1) Our daughter REALLY likes mashed carrots and turnips. Erin and I still consider ourselves faux New-Englanders, but I think this means Blaise is officially native.
2) Leila the cat will tolerate having her face grabbed by a curious baby for a surprisingly long time.
3) Babies really like looking at other babies, even over Skype. We learned this from watching Blaise talk with her friend Erin in Paris...we are convinced they were conspiring to paint the town red once they end up on the same continent. A side note: Blaise has now seen England and France thanks to the series of tubes that is the internet.
4) Pureed squash and apple is fine and all, but hot coffee, red wine, chocolate pie, and other things that are dangerous to people and their nice clothes are much more exciting.
Happy Thanksgiving everyone!
