"One day it occurred to me that it had been many years since the world had been afforded the spectacle of a man adventurous enough to undertake a journey through Germany on foot. After much thought, I decided that I was a person fitted to furnish to mankind this spectacle. So I determined to do it. This was in March, 1878." Mark Twain, A Tramp Abroad


Bundled Up

Fall has arrived, and with fall comes cooler temperatures. Thus the little one had to be introduced to a new clothing phenomenom--THE HAT.

Penelope had a bit of a difficult time with the hat, especially because this particular hat is a tad too big (or perhaps her head is a tad too small). With every wiggle of her head the hat creeped further and further down until the world suddenly went black.

This became a handy way for the little one to sleep while in the stroller and on the go, but it became increasingly annoying for the parents to continue to adjust the hat while the little one was awake. So we have decided to reitre this hat until it is a better fit.

In the meantime, the temperatures have grown so cold that a full array of winter clothing is in order, so we brought out the full onslaught of winter clothes.

Here is Penelope all ready for a walk to the store. She has on a shirt, sweater, tights, pants, shoes, coat, mittens, hat, and a hood. She was a little confused by her reduced mobility with all of the layers.

This is the "why is mommy torturing me?" look.

And the "where did my hands disappear to?" look.

And the "enough pictures mom, let's get this show on the road!" look.

Now it takes us ten times as long to get ready, but at least the little one is nice and toasty!
