baby mama

happy hump day! i’d love to shine the spotlight on someone vital to my motherhood journeys as well as my Christian walk. remember my confession post, In Love With Lean, from about 6 months ago? weeeeeell,

this pretty young thang is one of the good friends i was referring to… my BM, Marguerite!

(i.e., Baby Mama, as we affectionately call each other.)

 through my infertility struggles with both pregnancies, Marguerite helped me cope with having to ‘sit down somewhere’ from all the excessive exercising i was doing in the most loving way possible. lol. she has a masters in counseling because it’s clearly what she was born to do!  we met at UH, were even roommies for a semester, and continued to keep in touch after graduation.  she prayed and fasted with and for me during those times, and i received her advice and words wholeheartedly because i knew they were from the Lord. fasting solo (and usually for your own personal issues) is physically and mentally difficult enough.   but to care for another friend so much (i’m not talking about your spouse, mom, dad, siblings, etc.) that you sacrifice yourself and go to the Lord on their behalf… i am utterly thankful God put her in my life.  i’m also grateful she was willing to let Him use her in the first place!  being obedient to God’s commands and tasks can be uncomfortable and downright hard.  it can often make relationships difficult, very awkward…or even eventually non-existent. but you must do what He tells you to do… His way.  it’s about His glory, never us.

we were preggo together for both of our children, however, she is chunking me the deuce for babies #3 and 4, hahaha! i’m on my own now, but i know she’ll be with me in spirit.

i was almost 9 months along and she was about 6 when we met up for our BM prenatal massages and lunch back in 2011. we worked out (walked on the treadmills), hung out and talked about baby stuff, and ate good of course. boobs and bellies everywhere!

we were gettin’ our Red Lobster on for lunch in this throwback pic,

and a few months ago we met up for brunch at Le Peep before heading to get our massages. i was 8 months along and she was right behind me again at almost 6!  because my birthday had recently passed, she told me my massage was on her.  what a sweet, sweet surprise and a testament to her character.

aaand of course we attended each other’s baby showers!

i’ve had so much fun sharing blessings and making memories with this girl.

she came to spend some quality time with Odego and i at the hospital back in June, and i was recently blessed to return the favor because her sweet baby girl, Callie Marie, is already HERE! today is actually Callie’s due date and i am elated she is safely in her mama’s arms and in the comfort of their own home.

    • Marissa she is a total Godsend! i pray you get to experience the same type of relationship, you bet. Hubbies do their best… but IMO nobody really understands and relates to a preggo woman like another preggo woman 🙂
