It's Called "PlayDate"

Hi friends,
This morning my Mommy took me on my very first play date. A play date is a prearranged meeting when mothers of newborn babies spend time together. (I'm not sure if these are reserved for newborn kids or if they are available for all kids.)
This play date was with Boruch Shneur, my newest friend. Boruch Shneur also has Downs-syndrome and he is one month (five weeks to be exact) older than me.

Well what should I say? We had a pretty good time getting to know each other.

Then Mom said, "Hey look at the camera guys!"

Before long we were deeply involved in quite an animated discussion!

Y'know for the first time ever in my life I felt that I had met someone I could really talk to. We understand each other, we are almost exactly the same. Here I'll show you what I mean. Watch as we look at each other while our heads bob up and down almost like a dance!

Before we knew it it was time to take leave of my new found friend and we parted ways with one final, warm handshake - I'm going to miss you, I said.

Back at home all that Mommy and me have left are the great memories of fun times... and we just can't stop talking about them.
I had so much fun on this first play date that Mommy arranged another one for me this time I'm going to spend an hour with Avremel - the son of my Mommy's old classmate.

Yeah we've met before. So, I'll keep you abreast of any developments... Don't miss me too much, or we'll have to make a play date!

You must fix Mendele a date with a girl;), but if not, Mendele is so cute that he sometimes looks more like a girl... specially when he plays with a boy...and so we have a couple meeting! Cutey cute!
