1. About ten days ago, Evelyn cut her first tooth. It took us completely by surprise, but after a series of rough nights there it was, spiky and sharp and pearly white. Yesterday morning she cut its twin. Side by side, her right tooth ever so slightly taller than her left. I will miss the pure adorable that was my baby’s gummy toothless grin, but I am absolutely smitten with the new one that has replaced it.
2. Grandma is visiting! Charlotte is beside herself with excitement.
3. For the first time ever, Donald and I tried grilling asparagus with just a little bit of olive oil. It was unbelievably delicious.
4. We recently purchased six one-month-old turkey poults from a turkey farmer (rancher? breeder?) in the desert. We are hosting Thanksgiving this year and I cannot wait to see one of our birds on the table.
