Turning Japanese? I Really Think So

Here is my baby eating rice with chopsticks. Thomas and I were having dinner together and he wanted to eat my food just like I was. He had to have a pair of chopsticks for each hand and held both sticks together in his fist, but he did manage to get one grain at a time to stick to the sticks and go into his mouth. I've seen adults do about as well. To complete the scene, he also had some miso soup in a sippy cup. Babies are so cool.

At a consignment sale yesterday, I found a board book about sushi. I like this line "Miso in my sippy cup, tofu in my bowl. Crab and avocado fill my California roll." He does like tofu. Maybe a trip to the sushi buffet is in our future.

Would You Like Some Ham with Those Eggs?

Stupid Smart Baby

In the last week or so, Thomas has figured out:

* how to turn the fan off when it is hot and on when it is cold.

* how to lock the screen door when I go to the laundry room.

* how to shut the front door to keep any fresh air from coming in.
and worst of all
* that chocolate is really, really good.

Thomas's First Haircut

In honor of turning one and a half, I gave Thomas his first haircut. He got much blonder. Suddenly, he's looking more and more like a little boy instead of a baby.
