Today Corinne is seven months old! It is also her first Patriot''s Day. We are fortunate enough to live in Lexington, quite an important town in regards to our nation''s history, so today we walked 1.5 miles down our street to watch the Patriot''s Day Parade!!! Corinne wore protective headphones to ensure that her delicate ears weren''t harmed by the loud noises often associated with parades, and she looked very stylish.
This weekend was also special because Topher''s brother, Jeffrey a.k.a. Uncle Jeff, came for a visit! He had a business meeting today in Waltham, so he stayed with us last night and also joined us for the parade before leaving for home. Corinne and I are going to North Carolina at the end of June to visit Nana, as well as Uncle Jeff, Aunt Angela, and Corinne''s cousins Haden and Dawson. We can''t wait!
The past ten days have been busy ones here at the White house. Corinne has served as a research subject in two trials at the Harvard Lab for Developmental Studies (during one of which she was videotaped for a BBC special, slated to air in the United Kingdom in September). She also had a play date with her BFF Sabine, met her Auntie Neenie (Topher''s sister-in-law Deneen), and took in the sights and sounds of Faneuil Hall from the strategic vantage point of the Ergo carrier, which Mommy and Daddy were obliged to wear, alternatively, all afternoon. There are some pictures commemorating these events for your viewing pleasure.
Corinne visited the doctor today, because she''s had a runny nose since yesterday. I was pretty convinced that said symptom was due to teething, but she developed a cough, so I decided it was better to be safe than sorry. The doctor confirmed what I suspected, that the coughing was due to nasal drainage and not respiratory congestion, so we are continuing to treat her symptoms, and hopefully she will be all better soon. Corinne has been a little trooper through it all!
