so this baby walks into a coffeehouse…

at woodstar last night I ran into Miles (aged, I think, 11 months) and his parents (miles was attached to his father’s ventral side with a snugli.) His parents and I say hello and chat for a minute, and then everyone kind of looks at Miles, to include him in the socializing, and there’s this tiny pause, and he tips his sippy cup towards me, offering me some of his juice. The body language was unmistakable– like he was thinking “man, if my parents aren’t going to offer this chick anything to drink I guess I should.” “I’m all set, but thanks,” I said, and his father said (something like) “I think she’s good, honey.”

How polite these children are. And Ella’s downstairs now getting her picture taken…
