This week, Opal started to hang out in some of the her chairs and other devices more than she has in the past. She's growing up and getting independent! She also attended an event her mom was reading at on the occasion of Armenian Genocide Remembrance Day (she waited until the fourth of five readers to lose it!), hung out with her grandparents, attended a new moms group run by a postpartum doula, and met her baby friend, Sebastian, who was born only two days after her. Sebastian is a sweet chill baby; hopefully Opal learned a little bit about hanging out without freaking out from his example! We sat in Washington Square Park with some ice cream after the visit and had a great time.
