We spent Thanksgiving with Aunt Emily and Uncle Jonathan. Phœbe got to model both her holiday outfits. She went home with some lovely additions to her library, including a copy of Playful Bunny signed by accomplished author Kim Zarins.

The blanket-turned-burp cloth is by Dwell Studio for Target (it's the Olivia pattern). I'm pretty sure we got three of these for less than $10. On Friday we happened past a shop that had some items from the Dwell Studio Not-For-Target collection, which were far more expensive and totally not as cute!

Pub Quiz

Phœbe attended her first pub quiz at O'Brien's. She mostly slept through the quiz, and some of her teammates felt she should have been contributing more. Nevertheless, we placed second -- not too shabby for her first time. That gives her something to work towards for next time.

The lovely handmade blanket in the last two pictures came from quizbowl champions Rob and Emily. We thought it would keep Phoebe warm and bring her good luck at her first trivia event.

The sling is the Baby Pouch, which is a great alternative to lugging Phœbe around in the heavy, awkward baby bucket.

Phœbe celebrated her four-week birthday with an outing to Mr. Cecil's California Ribs. The blanket was knitted especially for her by Mimi (Aunt Barb).
