round two

I am so blessed to have friends with little ones all at the same stage of life as me. The Four Pack as we call them are made up of (from left to right below): Daisy and mama Casey, Lila and mama Me, Raelyn and momma Jen, Sam and mama Lindsey. They are actually in their reverse birth order here :-)
These sweet baby friends were all born within seven weeks of each other and watching them grow up together, learn to crawl together, steal toys from each other and now, walk in circles around each other has been the most fun, crazy party to watch ever. And the even better part is the fellowship between us Mommas. Having three other women all going through the learning process of being pregnant and then new moms together was an amazing blessing. We talk about what snacks they like, the best place to buy diapers, your favorite teething tip, doctors appointments and lots of cheering when they were all finally sleeping through the night.

A couple of weeks ago, the Four Pack Mommas went out to dinner for the first time sans babies since back when we were all pregnant. It was so fun to chat, walk around downtown Apex checking out stores, sharing funny stories and best of all, discussing Four Pack Round Two. 
That is right! Sam's momma Lindsey is expecting the first member of Four Pack Round Two! She is eighteen weeks pregnant and oh so cute with her little belly. Isn't it amazing to think that all of these kiddos will grow up with friends so close in age? I thank God that Brian and I get to be in such an awesome group of friends and can't wait to hear whether Sam is having a little brother or sister soon!

Have you never, when waves were breaking, watched children at sport on the beach,
With their little feet tempting the foam-fringe, till with stronger and further reach
Than they dreamed of, a billow comes bursting, how they turn and scamper and screech!
