Do Not Throw Fish at the Baby

Iain is enjoying his Seattle sojourn immensely. This morning, he sampled the cherry scone at Macrina bakery, then took a wee nap in his cool baby tent (on loan from Benjamin). After waking to find Mommy peering through the mesh, he climbed into the stroller to experience the city. A brisk walk up the hill brought Iain to the Convention Center to get Mommy's OAH badge and show Mommy's advisor his 2 teeth (she was very impressed). 

Next stop: lunch at Pike Place Market. Although Lawrence, Miriam and Mommy ate oysters, crab, shrimp and scallops, Iain only got saltines, rice Chex, sweet potato fries, banana and Nutri-grain bar. Only. After lunch, Lawrence desperately tried to convince Mommy to buy him a Batman belt buckle, but Mommy resisted. "It's not professional," she said. 

Then it was food shopping - strawberries and raspberries, french bread and American cheese, milk and Greek yoghurt, apples, pears, mangoes and apricots. Miriam picked up some San Pelligrino and four bananas and we were on our way back to the condo. Iain looked very European, with a baguette sticking up out of his stroller. 

Two large coffees later (did I mention that Macrina is literally outside the door of the condo building? It is.), Mommy and Miriam rudely popped Iain back into the tent for an afternoon nap and relaxed for a nice chat. 

Next: OAH sessions, dinner, and probably more seafood.
