Play Date With The Ladies.

On Thursday, Thatcher and I got some much needed hang out time with my good friend Mallory and her sweet baby girl Penelope. It had been way too long since we had seen each other so it was so good to go over and spend the day at her house gabbing our hearts out and letting the little babes play. Well, I mean they kind of played. Thatcher is almost 6 months old and Penelope turned 7 weeks on Thursday. She is so tiny yet has grown so much since I had last seen her! She is the sweetest little girl, with the most beautiful big eyes! Thatcher played on the ground and Penelope played in her bouncy seat. There was one moment where I sat Thatcher down next to Penelope in her bouncy seat and he put his hands on the side of the seat and started bouncing it for her. It pretty much melted my heart it was so sweet and Penelope just sat there looking out the window enjoying herself!! I'm secretly hoping they fall in love.

Mallory and I always have so much that we can talk about which I absolutely love. I am very fortunate to have a friend like her in my life. We are learning to be moms together... learning from each others experiences. How amazing is the Lord when he places people in your life?

Later in the afternoon a friend, who I met through Mallory, named Lindsay, came over with her sweet baby girl so all the babes could meet. Quin, who is Lindsay's second daughter, is just 9 days younger than Thatcher, so it was so fun to see them interact (or try to at least). I have not seen Thatcher around a baby as close in age as Quin is to him so it was fun to see the similar things that they are doing! Mallory's house was full of baby squeaks and mom-ish discussions, which was so refreshingly fun for me!! I am always so blessed to be able to hang out with such special friends, and so thankful to learn from them. I can't wait to see the babes interact for real and become the best of friends, or first crushes!!
