On her eight month birthday today (Gasp!), Charlotte spent yet another hot summer day playing with the same old toys indoors. She may be a child genius, but she doesn’t have the life experience to realize that, as far as birthdays go, this one was pretty yawn-worthy.

2) Later, she bonked her forehead with her toy, but was consoled by the wonders of an orange spoon.
