After playing we headed back to our house for pizza and cake and quality time with the giraffe. It was a fantastic day! As you can see, though, Colin wasn’t entirely on board with the whole “let people sing to me while I wait for that cake over there to be MINE” thing.
Our departure from Houston happened to coincide with N2K (Nora’s 2,000th day on Earth) so right before we left, we had an N2K/farewell party for Nora and a few of her friends that featured two of our favorite things: a splash park and cookies from Paulie’s
Colin loves black beans which, for him, are a much more immersive experience than beans are for you mere mortals. Note the fancy plate he’s using. We bought it because its unique design and non-skid edge make it more difficult for the child to turn over. So much more difficult that he almost didn’t use a single fluid motion flipping the plate upside down and flinging it off the table the first time we put it down in front of him.
We’ve noted the resemblance between Nora and Colin, but it goes deeper than mere looks — both eat their chocolate chip cookies so that the chocolate ends up all over their faces! To be fair, Colin didn’t really eat his (er. . .my) cookie, he just licked it. Not sure that an oatmeal walnut chocolate chip cookie is the ideal first solid food for the baby, though given his DNA it’s definitely within the realm of possibility.
