Dedicated to my best friend who just had her baby!

My best friend who since Freshman year of college we always showed up half hour early to class...
My best friend who I studied abroad with in England and had the time of our lives...
My best friend who listens to me vent...
My best friend who will bring me back to reality when I have gone freaking psycho...
My best friend who is the most amazing person ever...
My best friend who I consider as a sister...

was just blessed with a beautiful baby girl on Monday.

Words can't describe how elated I am for them.  To have gone through so many life changes with her, it's crazy that here we BOTH are as new mamas.  Through our clubbing days, are working our asses off days, our being single days, our being married days and our being pregnant days... it's here, the time that we both embark on the new journey of parenthood.  Can I just tell you how grateful I am that we both get to experience this pretty much around the same time?  To know that I can talk with her now and she will totally understand and vice versa makes this whole parenting thing a bit easier, especially when I lean on her as one of my rocks in my life.

I was able to visit them in the hospital yesterday and Gabriella is gorgeous.  She was wide awake when I went to visit and we just stared at each other because I couldn't take my eyes off her.  I am so proud of Raff and Tony for taking this new part of life with confidence and stride.  They may be exhausted already, but Gabriella has the best parents anyone can ask for.  I can't wait till our baby girls have play dates!

To Raff, I know you will read this and I want you to know I love you and am so dam proud of you.  You will be the most amazing mother to your sweet girl.  Enjoy this new time as a mama, through all the stress, exhaustion, happy moments, frustrating moments.... all the moments.  I will always be here for you the same exact way you were there for me when Sophia was born.  Welcome to motherhood.
