I write this post as I’m receiving text updates from Doug while Nicole & him are at the hospital, & she is in active labor! I am so excited to be an aunt & meet my nephew! But I am a little more excited to watch Nicole become a mom. She has never been given the “easy way out” in anything in life, so trying to get pregnant was no exception. Her & Doug had a successful IVF journey and I could not be more proud of her for all of the strength she’s had to go through that & her pregnancy. A quote I found that fits them perfectly is “I admire people who choose to shine, even after all of the storms they’ve been through”.
OMG SHE’S BEING PREPPED FOR A C-SECTION!!
Again, prime example of how nothing usually goes the way she hopes for – but everything will be worth it in the end when she can hold her little man in her arms! I cannot thank her enough for giving our family this opportunity to experience this next chapter in life & everyone knows I am going to cry my eyes out for the first month of his life every time I look at my little nephew.
Longwood Gardens was a beautiful backdrop for Nicole & Doug’s maternity photos. From the bright buildings covered in greenery to the romantic lush gardens, we loved strolling around the park with these soon to the parents!
