So, we just wanted to have one final Playdate BS (Before Sofia) before Jen leaves... and to give her a gift that our little ones created for Sofia.
Sheridan shared his scooper with Ainsley...
Then Annelies joined the group...
And, of course, our good buddy John Michael was there - he was all over the place. And he even gave me knuckles and called me "doo" (Dude)!
Joey showed me his "clappy hands"
Sheridan pretty much just enjoyed chillin' near the sandbox all morning.
John Michael and Sheridan stood at the bench and ate a snack... correction: John Michael ate a snack. See that lone goldfish in Sheridan's hand? I think he's trying to hide it from JM :)
Look at our boys growing up!
Of course, no playdate is complete with our rainbow blanket. We bring this to EVERY playdate. It's become our signature photo-op backdrop. Joaquin spent sometime hangin' out somewhere between doin' yoga and standing up...
The really cool thing is that our group is growing so quickly - we've nearly outgrown the rainbow blanket! And this isn't even HALF of our total group! Oh, say hi to Cristian at the back of the blanket there :)
And a new family came... little 4-month-old Lance met his new buddies for the first time.
And little Delilah Rose was there - here she is with honorary auntie Cori...
and sleeping on her mama.
Sheridan eventually found all of Joaquin's snacks, including his watermelon.
Did he eat it? Nah. He just wanted to stack it. Over and over again.
This is proof that even though he won't stack your boring 1-inch blocks during your evaluation, he will stack the heck out of everything else.
See how proud he is of himself?
And now for Sofia's gift... an afghan of her own! Made with love (as always!) by the fabulous, wonderful, amazing CJ. (a big thank you for pulling off the second afghan I've requested as a surprise!)
I asked each child to choose a color to "give" to Sofia and why they contributed it to her afghan. You'll have to check out Jen's post to see the details :) But I know we did a good job when Jen cried :)
It was a great morning! And I'm so excited that the next time I see this afghan it will be cuddled around MISS SOFIA!!!!!!!
