A theme in my life lately has been Reconnecting With Old Friends Who Are Having Babies. It’s a pretty great theme, because it means I get to hang out with cute babies AND rekindle friendships that make my heart happy. A couple weeks ago, I got to meet little Ayla, my friend Anna’s second daughter. I still hadn’t met Anna’s FIRST daughter, Addy, who is on her way to being three, if that gives you any indication of how long it had been. I spent the day with them, playing with magnetic tiles and laughing at Addy’s energetic toddler antics, watching the pure love as she kissed her baby sister on the cheek, and thinking, yet again, about how strange and wonderful it is to watch childhood friends care for mini versions of themselves. This was a day of laughter and joy.
