big feats

Davis had several firsts this week. His first trip by airplane, first week at daycare, his....wait, airplane? That's right, Davis has been up to 37,000 feet and back down again. Twice! The airline even gave him a flight certificate. Last weekend we went to New York to see Francois and Severine before they left for Egypt. We had a great time visiting with old friends and making new ones. And one would have thought Davis was an experienced traveller since he didn't cry at all on the plane. Well, New York is the third state he's been to....even if we do live 5 miles from the state line. I guess he was saving his tears up for the walk to baggage claim.

For one week, Davis was the star of daycare - being the youngest one of all. The infant room teachers said everyone wanted to come visit to see and hold the new baby. We definetly got our money's worth for the week with all the extra care and attention he received outside the usual two teachers. But on Friday, I saw a new basket right beside Davis' name on the basket shelf. "Ford." I used to babysit for a family with a "Ford" at the Isle of Palms. When I asked who this child was, I was told he is a new baby who is supposed to start daycare next week. They thought he was even a few weeks younger than Davis. Well babe, your time in the spotlight was short, yet sweet. There's a new kid on the block.

We've always known Davis was destined to have big feet being part of the Trogdon and Winslett family trees. And even on Davis' birthday I noticed his feet were miniatures of Zach's. They both have a big toe that is slightly separated from the rest - great for wearing flip flops... As we were waiting for our plane at the airport, I couldn't help but to snap this picture.
