One my closest friends and I had babies at about the same time, on opposite sides of the world. We were best buddies in high school and have remained close through thick and thin. For that reason, we were really excited to see how our sons got on when I went to visit the other day. Neither of us have any friends living close by with sons of the same age as ours, so it was going to be interesting to see how they responded.
They played on the mat for a while, only really noticing each other to exchange toys or to reach out and touch each others faces (this must some kind of baby greeting ritual). After playing for a while, we took them to have a bath. Us moms and Camden’s grandma stood next to the tub admiring all the cuteness. They splashed about and sucked on the toys (both boys are teething). This was the first time that either of the boys had bathed with a friend. As a baby, I always bathed with my brothers or friends that came over, so I thought that it was very sweet to see Elijah and Camden playing in the bath like this. These will be very sweet memories for us!
