On Friday we had the opportunity to take of Isla, Camilla’s best baby buddy. The girls were just so stinkin’ cute together that I couldn’t resist pulling out my camera. Care to see how our afternoon went?
Isla came while Camilla was napping but when I carried her into the living room, she broke out into the hugest smile.
I didn’t even bother with toys for a while because they were so amused by each other.
Even though Isla’s about the same size, she’s two months older and can already walk.
This meant that poor Camilla got left in the dust sometimes…
…while at others she was the subject of a little too much attention. (I put the camera down right after this.)
Camilla was also a little bummed that she can’t sit up by herself yet.
It seems that sitting babies have all the fun. (And the toys.)
I can see that having friends over is very important when it comes to learning how to share.
For now, though, I am pleased with how well they both did.
Eventually the fussies set in and we moved to the kitchen to have a little snack.
It’s so fun to have a friend over for lunch!
Isla buckled down and ate her peas with gusto.
Camilla, however, was so distracted that she made an even bigger mess of her teething biscuit than usual.
Eventually, I gave Camilla a turn in the exersaucer while Isla cruised around the kitchen. I had been trying to convince myself that these things are overrated (and thus we don’t need to have a massive plastic baby gym in our apartment), but alas…Camilla did not get the memo. She loved it.
What can I say? It kept them both happy at once. I am converted.
(Not shown: the triumph of womanhood in which I held a nursing Camilla with my left arm and fed Isla her bottle with my right. I can feed two babies at once!)
