Sedia gestatoria

Every parent has aspirations that greatly exceed their child's abilities. Due to Summer's superhuman powers, I thought I would be immune to such follies. Alas, I am not.

Summer's growth rate of late has been quite exceptional. According to published infant growth charts, however, she's actually quite normal. The accompanying photo of Summer's new sedan chair (aka "the hiking throne") shows the disconnect between my expectations and reality. Apparently, her chin is supposed to be resting above the chin rest rather than behind it. Looks like forced family fun in the woods is at least a month off.
