Today Suzi and I went to a NINO babywearing meeting at the library where we met other moms and their babies. She was the littlest and couldn't really keep up with the other kids but had a good time anyway. It was really a meeting for babywearing but there was a lot of other conversation going on which included discipline, baby stuff, cloth diapering, etc. It was especially nice to find a group of mothers who feel the same way about discipline as I always have, and I learned a lot!
Later, my friend from high school (actually back to fifth grade) emailed me to say she was in town and to see if we could get our babies together for a little while. We were friends on Facebook and realized last fall that we were both pregnant and due on the exact same day, May 21st! Weird, right? We later found out we were both having girls. Then we picked the name Suzanne and Casie picked the name Liliana. And Suzanne is from the Hebrew name "Shoshana" which means Lily! I was so jealous when Casie had Lili one day late and Suzi didn't arrive until eight days later! Eight days feels like an eternity when you're 41 weeks pregnant! But now, at seven months old, here they are playing together:
