In the park with DaddyMy father has sent me some photos he took during his recent visit. They provide a pretty good snapshot of our daily routines, from the playground to the local grocery store, to evening bath time. It seems amazing to me that just ten days ago we had Nora in her winter coat and today she’s sweating in the lightest white linen suit.
Reading with Grandma

Reading with Grandma. On the last page of the That’s Not My Baby book, there’s a mirror, which always causes Narcissus Nora to kiss her reflection. It’s pretty adorable.

Out for a walk in the countryside.

In the park with Daddy

At the playground. I love Nora’s coy look in this photo. You can see all those goldilocks we chopped off.

Ready to catch her when she falls.

Waiting her turn

Waiting somewhat patiently for Denise, a longtime “classmate” at daycare, to clear the slide.

Bruno, Paul and Andrés

My father at the grocery store with Bruno and Andrés.

Nora and Tona

Nora’s favorite fruitmonger, Tona. Her dangling necklaces and glasses are always entertaining.

Nora with Andrés

Nora feels really comfortable with Andrés, more so than with the other people at the store.

With Mommy and Daddy

At home with Mommy and Daddy, with the carpet turned up for more walker space.

Bath time

And finally bath time before bedtime.

  • How often do your parents visit, on average? Mine come to us two or three times a year (and we go there a couple of times a year) but they’re a LOT closer.

    • When it was just their only child in Europe, it was once per year. But when their only granddaughter arrived last year, they came three times in 2009. We usually go visit them once a year.

  • Nora is adorable! She must get a lot of attention for her goldilocks (and her blue eyes).
