Then we headed over to a church park downtown to meet up with Jenna and her family. Jenna and I went to Meredith together and she and her husband moved to New Bern a few years ago. Jenna and I usually run into each other at the women's center in awkward situations! Anyways, Jenna has 2 children - Jack and Mary Walter. MW and Claire were due 2 weeks apart. So technically, in corrected age terms, Claire and MW are both about 7 months old. So it was interesting to compare Claire to Mary Walter as if they should be on the same developmental levels.
This was Claire's first time (for me) in a swing. She wasn't so sure about it and only lasted a few minutes. She and Jack had fun though!
We then decided it was too hot to swing and found some shade for the girls to play in. We had a lot of fun at our official first play date! We decided next time to have it inside though!
And Claire did another "first" this weekend! She rolled from her back to her belly! And then just kept rolling over and over. She did it for a while on Sunday. We better watch out because she will be rolling all over the place. She no longer stays in one place on the floor. She is proud of herself and her new trick. Claire and Fuzz were practicing rolling over together. He was showing her how to do it!
Sunday evening, Connor and Anna came over and we all swam for a little while. Connor and Claire really got to play a little in the pool and they really like each other. It was fun to see Claire interacting with other kids this weekend. It's made me realize we need to do it more.
So needless to say, we are all worn out from a great weekend. Oh, by the way, Trent and I had a date night out to Chef and the Farmer (www.chefandthefarmer.com). If you haven't been there and live in the Kinston area, you need to go there. It is a great restaurant with great food (of course - they use our organic vegetables!). They use mainly all local foods to prepare their seasonal dishes. It is a great experience with awesome food! The chef is a good friend and she just had twins this spring - we can't wait to get them together with Claire!
