Our good friends, Ric and Gin, are proud owners of a brand-new 2009 model Laowai Baby, and having just returned from meeting her for the first time, I wanted to take a moment and reflect.
The benefit of having two close friends go through everything we’re about to, only six months ahead of us, is a fortune we’ll never be able to repay. I’m sure I’m not the first to say that being on the road having my first child is equal parts exhilarating and terrifying. Being able to witness this whole process first-hand in the lead-up is amazing, and having two people that live only minutes away that I can turn to and ask the litany of questions I have about becoming a parent is just awesome.
Ric and Gin, I couldn’t be happier for you both. And as sleepless as the two of you no doubt are, it’s hard to tell through the glow you both have. Aria Marie is beautiful. A truly wonderful addition to your family, and our little tribe.
