Or at least that is how her big brother, Logan, refers to her. He doesn’t mean anything mean by it. You see, he is 3, and Disney is his most favorite place in the whole, wide world. So it is appropriate that he refer to his baby sister as “The Evil Queen”, right? For the rest of us, we will call her Layne. Though I will call her Laynie. After all, I call her mom, Bud- and have done so since the 10th grade. Long story, but it has stuck and that is how we still refer to each other. Vicky and I have been best friends since elementary school. Though we went to separate colleges (myself to the University of Florida for undergrad and the University of South Florida for graduate school) and her to Florida Atlantic University for undergrad and “that other state university” for graduate school), our paths brought us both to Tampa Bay, and to 7 houses away from each other. Our husbands have even become the best of friends, too (and we often talk about how much it would stink if they did not get along! 🙂 ) We were the maids-of-honor in each others weddings, in each other’s delivery rooms for the births of our children, and soon I will get to do it again as Vicky and Adam welcome their daughter into the world next month. Here are some of my faves from their recent maternity session at my South Tampa studio. The last has to be my favorite…well, just because that is the epitome of a 3 year old- ha!
Bud, Adam, and Logie…I love you all with my whole heart and am so thrilled for you. Cannot wait to cuddle Laynie and share the love!
On a side note, still trying to navigate my new blog- and I have A LOT of work to do. Click on each thumbnail above to see the enlarged version…pretty cool! Also, look to your left for my Facebook Fan page link. So much to learn over here. I feel like an old dog sometimes who does not want to learn new tricks. But I guess I have to grow with the times, kicking and screaming- ha! Baby steps. Have a great week! :)A
