The Keyworth Family

When I had Brayden I really wanted to find a way to make friends with other moms that had kids the same age.  I looked into Mom’s groups and a couple of classes.  I finally settled on Gymboree.  Brayden was almost six months old when we went to his first class, which involved baby massages.  I almost didn’t go back.  That kid should have been giving me a massage!  The only reason I did go back was because we happened to make friends that day with two kids that were the same age as Brayden.  One of those friends was Dakota and her mom, Heather.  Dakota is just a day younger than Brayden!  And at 6 months old they could have almost been twins, with their blonde peach fuzz and big blue eyes!

It’s been such a blessing to have my “Mommy friends”.  Our kids are so close in age that they are going through the same things.  I know I can call them when I have any problems and they will have great advice or can totally relate to what I’m going through.  We’ve shared countless play dates and good times together.  And while we no longer go to Gymboree together anymore, we are lucky enough to get together once and sometimes twice a week to let the kids run wild.  Brayden called Dakota “Cod”, which I just think is so cute!

Dakota has also recently become my new best friend.  In the kids pre preschool class she will come and make room on my lap and leave Heather sitting by herself.  I don’t think Heather likes it, but I do!  She loves to give me hugs and hold my hand and it just melts my heart.  I know if I never have a daughter I will forever have Dakota to take dress and makeup shopping and to spoil!

Heather, thank you for your friendship!  Honestly, I don’t know what I would do without you and Kathy.  You both have given me so much support and I really, really appreciate that.  I’m so glad Gymboree brought us together!  Here’s your slideshow!

  3. That little girl’s outfit is precious! And I love the way it coordinates with her parents’ outfits. Perfection! Great captures of family interaction, these will become cherished memories. I do have a question however, I’ve noticed you use a lot of couches outdoors (which I love). Are they yours or the clients? Who carries them around? Just curious. Thank for sharing!
