Amy and I were able to share much of our pregnancies together with her nugget being due May 21st, and mine June 15th. But with an early arrival by hers, and a late arrival by mine, they ended up being about 2 and half months apart instead of 3 weeks.
At any rate, they are still close enough in age to be playmates. Matilda and Paddy Jr are too young to probably be able to determine if they will be forever friends, but I would be lying if I didn't envision them running around and getting into mischief together each and every time Amy and I are lucky enough to get to visit.
What better way to build a friendship than to share your favorite things in life:
They both got to hang-out in Grandpa's boat, chew on some plastic worms, and play peekaboo with the chair. (Here Matilda, is showing us how she knows what an elephant 'says'...)
And who among us hasn't heard of the phrase: Friends that bathe together, stay together.
Okay, I totally made that up, but can you resist these pictures.
Certainly, I will be punished for these some day... Guess whose booty is bigger? I'll give you a hint. It's not the eldest child's....
Oh, what a weekend it was. These two are definitely still in their own little world, and it will only continue to get more fun as they interact more. In the meantime, I will continue to be grateful for my amazing friend, and soak up every second I get to spend with her and her always-up-for-a- good-time Hubby (who by the ways is the only person I have ever met to successfully comandeer my Mother's kitchen and make dinner from start to finish)...
