Here are more photos from yesterday – I got photo-happy all of a sudden.
Here’s E eating carrots in the kitchen. They took a realllly long time (he’s only got eight teeth).
He learned to drink from a straw at With the Grain! Un grand merci to our server Ashley (sp?) for the idea, since I’d forgotten to bring his sippy cup. (Can’t EVER remember everything.)
With Auntie Em at the With the Grain window, looking at tawhs. I mean, cars. He’s such a boy.
He’s also working on more words. My favourites right now are “applesauce” (“hep-po” is apple, and for applesauce he just adds a random extra syllable or two at the end), “woof” (more like “ufh”) and his kissing sound – he’s learned that we often say “mmwah” when we kiss him, so now he says “mmmma!” Cutiest smartiest patootie I ever gave birth to. 🙂
BTW, my least favourite of his new words is “no”. He’s says this whenever he would like me to know that another previously-edible food is no longer satisfactory to him. I knew I would someday pay for his early affability regarding solid food. Still, I wouldn’t trade him – and wouldn’t kick him out of my bed for eating Baby Mum-Mums.
