Thursday, 30 January 2014: Three Hundred and Four Days Old.
Ayla and I visited one of my old school friends and her six week old baby boy today.
As we sat around the kitchen table and caught up on old times I found my heart warmed by how easy it was to talk with someone who’s known me so long.
Although my friend and I had fallen out of touch over the years (this was only our third catch up since 2005) it was our two beautiful babies who brought us together.
New life is amazing.
Ayla has changed my world – the way I see it, the way I value it and the way I live it – and it’s clear that Baby James has done the same for my friend.
My friend and I now share not only our history but our futures as well.
And although there’s thousands of kilometres between us our friendship has been refreshed as if we’d moved in next door, and I have my Baby Ayla to thank for it.
