The terrific twosome


Yesterday Sammy and I spent the day in Frederick, Maryland, at my friend, Julianne's, house.  Julianne works from home and was having a difficult time corralling her crawling eight-and-a-half-month-old daughter, Lillian, while at the same time attempting to eke out some work; making things slightly harder was the fact that her husband is out of town all this week.  So I offered to drive up with Sammy and watch Lillian during the day so that Julianne could get some uninterrupted time to take care of some things.  I was pretty excited to get the two kids together for some play time and hoped that maybe Lillian could teach Sammy a thing or two about crawling.


The two kids got along fabulously and played together happily on the floor; Sammy even attempted to get onto his hands and knees a few times after watching Lillian in action.  While he didn't fully get the hang of it, he did cut his second bottom tooth this morning; hopefully I'll be able to grab a photo of it soon.  After their morning naps, I unpacked my stroller and its extra seat and loaded the two kids into it to take a walk around the neighborhood so Julianne could work in peace and quiet for a little while.  I have to admit--I was pretty excited to try out the stroller with the extra seat attached to see how it handled.


In my excitement to go out on our walk, I totally forgot to bring my camera, which was a shame as we came across a whole family of ducks in the park, not too mention some lovely country scenery.  Oh well, I suppose there's always next time.


Julianne took a break from her work later that afternoon and went with us to the tot lot in her neighborhood where we set the kids a-swinging.  Sammy definitely had a lot more fun swinging this time than he did the last time that I took him, but he didn't hold a candle to Lillian's enthusiasm for the swings; she really loves the feeling of the wind in her face--it was so cute watching her laugh and giggle as she swung back and forth.  All in all, the day went very well; Julianne got some work done and both kids seemed to have a great time.  I think we'll have to make plans to do this again some time!

Ooh, I have the same stroller, but so far, only one baby. It looks super cute with two kids in it!
