So. There’s this girl. And she’s having a baby. A “Tiny Dancer”, if you will. And Tiny Dancer is going to be beyond loved, spoiled, cherished, and adored. Why? Because BU is her mommy. And BU is freakin’ awesome!
I have a super soft spot in my heart for BU. We connected through my previous blog, and as it turned out, we live within about an hours drive of each other. And when we “met”, we were both going to the same RE.
When Evan and I were gearing up for IVF #2, after a horrifically disasterous round 1, we found out that we did not have enough insurance coverage left to pay for the entire cycle, or medications. We had no idea how we were going to come up with the money to cover the balance. When BU found out, she offered to donate her unused medication, and even dropped it off at the clinic for me. It took a series of miracles to get through that cycle, and BU was one of them.
I know that to her it wasn’t a big deal, but it was HUGE to me. Especially since IVF#2 is the reason we have our Emma.
This is the type of person BU is.
I am so thrilled that she is finally getting her baby girl. She is such a great mom to her 2 little guys, and will be just as devoted to her princess. The theme of this blog shower is “Spoiled as Shit”, and I can pretty much guarantee that Tiny Dancer will be! BU has been waiting her whole life to have a little girl, and will do everything in her power to make sure that this little girl has everything she needs, and then some.
BU has such an awesome personality, and a God-given gift for being snarky and down to earth. She is honest, and doesn’t sugar coat the parts of life that suck. She is a strong woman, with a wicked fast witt and sense of humor that will make you cry (in a good way). Oh, and she’s freakin’ gorgeous. Her kids have pretty much hit the genetic lottery. No joke.
I wish I could find the right words to express how sincerely grateful I am for BU, and how happy I am that she is getting her little girl. I am so happy for Tiny Dancer. She really couldn’t have asked for a better mom.
So, BU. Thank you for being my friend, and for always letting me know that you are here when I need you. Thank you for being honest in your posts, and for showing me that I am not alone in many of my struggles. I know that Tiny Dancer is going to amaze you with all the wonderful things that come with having a little girl, and that she will fit so perfectly into the space in your heart reserved just for her.
I love you, lady. And I’m happy to be here for you whenever needed. Congrats on your bundle of pink. You’re totally going to rock this!
