Happy Birthday, Ally!

We had the McGees over for dinner tonight, not only for good company, but also to celebrate Ally's 21st birthday :) ...he-he. Since we were going to miss the get together at their house on Monday, we wanted to celebrate with them somehow, what better way than with some dinner, cake, and wine...oh yeah, and the kiddos.

Ally and I have known each other for, wow, almost 3 years now. We instantly clicked when I first met her, I believe it's because we have the same goofy, corky, and teasing personality, but anyways, we were friends ever since. Although we don't live far, we still don't see each other as often, but hopefully that will change. When we do get together, though, it's like no time has passed. From the moment we get together to when she leaves, we are in constant conversation, bouncing around from one topic to another, and back to the original topic. Sometimes our husbands finally have to step in and call it a night...party poopers. We have a great time with them, though, whenever we see them.

One thing, very cool about Ally and I, is that we got pregnant at the same time (my second, her first). So we were in contact with each other weekly, comparing how we felt, our doctor appointments, weight gain, and the dreadful last month where time freezes and your uncomfortable beyond words. Then on May 9, after having Alexander, Greg and Ally, with her about to go into labor herself any day, came to meet the little boy. She was the last person I expected to come and visit, knowing just how tired she was, but she did (trooper). When Wally and I came home the next afternoon, we got a phone call saying Ally was in labor ...YEA! Abigail Grey McGee finally arrived on May 11. So with our babies being just 2 days apart, you can only imagine what it is like when we get together...talk, talk, talk, and more talk. And tonight mom and dad were so proud and happy to share with us that Abby rolled over for the first time :)...go, Miss Abby.
