on november 8th, our close friends alison and michael stopped by our house on their way through town during a road trip to let their little angel, mae, stretch her legs.  mae elizabeth is about 4 1/2 months older than arden, and destined to be one of arden’s lifelong friends.  (a really cool thing that happened during my pregnancy was that i first felt arden kick on mae’s birthday!)  we love the mccallum family dearly, and it is simply SO MUCH FUN to see mae blossom and grow as a beautiful and perfect mix of alison and michael.  on this lovely sunday afternoon, we laid a blanket and some blocks outside in the yard, and let the girls ‘get to know each other’ a little better.  it seems one of them is already well-versed in the art of hamming it up for the camera!  

what a sweet girl….
