Eleanor’s First Playdate!

Posted by: Maggie

Hey everybody Josh wrote his first post, which is good because I wasn’t there so my recollections would likely be unreliable:

On Monday, Eleanor had her very first playdate with baby colleague, Kaitlyn Ramirez. Kaitlyn is the young progeny of Christina and Greg, of the Ramirez Family fame. Christina is my co-worker at the School of Public Policy and a fellow baby-haver. Kaitlyn was actually born only two days before Eleanor, so its almost like they are the same baby.

We were curious to see what two babies almost the exact same age would do when placed in the same room.

The answer: cry!

Actually, Eleanor was relatively fuss-free, but only because she was a guest. We had a long talk in the car ride over about appropriate behavior when visiting friends. For some reason, she is much more polite for friends and family than she is for mommy and daddy. I haven’t decided if this is a good thing or not. Eleanor and Kaitlyn seemed interested in each other, both watching carefully when the other was occupied elsewhere. But they seemed to really connect during the photo shoot on the couch, where they agreed that “this was B.S.”

Eleanor was charmed by Kaitlyn’s bumbo seat and crazy moose, but was most impressed with the giant television. She told me on the ride home that she thought it was time to upgrade. I said we’d get a new t.v. when she gets a job.
