Brookfield Zoo Play Date

When I was pregnant I found an online group for mothers-to-be. I was pretty active on it through my pregnancy. After we all had our babies a lot of us switched to a Facebook group since it's so much easier to access on a smart phone (not that my three year old Blackberry would know). Since making the switch I feel like we've all gotten so much closer. It's really funny to say we have 100+ friends that are going through the same things and know so much about each other without ever having met. Until yesterday, that is! The group is comprised of wonderful moms from all over the US and Canada and there are actually a handful of us from Chicago. Yesterday I had the pleasure of meeting up with four of them at the Brookfield Zoo.

Diane and Aiden, Ashley and Ellie, Elise and Ella, Rachel and Micah, me and Harry

We had a great time! This was the first time Harry had met other babies, not quite sure what he thought about them at first. Eventually they all warmed up to each other and it was cute watchimg them "interact."

All the babies we met today were born within four days of each other in the last half of December, so Harry was by far the oldest baby of the group (he's the fifth oldest out of all the babies in our FB group).

We had a really nice time together. I know a few other moms in the group are coming to town later this summer so we're all going to try and meet up again then, if not before.

It had been a few years since I'd been to the zoo so it was fun to see all the animals!

Thanks for a fun afternoon, ladies and babies!


  1. Looks like you all had a great time! I'm so jealous!

  2. Fun day. I loved seeing Harry assert his power of the other babies. And by power, all I mean is height. Atta boy.

  3. Totally jealous! So glad you guys had a fun time. I love the pictures :)

  4. So glad we got to meet you guys! We had a lot of fun! I wish Nick wouldn't have had to work so we could have stayed longer!
