today was a good day. CJ and i went to lunch with our old friend Noreen who just had a baby herself. miss Laney is a mere 3 months old and as cute as a button. we went to cheeseburger in paradise which was fabulous and talked babies over fish tacos and ham wraps. she brought us our first baby gift today, it is beginning to feel more real as more people acknowledge the fact that LL 2.0 is on the way. there is no better person to get motherhood advice from than a new mom herself, and before we knew it, 2 hours had passed. good times.
