On a cold (50 degrees F.) California day, Mati wears her mittens. Maybe they are gloves. No finger or thumb part. More like socks for baby hands.

Sleeping baby

Here's a cute sleeping pic from Matilda's one one-hour nap. She still sleeps on me after nursing. It's my one hour of quiet each day.

Plus slippers!

Sad hat

One too many pics and this is what we get. Such a sad hat. Once I put the camera down, her smiles returned.

Thank you

Besides slippers and Sesame Street (Mati is pointing at the TV), Matilda is thankful for her family and friends.

Happy Thanksgiving!
