Pajama Day, Croissant Moon

Saturday, January 31st, 2009

Yesterday was Pajama Day in the Green Door Room — Henrietta was excited about it all day. She wore her doggy pajamas, and was excited to see that one of her friends and one of her teachers had doggies too. As we were leaving day care in the evening, she spotted a sliver of moon […]

Patio Pink?!?

Thursday, October 30th, 2008

Henrietta was playing with an inflatable head of barley (a promo from a beer event), and declared its name to be “Patio Pink.” As in, “Patio Pink fell on the floor!” No idea where that one came from! Here she is in the gym at day care—she had just declared that she was “going to […]

Sunday, October 19th, 2008

Staggering steps

Monday, August 27th, 2007

This weekend we got the first of what might be described as actual steps. Henrietta let go of one object (chair, table) and made her way, unsupported, to another object (chair, Mom, Dad). Woo! It begins! She was also standing unsupported and dancing, clapping, and patting her tummy. And drinking water. Incroyable! In non-Henrietta news, […]
