A few months after throwing up every morning in the oh-so-awesome first trimester of pregnancy with Elianna, we got a phone call that JD’s cousin, Joy, was also pregnant. Months younger than me, we both experienced the shock of being young pregnant post grad gals early into our marriages. And when I was pregnant with Claire? Another phone call that once again, we were (surprise!!!) baby buddies.
Joy is also married to a JD (Jonathan David) which means family gatherings are sometimes confusing. Did you catch that? In case you weren’t keeping track, here’s how we’re freakishly connected:
1. Both married to Jonathan David dudes who go by JD
2. Pregnant with number one at age 22/23 when babies were supposedly thoughts in the distant future
3. Pregnant with number two (surprise again!!!) just months apart again.
Joy and JD have two awesome little boys, Jude and Asher. So far, Jude is the only toddler who gives El a run for her money in terms of energy level [true story]. He is both explosive and super loving.
And somehow, in between being a super mama to her boys, loving her man, instructing Bradley birthing classes, and [now in the process of] moving from Denver, CO to Turlock, CA… Joy makes amazing jewelry.
