( Daily Mail ) First Lady Melania Trump dedicated a new garden for patients at one of America’s leading children’s hospitals on Friday as she grows more comfortable in the White House role.

Patients at the Children’s National Medical Center will be able to spend time outside in a healing garden while enjoying views of the National Mall and Washington Monument from the the hospital’s new rooftop.

Melania spent the afternoon working with children as they colored a floral coloring sheet with a pink marker and bonding with a girl who was celebrating her birthday

‘My birthday was this Wednesday,’ she told the girl. The table continued to chat about birthdays, and Mrs Trump explained that her husband’s birthday is in June, and that he is 70-years-old, reported CNN.

The children all seemed to take kindly to the First Lady, and were pictured laughing and giving her hugs as they sat around the crafts table.

The group chatted about their favorite books and singers, and after several minutes of crafting, she thanked them for spending their afternoon with her. One of the young patients even gave her  the picture she drew.
