I think it goes without saying how wonderful it was to be reunited with Will and with our friends again here at home in Miami.
But, you know what awaits you when you return from vacation.
Yup, a huge pile of mail.
Junk mail, magazines, bills, bills, bills….
This time around however, I had not one but two sweet packages waiting for me.
Well, one was for Lily and the other was for me and Lily.
Our sweet friends Holly and Ariel from Mimosa sent Lily this shirt and Rachel the sweetest and most thoughtful blogger from Hi Happy Panda sent me sea glass that she found in Marblehead, MA in a hand sewn pouch along with a happy panda.
Thank you ladies for your kindness and a warm welcome home. 🙂
It’s been quite a struggle to find friends at the playground. All the kids who usually go are much older than Lily.
Until 3 days ago when this mommy brought her baby girl to play and to see if they too could find friends.
They slowly approached Lily and I and the mommy asked how old Lily was. She was so happy to see another baby close to her 4 month old Sofia at the park. And so was I!
Lily took so Sofia right away, reaching to touch Sofia’s arms, ears and head. It was so cute!
Claudia (what are the chances of the other mommy’s name being Claudia as well) and I hit it off also (it’s important) so we exchanged numbers.
Up until now it’s been just mostly Lily and I all day long by ourselves. I’m aware of the free program that the public library has where they sing and have story time but it takes place on mondays at 10a.m.. Lily is usually taking her morning nap at that time so we have not made it there yet.
I have some mommy friends who live here in Miami but they either have older babies or younger babies. I wish my Holly lived here. Lily and I would have so much fun with her and Spike…. (day dreaming)
Lily had her first play date with Sofia yesterday. On the way to the park, I text-ed Claudia (they live right next to the park, how perfect) and she and Sofia were able to meet Lily and I there.
I put our tapestry down on the grass and the girls were able to really see and reach for one another. They were such sweeties! It was so nice to see Lily interact with another baby.
I can’t wait for the next play date! (possibly today in the afternoon)
P.S.- On the way down Lincoln Rd last night, we met another mommy with an 11 month old Luca. The mommy’s name? Claudia! What are the chances!? 2 mommies in 1 week both named Claudia. Weird!
Here are Lily and Sofia at the park yesterday. Aren’t they sweet??? 🙂 Lily wears top and shorts by Old Navy.
