Yes, the baby really did eat a biscuit, extraordinary though it seems! If you will forgive me being sentimental, watching one’s baby develop truly gives one a sense of how marvellous, how complex and important, the most familiar and ordinary things are. Everything is wonderful and new as we look at it through Hugh’s eyes. Like this very handsome Stokke Tripp-Trapp chair, for example (purchased on Thursday).
Or the label of this muscial duck.
And indeed, the baby did eat a biscuit, or rather parts of biscuits on several occasions. This photo, taken when Mum was here, shows him devoting his immediate attentions to a new toy, but notice the selection of finger foods we had hopefully prepared for him.
