When I was pregnant with Evelyn, we took 8 weeks of childbirth classes based on the Bradley method of natural childbirth. The Bradley method focuses on the husbands as coaches during pregnancy, labor & delivery. We went through the class with 4 other couples. 2 of us had girls and 3 had little boys: Evelyn, Katelyn, Cade, Max & Fletcher. When the youngest (Fletcher) was about 4 weeks old, we had a reunion with all of the Bradley families.
Here are all of the daddies, proudly holding their babies!

Jesse, with Fletcher.
Nick, with Max.
Little baby Simbas (and Nalas).
Evelyn participated begrudgingly.
…and of course, the mommies, who brought these beauties into the world.
We took turns with each other’s babies …
Evie was so comfy with Lindsay that she fell asleep sitting up!
The two girlies, in polka dots.
Curious about Fletcher.
Happy baby, happy mama.
Crystal + Cade
Nick + Max
Such a caring big brother.
The proper miss Katelyn.
The mommies! (minus Judy)
Smiles for her daddy.
So tired after having fun with baby friends.
