I have discovered a solution to all the tears that spill forth while I'm chopping onions. On Reading Rainbow, LeVar once had a cooking episode. The guest, a chef, gave LeVar sunglasses to wear while chopping the onions, and the glasses served as a barrier keeping offending vapors from his eyes. I finally tried the trick tonight. I actually wore a pair of swim goggles, and they worked!! I didn't cry!

The first birthday must be more of a milestone than I thought, because Samuel has assumed a new personality. Now, he really protests things with a defiant grunt, as if to say "How dare you remove me from my bath?" Or "I want the cookie, not the carrot!" Where did this come from? Moreover, this afternoon we were all playing in Atticus' tent. Samuel was diving in and out of the door, literally. Then, suddenly, he turned to Atticus and pounced on him, using a wrestling move he had fallen prey to so many times before. What happened to our benign little infant?
It is an entertaining change for all of us, though.
