One of the most difficult things about this move has been leaving our friends and family behind; however, Captain Husband and I can always pick up a phone or hop onto Facebook to see how they're all doing--Sammy can't really do that and I was beginning to get worried about him not having any kiddo-friends his age down here. I put out a few feelers for playdates and was excited when another mom contacted me and invited Sammy and me over to her place yesterday. Turns out that this is a weekly occurrence and all of the kids are between fourteen- and sixteen-months old--perfect!
Sammy was the youngest of the group of seven, but he was also the biggest (I got a lot of surprised responses when I told everyone hold old he was); he warmed up to everyone pretty quickly and spent most of the afternoon playing in the backyard with the rest of the gang (and/or his belly button). I'm really glad that he'll get to make new friends down here, and hopefully I'll make some new friends in the process as well.
