Congrats JJ, and Kristin!

 JJ, and Kristen are great friends of ours that we met about a year ago. They had just moved jobs from Texas to Riverside, and wanted to get involved in the youth ministry at Harvest. JJ is the men's resident director at California Baptist University, and was the resident director at a men's college in Texas. Kristin is studying for her masters in christian counseling at CBU.
 They first invited us for dinner at their place to get to know each other. It is always a good excuse to have dinner with a couple that is our age and in the same place in life we are.  We had a great time. They are really hospitable, not to mention their apartment (they live on campus) is absolutely adorable, it looks like it is strait out of an ikea catalog. Since then, we have gone on quite a few dinner dates, and have had them over alot in the past year, and visa versa.
 Since I have been pregnant, there are a lot of people that I know that are popping up pregnant. It is really exciting because, for the most part all of us are first timers. Jon was talking to JJ a few weeks ago, and just out of the blue he said Kristin was pregnant. I cannot even begin to tell you how excited both Jon and I are. Our friends that we are pretty close to are going to experience the same thing we are. Kristen is a few weeks ahead of me, and we are both due in April. 

Congrats you guys! We are so happy for you!

That's awesome! It's fun to go through pregnancy with a friend. It's fun to compare doc appts and all that.

I was pregnant both times with friends. It's fun to watch your kids become friends too, especially if they are of the same sex. Hannah, my oldest, is very good friends with the little girl whose Mom I was pregnant the same time with.
