Baby Carrots

The afternoon snack was cooked and chilled baby carrots. After insisting that all the carrots should be arranged on her tray at the same time (rather than one by one as the adults usually do it) Mabel Watson Payne gradually proceeded to eat them, first a bite from one, then a bite from another, until they were all gone.

Later on we put Baby Penelope to bed about fifteen times, going through the whole ritual of wrapping her up and rocking her and and then carefully putting her down asleep in the crib. As soon as we put her to bed we would turn around and wake her up, and then start all over.
