The things we do

Have I mentioned how much I love having this child? Today we had a relatively quiet day. Mamas K and E needed to clean up (it was getting pretty unbearable around here) and Monica doesn’t know it, but she needed some down time to work on getting over this cold. Of note:

She is officially pulling herself up on all available surfaces (including this flimsy TV tray ... oy), reminding us how much more we need to baby proof.

She had a blast splashing around in one of her birthday presents - a kiddie pool.

It took her a little while to ease in, but once she was in we spent a good hour soaking in the shade.

We rounded off the day with dinner at our favorite Thai restaurant. E and I had one of our first dates here and have been regulars since. This was our first visit with child. The wait staff couldn't get enough (who can, really?)
