Carli + Josh | Maternity

I still remember the first time I met Carli. Josh and I were on the treadmills at the gym, and I was walking rather briskly (or so I thought) for being 25 weeks pregnant. I look over and there is this girl literally sprinting two treadmills down from me. That was Carli. She looks over around the same time that I notice her and says, "Hi, Springs people!" She recognized us from church. Josh had just taken the job as student pastor at Church @ the Springs a few weeks prior. There are thousands of members at our church, so you never know who you are going to run into! Thankfully, we met Carli that day. She has become a wonderful friend ever since. Not long after I gave birth to Micah we started working out together. She runs a bootcamp, but offered to meet with me one-on-one two days a week. Let me tell you… that girl whipped me back into shape! Because of her dedication and encouragement, I was able to shed the 50lbs I gained during pregnancy with Micah. Just a few weeks into our workouts, Carli told me she was pregnant. I thought that would surely stop her from working out with me - but it didn't! And I think it motivated me even more. If she could do squats, sit-ups and burpees 20+ weeks pregnant, then surely I could too! I was honored when she asked me to take maternity photos for her. She is expecting a sweet baby girl named Kody in just a few short weeks! I can't wait to meet the adorable little sweetheart. Knowing all Carli accomplished this pregnancy, I wouldn't be surprised if Kody was born with built in abs! ;)
