Caroline EATS!

Yes, it has already been 6 months and this girl is READY to eat. I made a fairly large bowl of Earth's Best rice cereal (purhased and hand carried from Houston, TX) and breastmilk. She ate it ALL! Definitely a Morrison in that respect. Healthy appetite. Catherine really enjoyed seeing Caroline make a mess and grab the spoon from the wrong end. We reminded her that SHE did all of that and MORE when she was Caroline;s age! Catherine ran around singing "Caroline's going to eat, Caroline's going to eat!"
Caroline's chair we purchased at Babie R Us in Houston (Pasadena, actually) and it attaches right to our dining room table. Catherine had the cadillac of high chairs when we were in Virginia, but this will work just fine.

icddr, b Black and White Ball

We attended the annual ball for the icddr, b (International Center for Diarrheal Disease Research, Bangladesh) this past week-end. icddr, b is the world famous hospital known for, among other things, being the creator of the oral rehydration solution that has literally saved millions of lives. The hospital treats thousands of critically ill Bangladeshis each day and all for free. We were happy to support the hospital and to hang out with many of our friends that work at "the center". Dave enjoying the party.

All of our food was black and white (keeping with the theme) and I ate TWO of these desserts!

We don;t look too bad considering we returned from the US the day before and were still extremely jet lagged!!!

Mamoo's 100th Birthday Celebration!

What a wonderful week we had! More photos to follow soon. (Also check Robin's facebook page for photos). The 56-hour trip (yes, you read that right!) was TOTALLY worth it. It was great to see and hang out with immediate and extended family as well as lots of good friends from the past and present. Folks travelled from Texas, Virginia, North Carolina, Michigan, Ohio, Indiana, Colorado, Florida, Arkansas, Maine, Toronto and yes, Bangladesh! The banner we hand-carried from Dhaka.
