Violet is easy to take places - she's done remarkably well in restaurants and cars and parties and caves and zoos and weddings and amusement parks. At the wineries this past weekend she was a big hit; everyone loved her. Now we're hoping our luck holds as we take her to watch Princeton beat Harvard this weekend - it'll be her first sporting event, and probably the first time we have her out in chilly weather for a good length of time. We're apprehensive about her first plane ride (to Orlando for Thanksgiving) - she's become very restless in our laps and it's been months since she's fallen asleep in our arms. Perhaps we're not as comfortable as her bouncy chair or the floor. And we still plan on taking her skiing this winter - she won't be skiing of course, so it'll be her first time in some sort of day-care arrangement. So far she likes strangers, but who knows what she'll be thinking in two or three months?
