Our Baby Girl is now 10 months old, and simply blossoming this
summer of many firsts. She's starting to stand on her own, say her
first words (Ma-Ma, which not only refers to me, but also "more"),

her big brother decided for her, for Baby Girl to try out her first
taste of ice cream.
We went to Scooters, in Lakeview, simply the best Frozen Custard
establishment in the city. Fresh, top quality ingredients and

Baby Girl partook in the free Toddler Cone filled with a swirled
scoop of vanilla frozen custard. She was hesitant at first,

heaven. Her mini-cone was just the right size for her baby-sized
hands, but she ate that cone as quickly as a big girl!
