Today was Penelope's first playdate! During my pregnancy I became friends with two wonderful mommies named Sarah and Alisha who have babies named Sophia and Linden (respectively). They're both about three months older than Penelope (August & September births). Anyway, we went over to Sarah & Sophia's house and Alisha & Linden met up with us there. We made broccoli & cheese soup (well, Alisha & Sarah made the soup), had snacks, took a walk, and had a wonderful time all around. It was nice to spend time with some other first time moms and talk about babies (and other stuff too!).
So here's a picture of the three "playing"
Hopefully we can do a repeat sometime - Sarah & Alisha both had homebirths (with the same midwives), cloth diaper, and baby-wear, so we have a lot in common baby-wise. We also seem to have a lot in common when it comes to non-baby things! Hopefully we can get all of our husbands together too :)
So with all of the excitement and activity today, Penny did not get in a decent nap. I thought she would crash when we got home but nope! A half an hour of sleep & then she wakes up and either wants to play or eat. I'm hoping this trend doesn't continue into tonight, we were just getting a decent sleep routine down!
