A guest blog entry by the one. the only. Willa-Bean.
In honor of my birthday Mom has let me write my own blog post to let you know what I've been up to in Florence. I've made a few cameo appearances in Mom's posts, but its about time I shared my own thoughts.
So here I give you a few of the "firsts" I've had in Florence.
Mom and Dad have had their share of cappuccinos, cafe Americanas, and espressos, but in my opinion nothing beats some frothy milk. Just hits the spot in the morning. Recommended by the parental's favorite barista, I'm adding it to my list of favorites.
A nice server also gave me a heel of hard bread. Best. Idea. Ever. Hours of amazing play time. Not only was it tasty, it made my four *ahem*, yes four, new teeth feel much better. I was a little dirty after, but that's what parents are for.
Mom and Dad know what to get me at dinner now.
While we're still on the subject of food, and I usually am on that subject, I have to tell you that gelato is a superb after-dinner treat. Mom and Dad keep talking about how they weren't going to give me any sweets, but I keep telling them that I'm on holiday, on my first European trip, so they give me bites of theirs.
Delicious!! My favorite has to be pistachio, although hazelnut is a close second.
I also got to ride on my first carrousel. To be honest, I'm not sure what the point was, but Mom seemed very excited to take me. She made me wave at Daddy every minute or so, but I was more interested in the other kids riding the strange decorated wheel. You have to indulge the parents from time to time I guess.
I've tried to brush up on some Italian as well.
As you can tell from my greeting, I know the word "Ciao" very well. I can even say it from time to time.
And today, I turned one-year old! Mom and Dad seemed very misty-eyed for some reason, but I've had a great day. I got a new Baby Music Set and Baby doll.
They even let me tear into some cake.
Looking forward to seeing family and friends at my "one-and-some" birthday party when I get back. Love and miss everyone!!
