"A portrait of Avienne once a week, every week, in 2013."

Onze :: Enjoying a good read while we enjoy a good meal.

It's a funny thing about being a first-time parent - it's a lot of trial and error, but once you've figured your kid out, things seem to just become second nature. Lately, I feel like we're all on the same page when it comes to going out to eat or hanging out with friends. Gui and I know what times are good for our little firecracker and when we should steer clear of public venues lest other patrons report hearing-loss after Avienne showcases one of her trademark "sleepy screams." If she happens to become unhappy while we're out, we go through our bag of tricks like a well-played symphony, starting with a chorus of toys, ending with more tried-and-true distractions as the situation deems necessary. Last week, we were pretty lucky and spent some really easy-going evenings enjoying dinner out with our rather well-behaved little girl, and I'm really hoping it's a sign of things to come. [Fingers tightly crossed.]
