I can't believe my sweet friends are having a baby! I think this little guy might be the cutest thing the world has seen yet. It's always a bit surreal when your lifelong friends tell you they are having their first baby. The first time I met Mark and Katherine, I was in 5th grade and they were in 6th. Yes - we have known each other for 14 years. That's crazy! Will and I have made so many memories with them throughout the years… cutting up during choir, laughing hysterically during improv class (do y'all remember that?!), musical theater, Mark and Will were on the soccer team together, Katherine and I were on the cheerleading squad together, high school dances, trips to the beach, to the lake, to visit Katherine's grandparents, going to concerts, praying for one another, talking for hours… the list goes on and on. Katherine and Mark went on to become High School sweethearts (like myself and William), and our friendship with this couple no doubt will last a lifetime.
Katherine, you are already such a beautiful mama. You are so gifted and loving, there is no doubt you will make one incredible mom. Mark, you are going to raise up a sweet boy to be a strong man of God. Your kid is going to have an incredible example in his dad, and he will definitely be smothered by your love! We love you guys, and we are so grateful you are part of our lives. We are thrilled for you, and we already love baby Jackson to pieces. Can't wait to meet him in just a few short weeks!
