Play date

November 3, 2008

En route to Chicago last week, we traveled (detoured, honestly) by way of Indiana, where one of our best friends from college lives with her husband, daughter Ellen and soon-to-be son (he debuts in February). Our stay with the Muellers was brief but long enough for us to catch up, have our usual pleasantly sarcastic conversation, and watch Jack’s first playdate with Ellen (in fact, his first playdate ever), wherein he looked, smiled and laughed at her adoringly, and she showered him with toys.

Ellen, who’s almost 2, woke in the middle of the night, evidently thinking of Jack. The Muellers reported that she was asking for the baby, and only after she’d returned to the site of their last encounter and discovered him gone (as in not playing, I think) would she go back to sleep.

I can tell she’s destined to be a happy big sister. And now we know there will be at least there will be one person in the house excited about getting up in the middle of the night to take care of the new baby.
