Although I have been a bit delinquent I think it’s important to note that we started Grace on rice cereal, per the suggestion of Super Baby Foods, last month. She’s really groovin’ on food thing, and if you don’t get it to her fast enough, she actually cries. My happy baby cries! We so rarely hear her cry that we almost think it’s cute when she does. And we usually rush to soothe her and are quickly rewarded with another smile, in the midst of tears. What a pleasure compliant children are!
While we were in India, Isabelle dumped out most of the rice cereal I had brought for Grace, so we decided to introduce bananas into her diet. And she loves her some bananas too! Although she was constipated for several days AFTER her first couple banana meals, everything is now flowing as it should be and our baby is a happy eater.
Grace also cut her first two teeth while she was in India! Everyone kept calling her “laughing doll.” And since she is THE white grandchild, she looks like a vanilla ice cream cone in the midst of chocolate! It was so fun to introduce her to everyone, and especially to her Grandparents!
Conrad’s brother and sister-in-law, Alfred and Sudha are Grace’s Godparents. We asked Alfred right after Grace was born. In the course of conversation during our trip (nearly 6 months after Grace’s birth), Sudha came to find out that she was Grace’s God mother for the first time. Apparently, Alfred had never shared that fact with his wife. What is it with men and communication? We laughed about the Michael brothers and wondered WHAT they actually talk about when they talk.
