Luca has been experimenting with utensils lately--today I gave him the last bit of his yogurt to try for himself--this was the result! It was even in his ear! But, he seems pleased with himself, does he not?

We recently hosted Nonna, Aunt Alessia, Ethan, and Lucia here in Chicago. Nonna thought it would be a great idea to get them all bundled up and go to the Botanic Gardens. It would have been, if it was not 29 degrees with 25 mph wind gusts. They were pretty cold!
We took shelter from the wind in the English garden. Don't the kids look thrilled?
One of the games at the shower was to sculpt play-doh babies. Here are the results:
From left to right:
Karen's: silliest, I think
Becky's: won most realistic--but she IS a pediatrician--she even put genitalia on the baby!
Mine: most disturbing (see the paddle-hands?)
Amanda's: most creative
Norah recently had pajama day at school, and she was very excited to wear her special pony pajamas.
Well, we looked for her flashlight for days before this event, and alas, we couldn't find it. So, I gave her Luke's identical (but blue) flashlight to bring. Luke's flashlight is better than NO flashlight, right?
She pouted about it for a good 15 minutes when she got there (as evidenced by her long face in this photo), but by the end of the day, Mrs. Bauer said that she had told everyone that it was her brother's SPECIAL flashlight and that she had to take good care of it!
