Happy Thanksgiving!

We enjoyed a relaxed thanksgiving in the new house, just the 3 of us. A friend stopped by to say hello and took some pictures. Thanks to Aunt El for the beautiful dress! Genevieve got sweet potatoes and apple sauce, but she's not quite ready for the rest of the meal. Still no teeth (or hair!), but she sure is anxious to start eating what she sees on our plate. We went out for sushi a few days ago, and it was all I could do to distract her from the pretty plates. She is a great baby though, and everyone loves to pay attention to her and try to get her to smile. I am nearly constantly stopped by strangers while we're out. This week we all came down with a stomach bug, which is no laughing matter, but she has been a saint even when feeling under the weather. I knew germs were one of the hazards of day care, so we've learned our lesson about washing our hands more. I love my job so far, which makes it almost worth it to have to be apart from her all day. Nathan is enjoying his job too, and he's now in the middle of winter land training with his novice high school boys crew. It can be a real challenge to keep them interested in the sport when they haven't ever been on the water, but he is passionate about rowing, so I think they are probably more motivated than they might otherwise be. I'm happy for him that he's getting back into a hobby, so now I just need to find the time to do something I love. My office might allow me to telecommute a day or two after I've been there a while, which would allow me to have some time to work out or take a class.

Speaking of taking classes, Vivi and I are doing a swim class. It is full of other parents and babies, and we spend most of the time getting them adjusted to being in the water and getting their faces wet. I plan to keep going with the classes until she can swim on her own.

Every day she does something new, which I call her "new trick." Usually I get really excited, and then she won't do it again for several weeks. I'm going to attempt to load a video of her learning to talk.

Interesting. I agree with you totally. Furthermore I have another point to add. I think its essential that children today have a friendly and good swim instructor to guide them along. So that they will take to the hobby with delight, rather than find it a useless skill. But then again, most kids always love swimming afterall.

What great little mimics they are. Someday you won't be able to get her to be quiet. Swimming is a very good idea--coodos to you Justine for doing it.
