This is my friend Jessica and her sweet family. I know Jessica through her sister, Yessenia who is one of my best friends. We grew up around the block from each other in Austin, TX. Jessica was a few years younger than Yessenia and me, so we didn’t play together too often (seriously, little sisters are supposed to be annoying, right? LOL! I don’t ever remember Jessica being THAT little sister, but still…haha!) Back then, I was pretty much a fixture at their house. Their mother nicknamed me “Kimmie” like DJ Tanner’s best friend from Full House…I’m not sure if that’s a good thing. LOL! Nooo, I know she meant it endearingly…right? Anyways, that was from about 3rd grade to freshman year of high school for me and then, they moved far, far away to Dallas, TX. Luckily, we stayed in touch and years later, as fate would have it, I moved just about 10 minutes away. Of course, living so close and having known each other pretty much our whole lives, we started to get to know each other again. That has been such a joy to me! I love seeing Jessica as an equal and not just my friend’s little sister. Plus, Jessica and I have a lot of the same interests. For one, Jessica and I both have degrees in Psychology. Also, as many of you know, I worked in OBGYN for 6 years and have since become a “birth junkie” and a birth photographer. Well, Jessica has since become an L&D nurse, so obviously that makes for fun conversations for us. I just love that I can talk birth with her and it doesn’t freak her out. Yay, birth! Haha!
Aaannnddd, that brings me to this! Jessica is expecting her second baby! Jessica and her husband, John already have one of the cutest and sweetest little boys ever, Liam. Gawww! Look how cute he is!! They certainly could not out-do him with another boy, so this time around they are having a beloved baby girl!
Meet Jessica, John, Liam and soon-to-be Harper Grace:
