This week he: went to a space themed birthday party with daddy and became obsessed with rockets and planets / ate lots of cucumbers and carrots and tomatoes, straight from the garden / got the cutest mini ice cream cone from Lizzie's in Harvard Square, he was thrilled (yes, we need an ice cream intervention!) / picked out a present for his sister's birthday all by himself / peed pretty much any and everywhere. we are really making big progress in that area... sigh.
This week she: cut her third tooth (top middle) with the fourth close behind / started to use sign language to say 'all done' when she wants out of her high chair / learned to stand with so much confidence that walking feels really close / started trying to put on her own shoes (she is so going to lap her brother on independence) / ate a mountain of the spiciest bread sticks and was totally unfazed, we were just amazed. hope the lack of pickiness carries through to toddlerhood.
*These pictures are from my iPhone (and are also more like a week and a half ago, I cheated!). I continue to debate the trusty iPhone as camera, and really prefer not to use it for this series. On the other hand, it is crazy hard to lug around a camera when you are also carrying beach gear, snacks, and a baby... and I loved this evening at Walden Pond so much that I decided to include these :)
