Don't Eat the Baby

From our visit with the Tyneses and their delightful progeny:

They are inspiring in how active they remain, visiting museums, zoos, plays, parks, etc., determined not to get in the habit of staying in just because they have a baby.

It was a visit made all the better by it being at the Continental, my favorite breakfast place in all of Seattle. The lovely Greek woman who runs the place (along with other family) has always reminded me of a younger version of my grandmother. But now that I was there with a baby, I could see their similarities even more clearly. She greeted the baby with as much delight as if it were her own grandchild, and did everything she could to make sure the parents had what they needed to keep the baby comfortable.

I found myself missing my babcia, but in a good way.
