Nicole was invited to her first birthday party sans Rachel. It was HER friend, not a mutual friend. This seems like a big deal to us, because Rachel has several friends she's known since birth and once Nicole was born she has kind of been invited along. She hasn't had the same kind of group cuz we don't have friends with girls her age. So, it has taken 5 years for her to aquire some friends of her own. We were curious to see how she would do in an autnomous situation without her big sister. She did fine of course.
