Before we had our 20-week ultrasound, there was much debate over whether Baby T was a boy or girl. There are dozens of (very scientific) old wive’s tales about how to determine your baby’s gender, and who wouldn’t believe all of them? But for some reason, Bart and I felt that we needed another definitive test before letting the professionals tell us, so we obviously enlisted the help of our remarkable canine, Murphy.

Bravo-cado 

When we last met our brave little avocado plant, it was growing up a storm in the sunshine on our back deck. When fall set in, we brought it inside for the winter, where it got lots of afternoon sun in our kitchen window. Recently, the Little Pit That Could is doing some very bizarre and interesting things as the saga of growing-an-avocado-plant-from-a-pit continues.
