There have been some other new things happening lately:
Virginia seemed to be eager for for some more flavorful food. We obliged and got cooking! She has now had carrots, zucchini and bananas. She seems quite pleased with the new tastes and we are learning all the things that change (laundry, diapers!, schedule) when meals enter the routine.
We have staring contests ;)
more and more plastic
crap baby gear invades our house. Thankfully we are borrowing or have gotten all of this stuff second hand, because I loathe just about everything about these things other than the few minutes it gives me to load the dishwasher, use the bathroom, etc.
