The days can seem monotonous though if you don't get out. Luckily for me, I happen to have a handful of girlfriends that had babies around the same time I did- 3 within a month of me! Each week I try and plan out at least one get together. I'm a big planner in all aspects of my life- meal planning, workout planning, and now mommy planning.
One of my very best friends, Beth, had her son 1 month and 6 days after Connor (not that I was counting or anything!) and we have high hopes for our little guys to be best friends too. Since they are so close in age, it's amazing to see C do something (coo, grab, reach, etc) and then Ray do it within a few weeks. Yesterday C and I ventured down to the city to visit with Beth and Ray. The weather was breezy but sunny enough that we could bundle up for a walk on Kelly drive. Us mamas got to talk while the boys napped- although not as long as we had hoped for!
Later, we were all hanging out in the living room, Ray in his rock n play and Connor in my lap. I brought C over to Ray to say hi, and my heart literally melted when C reached down to Ray's hand, and Ray reached back for C's. Watching them look at each other while holding hands was too much for me, and I may have teared up a little. The boys won't tell anyone though :)
