A girl eating potatoes

A girl eating potatoes (vidcap)Last week, Nora was particularly loquacious before lunch, so I set up the video camera on a tripod in case she did something particularly cute during her lunch. As you may have noticed, it's easier to make interview-style videos with her in her high chair because if she's on the floor, she's zooming around the house and it makes for an awkward video. Sure enough, after she'd had her fill of macaroni, she started pointing at the bookcase behind me and saying "Una niña que come patata!", I assured her that there were no girls eating potatoes on the bookshelf, but she persisted until I finally understood what she meant. You have to admit that her assessment of the situation was pretty reasonable assuming you don't remember going to the beach.
