As many of my reader’s know, I often post about my best friends’ children. Since I don’t have any of my own, I give my undivided attention to Elise and Ethan when I see them. Soon enough, they will be grown and babies no longer đŸ˜¦

A quick trip to Springridge Farm in Milton proved to be a success for Elise but not so much for Ethan. Ethan was less than impressed on this trip but Elise was in good spirits. At least we were successful for one!

We tried our best to capture some cute shots of the kids and the kids with their mamas. Here are just some of my favourites.

Almost two years ago now, my best friend, Erica, gave birth to the sweetest baby girl of all time! (obviously). She is the apple of many people’s eyes and certainly my own. Her name is Elise. I call her LaLa.

I always hoped that I would have a baby at the same time as my friends. So far, at my rate, I might be lucky if my first is timed with any of my friends 4th baby! (which likely no one will have) hahaha. Yet another teenage fantasy is crushed and life goes on.

Lala is and will always be my spoiled best friends baby. As far as I am concerned, I go over to visit Erica but really I am there to play with baby girl. She is not a baby for too much longer and so it is in these moments, that I will cherish. Elise has a sweet disposition, she is careful and thoughtful and curious. She is a happy little girl with a gorgeous dimpled smile and she certainly has the ability to make my worries disappear.

I am so excited to be an auntie and watch Elise grow and learn. It is especially terrific to watch my bestie do the same alongside her. I have watched Erica fall deeper in love more than I ever have known she was capable and that is truly a joy. As Katherine Hadley once said  “The decision to have a child is to accept that your heart will forever walk about outside your body.” I don’t think anyone truly understands that feeling until they have a child of their own. I can however see how it has made my friend a wonderful mother.
