Happy Half Birthday

Six months old! To celebrate we had a book-themed half-birthday dinner, with reading aloud at the table. The meal included chicken soup with rice (from the Maurice Sendak book Chicken Soup with Rice), a big leafy salad and lots of other items from The Very Hungry Caterpillar, green eggs and ham (from Green Eggs and Ham, of course) and a Cat in the Hat hat cake. The hat cake even lived up to the chaotic spirit of Thing 1 and Thing 2 and toppled over long before dessert!

Bath time

Several generations have now taken baths in Great Grandma Marilyn and Great Grandpa Sam's kitchen sink! The newest young'un especially enjoyed the toy boats.

He has been in ocean and river (and of course bath) water before, but this was the first real chance to swim in a pool, and he loved it!
