Friend Kelsey gave birth to a cute and very tiny baby boy in June. Ollie came early, at 28 weeks, so there wasn’t time for a shower for Kelsey before he was born. This weekend Kelsey’s wonderful, talented friends and sister threw her a beautiful shower, just a few days (hopefully!) before Oliver gets to come home.
We had lunch on the roof of Kelsey and Robby’s new building out in Brooklyn Heights, and it was beautiful. It was so nice to spend the afternoon chatting with friends and catching up on everyone’s summers. I loved watching Kelsey open her gifts, and seeing her as a mother. She is so amazing and has been a champ through these last few months while her son is in the NICU. I am amazed by her strength! I love seeing my friends take on the role of motherhood, they all have transitioned so gracefully into this new phase and they’re all such great mothers. It’s inspiring to see!
