Tuesday brought a day I've been super excited for. My good ol' buddy Cindy and her new baby girl Elanie came for a visit. Cindy, being a much braver woman than I, drove from Kamloops to Chilliwack, with Elanie alone! Gasp!!!
I love this photo of Bethany "watching over" Elanie, and hope as they grow that's exactly what she does.Now that may not seem too bad, except Elanie is just over 2 months old and that's a very long way to take a baby without a passanger to do the "work" while you drive. But she braved the day and arrived here, tired but happy. I was over joyed. We were able to see Elanie on Canada Day but it was so brief I didn't get a chance to hold and cuddle her. Something that I've only been waiting to do since the day Cindy called to say they were pregnant.
AJ was in love and just wanted to be near her and love her.All those years ago we talked of having daughter who would be the best of friends like we are. And while, I don't know how their friendship and their bond will grow over time I do know that this visit my girls were IN LOVE with Elanie. Bethany cooed and blew kisses, tried to "play" with her and Audrey was taken. She'd watch her and get close, she wanted to cuddle, and was infatuated. I think though, the sweetest moment came for me when Elanie sneezed. Audrey disappeared and few moments later returned, carrying a tissue for her. It was compassion and sweet and awwww.
Once my kiddos were in bed Cindy and I got to sit down for some good, long over due girl talk. It was medicine to my soul.
Thanks for braving the drive Cindy, it was sooo good to see you! And it won't be so long next time :)
