Waiting for Babies

Two of my friends that live down here on base with me are expecting babies. One is due next week and this is her first, and the other is due in a few weeks and it's her second. All of our husbands are working hard out in this hot Louisiana sun, so while the guys are away us ladies have been hanging out. Including a 6 hour marathon at the Burger King playland on Saturday! (Yes, *really* 6 whole hours!)
With the upcoming deployment, both ladies are naturally pretty sad that the new daddy's won't get to know their babies very well. And both mommies will have to go through new-mommyhood on thier own. I thought I would get them each little cheer-them-gifts. Not sure how much it cheered them up, but these little shirts are pretty darn cute!
I ordered them off of Cafe Press. They have so many fun shirts. We ordered a t-shirt from CafePress for my father-in-law for Father's Day that said, "My son is serving in the US Army so yours won't get drafted". He, of course, loved it and wears it proudly.
Both babies are boys, obviously. I got the t-shirts big enough so they can wear them when daddy is gone to show off just who they belong to! And maybe make the mamas smile a little.

I love the shirts - very cute! I like the one you got for your father in law too - sounds great!
