little friends.

I've only said it three million times, but it bummed me out so, so much that we moved at a time when all my friends and I finally had kids all around the same age.

But... we did.

And it sucked. But then? We started making friends here and growing a life here and all of sudden; there's little friends again.


Last month (whoa, behind much) we did head back down to Savannah for a birthday party of one of BG's little friends and it was a blast. Although BG and her bff, Kathryn, kind of did their own thing the whole time, we still managed to get the the three girls together for one picture.

BG and Kathryn spent most of the afternoon running around and playing. K is three months older than BG and it is so fun to see the dynamic. When BG is around K, K is a force to be reckoned with and my little one takes a backseat. She plays and all, but she's more quiet and reserved to K's full out rambunctioness.

Then there was Mac's party...

I've had the opportunity to get to know Anne pretty well since we've moved up and here and I am beyond thankful for her friendship. She is just so easy to be around which I love and any time we get to hang out, I find that hours have gone by in what felt like a minute.

It also helps that her Mac and BG get along.

So Mac's party. We had so much fun and I saw a total different side of BG. Where she had been reserved at Gabby's party, she was the opposite here. She was loud and crazy and ran around a bit like a chicken with her head cut off.

You know, a total doll.

I really think it was because she was just having such a good time.

With her pal Hudson

Such a good time in fact, that she didn't want to leave and made herself right at home with Mac's entire family. She does know how to work a crowd.

Thankfully the birthday boy was amazing and even went out of his way to let her play with all his new toys after he opened them.

A true Southern gentleman for sure.

I almost couldn't get BG to leave. I'm pretty sure she had decided to up and join Anne's family. At one point, Mac took off down the hall yelling "Mimi, Mimi!!" and BG took off copying him. And then for the next two days, she walked around looking for "Mimi!" no matter how many times I told her she didn't actually have a Mimi. That was fun.

You ready for her again Anne??

I am so thankful for these little friends of hers.

I'm also pretty darn thankful for their Mama's who are amazing friends to me.

I'm way jealous of you SC blog girls all getting to hang out together. Speaking of, that photo of BG with Hudson is just too cute.

I also can relate to missing the new mom friends back home. That's great that you're close enough to celebrate birthdays with some of your old gang.

Yes of COURSE we're ready for her. She really was a doll - and I'm surprised everyone let you take her home. We consider her a fabulous role model for this baby-girl-to-be. And if you thought Mac was in a sharing mood, you had your "other kids" blinders on. Bless your heart for that! xoxo

It is so interesting to me how kids are polar opposites in different environments. I've been seeing that tonight at parent-teacher conferences...when they are with their parents they are totally different kiddos!
