Behr's mom is Shannon, my friend whom I met when she moved in with me for a few months a couple of years ago. Shannon and her husband Mark quickly became good friends of ours, and I was excited to find out they were expecting their first baby at the same time as us, "due" 4 days before.
Here we are at Shannon's baby shower at 32 weeks:

Here we are just 7 and 11 days from our due dates:
|How did we go from cute to enormous in just a few weeks?|
When my labor took longer than I expected and I was finally ready to push a little after 11pm, I asked the nurse if I could have this baby today and she said I probably could. Sure enough, Ayla arrived at 11:33pm, just about as close to the end of the day as we could get!
We've gotten our babies together a few times and as you can tell, they are crazy about each other:
Well, at least we are crazy about each other's babies! It's so fun to have a mommy-friend with a baby who has the same birthday but different Every Thing Else!
