Baby Playgroup meets at Gilmore Casa

I've praying a long time to find close friends to walk alongside me in this mother journey. I have been struck lately by how God has surrounded me here in our Fresno community with so many women to lean on. I'm so blessed. We recently started a Baby Playgroup at our house with our good friends Stacie (and new boy Nathanael) and Cori (and baby Micah). We're trying to get together each week so our little ones can play, read, sing, connect and encourage our little ones to socialize.
I do a lot of play dates and activities for Meilani but this one is focusing on Giada. My baby girl is growing so quickly. She crawls and pulls herself up on furniture now. She's very comfortable on her feet and it looks like she might be an early walker like big sister Meilani. (This may not be a good thing for mama!)

Stacie's son Nathanael has been here in the U.S. 6-plus weeks now. He's adjusting well and working toward crawling too. We love watching Giada and Nathanael clap their hands together and squeal with delight.

Olivia, Mary's daughter, also came to visit for one Wednesday. Mama Mary had some relaxin' on our couch before her new baby boy arrives.

Micah Schmidt is a few months younger and growing quickly too. We love to see his smile explode. He is a lover of music. At Playgroup he tries out Giada's Baby Einstein Exersaucer. It's a hit!
