I met the Carter’s when I first became a mom. Elizabeth’s youngest, Margret was the same age as my only at the time, Ada! I joined a moms group and while I often felt like I couldn’t relate to many of the mom convos, Elizabeth and I connected. Ada adored her girls and I loved how she acted like they were her pretend siblings;))) I have wonderful memories if baby Ada listening intently as Laura read to her long books…while the other babies zoomed and toddled around Ada was a very attentive and cuddly audience for big sis Laura;).
As the years go on and everybody gets so busy sometimes 6 months go by before texting or visiting or touching base BUT without fail we always pick right back up where we left off. With such an ease of deep friendship, these people show absolutely no hesitation in their comfort level with how to connect with Ada. Which means a ton because a lot of kids need prompting. During their visit they all stayed with Ada…if Ada left the room they went with her, Ada and Margret and Laura walked hand in hand, they held her up when she leaned on them with all her weight from a standing position, they did a musical performance and they just spent time simply enjoying each other’s company.
Since they met as babies Margret and Ada in many ways have developed very differently BUT their hearts remain on a united path.
