Meghan meets baby Kenley

On July 10th my best friend from way back when, had her second child and surprised everyone with a little girl! So now we have a matched pair one boy and one girl! These are pictures of the first time Meghan and I  met baby Kenley. I think it was love at first sight for both of us.

It almost looks like Kenley is smiling in this one. Meghan was so excited to see her she went right up to her and shared her lil peanut doll.
As soon as Kenley came out of the carrier Meghan had to hold her. We set her up on the couch and she was just tickeled. It was hard for me to get a good picture because she didn't want to look away from Kenley.

Giving the baby kisses! Kenley went a long way helping Meghan understand that "boppys" were just for babys. It wasn't long after we met Kenley that Meghan gave it up for good, and often said "Boppys for babys!"

Here they are sharing a secret. I really hope they get grow to be close friends and have lots of fun together.
The closest I got to a smile from Meghan. Throughout the day she would mimic with her babydall the behavior of whoever was holding Kenley.. swaying, patting, rocking. It was precious. Not a hint of of jealously!

Here are the bigs outside eating popsicles. Even big brother Carter had a really great day. Colin and Carter are getting along better and better as they get older and are less shy of each other.  So excited for these kids to grow up knowing each other, even if we don't spend as much time together as I would like.

This just made me tear up. Irrationally, yes, but still. I love you. Wish we saw more of each other.
