Several of our closest friends in DC have kids right around age two and several more of our friends are about to have their first or second baby. It’s really amazing to be surrounded by such close friends with young families. We’re really excited to have a baby of our own with so many “cousins” right around their own age.
We see our friends and their families frequently for picnics, holidays, and celebrations, but our favorite is kids’ birthday parties. Last weekend, Nori turned two so we all celebrated in Malcolm X Park with cupcakes (yum!) and other snacks. Watching Nori and her little friends eat cupcakes was beyond adorable. While waiting to be matched with a baby can be hard sometimes, moments like this give me so much hope for when our baby finally does join us.
