A little taste of the real thing…

3 Apr

I’d like to think of it as a “dry run.”  

A few weeks ago two of our dearest friends in the world welcomed their sweet baby girl, Emma Elizabeth into the world.  

Baby Emma

Isn’t she gorgeous?  Daddy Perks and I are over the moon for her arrival because we have officially entered the world of surrogate aunt and uncle-hood and we couldn’t be more proud.

We are also eternally grateful to our friends for giving us a taste for what we’re in for come August.  Emma was born at the same hospital that Baby Perks will be delivered in.  Not only did we get a chance to learn they lay of the land, but Daddy Perks had a chance to flirt with the nurses so they’ll take extra good care of us in a few months 🙂  All I’m saying is…if a little flirting helps me get an epidural as early as possible…flirt on Daddy Perks…flirt on. 

Judging from this picture Emma’s daddy snapped of us one night when we visited in the hospital, I think it’s safe to say we’re sold on the idea of parenthood…
