High school friend John is another year older, but even more exciting is seeing baby Simon scooting around the furniture.... He's almost walking!
Hopefully for Karin's sake he will be actually walking before his sibling shows up in January.
Despite having every excuse to take it easy, Karin put on an incredible feast. Two years ago, Elizabeth first started actually eating the non-post-it note solids we tried to feed her at Karin and John's "baby party". This year, she decided that apples actually are edible even if you don't peel them first!
When Daddy was a little boy, the neighbours used to borrow him to demonstrate to their children that children really can enjoy exotic food like mushrooms. Mommy and Daddy clearly need to borrow baby Simon.
