You are a popular little girl. This past weekend, our family mainly stayed home and got to chill out while the activities came to us.
First, on Saturday, Mommy’s boss’s wife and son came to see you, making your brother Jack’s day by bringing him a new Lego set, which he built by the time they left.
Shortly after, Mommy’s good friend from work, Lena, came along with her husband Mohamed and their young daughter Hanna, who is just a few months older than you.
We placed you and Hanna next to each other on a blanket to see how you would interact. I pointed out to everyone that it was if you were looking into the mirror, seeing your reflection.
Hanna’s Mommy Lena added, “Yes, the Middle Eastern version of herself.” We all laughed, because with your fairer, pink-toned skin, it sort of is the difference between Elsa from Frozen and Jasmine from Aladdin.
I know the two of you will grow up knowing each other, as we have been friends with her family for a while now.
The next day, on Sunday, your brother Jack’s longtime friend Madison and her family came to visit you.
Jack and Madison attended the same preschool for several years.
Her family also graciously brought us dinner, which for a vegan/vegetarian family… I know might seem a bit intimidating.
But just like the last family who brought us dinner, the Crawfords, they brought us a fresh vegan pizza from Whole Foods.
Sometimes it’s nice to be able to just stay at home at chill out at the house for the weekend, which is basically what we did. But at the same time, we were able to see people.
This past weekend was undeniably your weekend of visitors. As for this coming weekend, we’ll be taking you and your brother Jack to the Reptile Show. We’ll see how you do on that outing to help determine how often in the future we’ll be able to get out of the house with you.
We would love to take another road trip… like to Florida. But the reality of it is, it’s probably not wise to take a baby like you on a road trip right now.
