sunday the 23rd of may was penny's most accomplished day so far! we started off with an almost complete mastery of the one legged bounce in her bouncy chair, followed by a picnic in the park with her friend (and potential future husband) david.
david is the first person under a year old that she has recognized and wanted to interact with in the same way she does with us - namely, try to pull pieces of your face off. david was remarkably tolerant of this. the whole time we were picnicking, penny sat up on her own - another new skill.
when we got back to brooklyn, she ate a whole bunch of rice cereal.
the key, as it turns out, is cinnamon! thanks again, binky!
of course, after so much eating, she needed a bath, and this was the first bath where she sat up and played with her bath toys.
quick lost break here, as sunday was also the broadcast of the final lost episode:
not penny's boat.
also, she wore this onsie all day:
thank you for indulging me.
after the bath, we went over to friends' pre-lost party, where penny was amused by monica,
amused by mary,
and then passed out in the most artistic way possible.
AS IF THAT WEREN'T ENOUGH - and just to make sure we would remember this day forever, she slept straight through from 10pm - 6:30am. we look forward to many more awesome days, but i'm not sure how she can top this one.
