Aren't friends great?

I could not get through life without friends. I am one of those types of people who NEEDS people. I really love my alone time, don't get me wrong, but I really love to socialize. I am married to a man who is quite content staying at home, and not seeing people. Ever. 

We are very different.

But back to the point of this blog.

My friends S and M stopped by for a quick visit on their way to see some family. They brought their beautiful children PK and Little Bean. A couple of red headed darlings. I love this family for a few different reasons.

They're British. So they completely understand my low tolerance for heat and humidity.
They're raising a couple of christian kids. And they're ok with it.
They're so completely down to earth. 
They know what it's like to be starting out. 
They parent the same way Cuinn and I want to parent. Which is so reassuring that I'm doing something right. Because I've seen how her kids act, and they are wonderful children! PK is such a joy, and Little Bean is such a sweet little boy. 

Anyway, they were able to stop by and we got to meet each other's babies. We have both had babies since the last time we saw each other (actually, last time I saw them S was pregnant, and I was still not.). Her Little Bean is  just as cute as the pictures I've seen! He is such a boy! I don't like to be stereotypical about kids, but he was so content to sit in the sand and dig and eat dirt. He was such a mess and it was wonderful. My motto is, the dirtier the clothes, the more fun we had. Boy did Little Bean have fun. :)

One of the other things I love about this family is their generous and giving hearts. They brought with them a laundry basket FULL of clothing for baby Aislynn. Also a book on BLW, which is going to put me more at ease with my decision. I've already read the first chapter and I can already feel that my decision was the right one. While I was trying to put Aislynn down for a nap, I went through the laundry basket of treasures and sorted it all and put it all away. Let me tell you, there are some BEAUTIFUL pieces that I can not wait to put Aislynn in! Seriously! I actually took a couple pictures of my favorites just so I could post and brag about my new outfits. I am so glad that my love affair with overalls is someone else's joy too. Another wonderful thing about the treasures? Some of them are British!! Yay!!

Anyway, here are a couple pictures. 

 I love, love, LOVE polka dots!

LOOK! She sits by herself!!

Anyway, thank you S and M for stopping by and giving us our new to us outfits! Looking forward to getting together again!

Thanks for hosting us, we really enjoyed seeing you and meeting your little treasure in person. We are also thrilled that a special little girl is going to get to enjoy those clothes, too! That's so funny about overalls, I LOVED them for Pk when she was little and by the time he was three months old, I had Baby Bean in overalls all the time, too.
Let's aim to visit again, we love you guys!

It was so wonderful seeing you all! We definitely need to have another visit!

I'm so glad somebody else see's how adorable overalls are. Aislynn has so many overall outfits. Dresses and pants AND shorts. Seriously. I see a pair of baby overalls and I can't NOT buy them for her.
