Some things about Jonathan

He fell asleep on our walk this morning and then slept another hour in the stroller in the living room. When I heard him stirring, I went in to find him staring sleepily into space. His eyes focused on me, and gradually, he gave me this little grin, as if to say, “Oh yeah, I’d forgotten all about you, but now that you’re here, I’m awfully glad to see you.”

He’s in the stage where he is generally happiest when he’s riding around the house on my hip, just looking at whatever is going on. This is terrible for my back, but delightful nonetheless.

Meet Cafonkey. Cow? Giraffe? Donkey? We can’t decide, but we love him. Harper was just about this age when she first met Elephant, and I’m starting to wonder who Jonathan’s very best friend will be.

Oh, yes, and this: he’s six months old. One half of a year. That’s significant, is it not? We celebrated on Tuesday with pureed carrots. It was quite the party.
