We headed out early on Wednesday morning and had a wonderful couple of days away. We didn't get much sleep, we have a baby and we were with good friends...yeah, it makes for late nights, up and down nights and short nights. But it's worth it. Totally worth it. Jared had a concert to play with the orchestra that he was part of this summer so he was busy with rehearsals and then the concert. We were all together in the late evening, talking and laughing over fresh cookies and milk or pie and tea.
Kilmeny wasn't hardly moving or sitting up last time we saw James, Liz and Katelyn. This time she was all over the place, keeping up with Katelyn or hiding from her. They took turns picking up each others' soothers and started the sharing process. It was fun watching them interact!
We went shopping and bought some hats. I needed to get a snowsuit and little boots for Kilmeny so we went looking. It is so much fun shopping for a little girl and accessorizing her wardrobe especially with a friend.
"What do you think, Liz? The striped hat or the ivory hat?"
We went with the ivory hat, in case you're wondering. It matches the snowsuit lining perfectly and is super cute.
We ate lots of yummy food. James is a baker and we got to have pumpkin tarts for lunch and pumpkin pie at midnight. Bliss. Liz also served one of my favorite breakfasts- pastries with coffee and eggs to keep us going.
Kilmeny tried out the high chair for the first time and loved it. So then they took turns and were quite entertained by each other.
It was so refreshing to just sit and talk about everything. We've known each other all our lives and it is incredible to me that we are now both wives and moms to two little girls.
