Ethan and I went to our very first playgroup. I love the Rivermark community, especially the mom and dad groups. Being a small community I had actually met a few of the babies before at the park or walking around the neighborhood. There were 12 other moms that attended with their babies - all ranging in age from 4 months to 7 months. Of the 12 babies, 11 were boys! Something must be in our water =).
I don't know about Ethan, but I had a good time. Ethan was a bit overwhelmed being around so many people. He didn't cry but he let me know he was a bit unhappy by squawking periodically and throwing his arms down. It was the very noisy enviroment - he is used to it just being the two of us. But he loved looking at the other babies, so hopefully with more play dates he will get used to different situations.
