Which is why it’s so nice to have him tucked under a lovely new blanket from our friend Lauren. Since she introduced Sydney and me during our junior year of college, she probably feels particularly responsible for the little one’s being here. Nathaniel is quite grateful for a blanket of his very own, particularly since we weren’t able to bring many with us to the UK and because I recently (unthinkingly) took him out to the park when he was wrapped in his sister’s pink-flowered blanket. As you can see from his expression in the picture above (“Really, Mother.”) he was mortified.
Yes, the pacifier is currently quite important for keeping him happy. Yes, that furrowed brow is him happy.
