Girls, Girls, Girls!

Yesterday Emily Helton was kind enough to host five of her girl friends for lunch - four of whom have baby girls - three of which were born within 8 weeks of each other!! Rachael has Sylvia - who is a mature 14 months old compared to all of our spring 2011 babes.

From left to right: Megan with Clover (born 5.04.11), Emily M. with Audrey (born 5.10.11), Rachael with Sylvia (born 4.08.10), Emily H. with Scarlett (born 3.27.11), and me with Ellie (born 4.25.11)

It was so great to be with other moms for the afternoon and chat over lunch - we talked about our labor experiences, breastfeeding, pacifier use, you name it! It is so reassuring to know that none of us really know what we are doing, but we are just trying to do what is best for our child and family at this particular moment in time.

Of course, we had to have a little photo session before anyone went home....

The whole afternoon was Rachael's idea (since she was the one in from Louisville, the rest of us live in Lex-Vegas) and she was dying to get a picture holding all 4 babies. Which took a little work.

Thank goodness Emily Lane was also on hand to help!

Then we decided to move into Ben and Emily's room where there was an overhead fan that might put all of our 'subjects' in a better mood.

Clover, Audrey, Scarlett, Ellie

Hard to believe Sylvia is only one year older than the babies - it's SUCH a difference!

Scarlett's such a sweetie - she just wanted to hold hands with every one!!

SO so glad we got together - can't wait to do it again!!

I had a blast! And you moms know exactly what you are doing, even if it doesn't feel like it. You're all amazing!
