Blogger/Twitter Moms Unite!

I met up with some local blogger/twitter moms today for a cookie exchange and playdate! It was so much fun!

Tracy, Amy, Steph, Cari, Amy, and I all have baby girls close in age. Another Amy was supposed to join us (also with a baby girl), but her car broke down. This was my first time meeting Steph, and Cari brought her friend, Amy, for us to meet. They were so nice!

It's funny how much we have in common! As I mentioned, we all have baby girls. Lily is the youngest, and Steph's Lily is the oldest. Two ladies named Steph/Stef both with babies named Lily, three girls named Amy, and a few of us have older boys as well!

I've known Tracy for almost 12 years, and I'm so glad she invited me to the last playdate! We all began talking on twitter and through blogs, and I feel so lucky to know these ladies in real life now!

Amy hosted the playdate/cookie exchange at her house. The babies had a great time tearing up the place...or as my husband likes to say, causing a toynado!

There were so many girls in the room. Poor Logan was the only boy and his face said it all!

While the kids played, we talked, and had tacos for lunch. Afterward, we attempted a Santa hat picture with all the babies. Yeah. That didn't go so well. Logan ran off, Charlotte leaped into Tracy's arms, and the rest of the babies started screaming. (Although check out Steph's Lily. How cute is she?!?)

My sweet girl loves babies. I lovingly refer to her as the baby wrangler! She's such a big help!

After the pictures, we attempted a book exchange for the kids!

Today was a lot of fun, and all the baby girls (and Logan and Lexie!) are so adorable!!! I hope they continue to have fun together as they grow up!

After so much excitement, all the babies began to meltdown. It didn't take long for Lily to fall asleep! I have a feeling Victoria, Bre, Harper, Lily, and Charlotte soon followed!

Before leaving, we exchanged cookies and Amy handed out little stockings to the kids. She had them all strung up along the sliding glass door. It was so cute, but I didn't think to take a picture!

I have to say, I've been snacking on those delicious cookies all night! Thanks for hosting, Amy! I can't wait to see everybody again!

  12. That is so cool you all got together. I've never met any of my blog friends in "real" life. I LOVE the pics on the couch. It's not nice to laugh at crying babies, but I couldn't help it! Too funny.
