Now that Lily is right at 7 weeks we decided if she was going to end up with superior social skills like her parents, now would be the appropriate time to begin introducing her to her peers to begin the development. One of Lindsay’s long lost friends from high school just recently had a baby girl (just 5 days after Lily) so we thought that she might be a good match for Lily’s first friend. Lindsay took care of setting everything up via the wonders of Facebook and suddenly the day had arrived.
Lindsay had told Lily all about her new friend coming to visit and all the fun things they were going to be able to do. After the conversation it seemed Lily got herself so worked up and excited all she could do was nap. She napped, and she did it well. She managed to actually nap through almost the entire visit with her new friend.
There was a brief moment towards the end of the visit where Lily did wake up. In this moment of clarity she looked over at Caroline and threw her hands into the air in excitement at seeing another baby.
The excitement was fleeting, and didn’t last very long. Within seconds Lily had decided she wanted the outfit that Caroline was wearing and tried to take right of her shoulder.
I guess maybe we should work on sharing…
