Friends from the beginning

Mozi Esme tagged me for a meme to go to my fourth folder and pull out the fourth picture in it. Because my blog is short on inspiration lately, I was thankful to have something to post! I may even do another meme tomorrow! Oops, should I tell you that in advance? Well, I hope you stop by anyway because it's fun.

The fourth picture in my fourth folder isn't a great photo -- just a snapshot -- but I couldn't part with it.

This is Fly (on the right) and his friend Lance as babies. I think this was the first outing my friend Guinevere and I had after Lance was born -- we took the boys for a walk in the park. I think we talked about losing weight and 529 college plans. Considering we were both new moms, we probably also talked about poop. (Don't all new moms talk about poop?!)

Just for comparison, here are the boys last week.

They've grown up together since day one -- well, actually day two -- Fly visited Lance in the hospital the day after he was born! And now that Lance comes to spend the day with us twice a week, the boys have gotten even closer. They even ask for each other sometimes when they're apart.

And you know what, I think Guinevere and I still talk about poop!

If you need some bloggy inspiration, I tag you!

I have one dear friend who I have known since I was 5 days old!

That's 30 years of friendship. Now, with her 4 kids and my 3 ... we have quite a good time when, on the rare occasion, we can get together :)

yes, moms of kids young and old talk about poop! It's sad but true.

I don't think it's just new moms. I know some old pros who jump right in there anytime the poop subject comes up.

Ah yes, the poop talk. I know it well. We have several friends who have babies that are within a few weeks of Sophie and it has been so amazing to watch them growing together.

So cute to see them so big now!

Am I the only idiot who doesn't know what a "fourth folder" is?

That is so sweet. You know I could tell which was Fly in the baby picture. His face has not changed - still so very cute.

Thanks for the tag! I'll have to file this one away, in case I happen to need it.

The same thing happens with dog owners, the talking about poop thing. But it also diverges into "She really likes to eat it and roll in it, she thinks it is fine perfume or something..."

What great photos. They grow so quickly, don't they. Hopefully Fly and Lance will be friends forever. I've had my best friend since 1st grade.

Every time Lance sees a red car anywhere, he says your name!
