friends with kids


This past weekend, two of my best friends from college, Lauren and Amanda, came over to spend the afternoon with me and have some lunch at Farm Burger. I can't even tell you guys how special it is to have shared these friendships for close to ten years (whaaa?) and see them now raising their own little ones. It's very surreal, too, and watching them pull into my driveway, followed by five minutes of pulling out all their baby bags and toys and, well, babies, had me flashing back to college all over again...when we lived close together and spent all our time at each other's apartments. No babies. Just us. And now our lives have changed in what feels like moments...but it's pretty darn sweet.

This time next year, I'll be pulling into their driveways with a little one of my own! 







We might also have spent most of our day swooning over these two new besties, Hudson and Lily. After an afternoon of playing together, Hudson accidentally hit Lily on the face with his truck, and she started crying. Lauren told Hudson to check on her and say he was sorry. So he proceeded to walk cautiously over to Lily, looking ever so brokenhearted about her tears, and say, "I sorry, I sorry"...

...but thennnnnn...to top it off...he reached out to stroke her cheek. I can't even describe how cute it was. Seriously. I know I'm gushing, but oh my goodness. The three of us mamas locked eyes with knowing looks. We've got a little heart breaker on our hands! I think we should start the Instagram hashtag #hudsonandlily2033. Because, you know, they're going to get married.
