Sophie loves playing with the toy she bought for Zoey before Zoey was born.

Sophie has specific games she plays with specific people. She butts heads (literally) with Grandpa Gebhart. She zaps fingertips with Grandpa Uhl. And with Greg, it’s the don’t-let-him-eat-my-feet game.

It was so strange—and fun—to spend a Saturday evening with friends I’ve spent so many Saturday evenings with before with babies. Often when we’d get together with friends this past year we’d be the only ones with a child—the only ones cradling, shushing, tickling, chasing, feeding, burping, changing, carrying. I love that it’s a shared experience now.
