Rylee Nicole's mom, Annemarie and I have been friends since junior high school when I let her sit next to me on the school bus. Even though we pretty much had zero classes together and totally different sets of friends, we've stayed close all this time. She is truly one of my best friends and I don't know what I'd do without her. This is Annemarie's third child, she has two more adorable munchkins whom I also claim as "mine" - Desaray and Andrew.
However, Rylee is extra special because Annemarie asked me to be her Godmother. I am so happy and honored that she asked me. I wish I could have been there at the hospital but we don't even live in the same state anymore. Irregardless, we managed to stay close and keep in touch. I was chatting online with her the day before and the day of Rylee's birth. (Up until a few hours before Rylee decided to make her grand entrance anyway.) Annemarie was also sure to call me and I got to hear her crying during her first hours of life. It was truly beautiful.
