Yesterday Sunny and I went on a play date with two of our favorite boys and their awesome Mommies.
Jenn and I met at the hospital, we were suite mates. We gave birth on the same day exactly 12 hours apart. We talked a lot through the hospital curtain in the middle of the night when her son had colic and she was struggling with breastfeeding, and Sunny was so quite that I kept checking her breathing. It was bonding experience and one that I am very grateful for.
The babies have grown so much since those early days and now that it's summer Sunny and Ethan spend much of their time together. Our day started with a picnic in Jenn's backyard in the city. We had mini sandwiches and wine, while the babies played in the pool.
We then went to a music class where we met up with my best friend Nora and her son Aidan, who are visiting from London. Aidan has gotten so big and is crawling/walking, constantly smiling, and such a good boy for his Mama. It is indeed a wonderful thing to see your friends as Mama's, especially when they are as great at it like Nora is.
At music class I learned that Sunny is by far the most prissy little girl God ever created. She enjoyed the singing and the story but could not be bothered to pick up the musical shakers, or the colorful balls. She also sort of hated the bubbles as they would explode on her baby skin every time they touched her. Sunny was hilarious! The boys of course LOVED the bubbles and the balls, puppets and dancing.
We went back to Jenn's with both boys and they played so nicely together in the pool, that is until I placed Sunny in and she cried once she saw that the boys were splashing. I'm no scientist but I can tell you that boys are boys from the very beginning and girls are girls. My brother and JC will be thrilled to know that Sunny is indeed a full fledged girl. With hands constantly in her hair, ankles crossed at the feet, a love of all things clean and frilly, an absolute disgust of bugs, balls, bubbles, and splashing, my girl is 100% a lady in training.
And then, before we knew it, it was time to go home. Sunny was drained, I was exhausted, everyone was happy. The end.
