie would be the youngest babies I've ever held. I wasn't able to hold James for 2 days and that realization made me a little sad. When I was visiting in the hospital it was odd, I could remember everything about my stay like it was yesterday. It was so amazing, they let you have your baby in the room with you if neither of you is sick! Anyway, enough about me... Like I said, I was very taken with little Allie, she has dark brown hair and dark eyes. She's already breastfeeding like a champ and looks just like her big sister at that age, although now Cassie has blond hair and blue eyes. Candi is the most awesome mom and I know both her girls are so lucky to have her!
