at this point in their lives they're better as long distance friends

Katie and her baby Kezia came to visit us for a few days.

Allow me to give a rundown of what Katie and I did during childless sleepovers in years gone by:
paint our nails
watch a movie
stay up late
go shopping
play long games
sit around drinking tea
eat lots of popcorn
This is what we did when responsible for an 11 month old and a 10 month old:
nurse the babies
feed the babies
change the babies
give speech on sharing
put one baby down for a nap
play with the other baby
change the baby
put second baby down for a nap
first baby wakes up
play with first baby
second baby wakes up
keep second baby from pushing first baby over
change second baby
feed the first baby
feed the second baby
etc etc etc etc etc etc

It was every bit as relaxing as it sounds.

Kezi loved Annabelle and usually wanted to be THIS close to her. Friendly waves that ended up being hits and hugs that resulted in her pushing Annabelle over were the norm. Annabelle didn't appreciate the enthusiasm. For someone who doesn't respect the personal bubble of her mother she sure gets annoyed when someone is in hers. They have yet to learn the finer points of being best friends.  

We did manage to introduce the girls to one of our favorite pastimes- the photo shoot. You'd never know they weren't this lovey dovey and angelic the whole six days.
Is the flower on Sesame's headband too small?
