She’s still somewhat content to sit peacefully, but this weekend we found little Flora stuck under the table–she had backed in because she only moves in reverse to date.  Her big sister, always busy creating cozy yet fragile little hideaways for her creatures, does not realize the havoc that awaits, the treasured possessions about to be baby-handled, the structures toppled, and her parents have begun to look around at the wood burning stove, the stairs, the house perched on the hillside with new eyes.  No rush, Flo, no rush at all.

Way to go, Flora!

Mon Hérisson

Tillie’s learning curve for french has arced upwards really quickly recently.  All of a sudden, she is happy to chat in either language, and if you ask her a question in french, she answers in french, too.  I suspect that this is mostly due to the fact that, as far as I can tell, she and her friends basically sing all day at crêche. So, when she comes home, she sings the new songs she’s learned for us.  Her current favorite is mon hérisson (recorded surreptitiously while she was singing to herself in bed while “reading” one of her books):

For those whose knowledge of the french children’s music canon is about where ours was a few months ago, here is a more traditional rendition of the same song:

haircut



After months of pulling out barrettes and not being able to see through her dangling locks, Til consented to bangs today.  I think her stylist did a great job, no?

being two in Paris has its benefits


Next time one of you poop in the potty at our house, you too can ride a horse at Luxembourg Gardens.

This sums up yesterday’s celebration pretty well.

Time for a nap, but more to follow.
