I’m not sure if I should be concerned, relieved,  or proud that this was the first book my daughter pulled off the bookshelf.

    when did you have a baby!! CONGRATS!!
    I’d say she’s a chip of the old block…if her first words are Ludwigia peruviana, you know you’ve got a “mini-you'”

      I’m working on getting the first word to be botanically oriented, so I tend to wander around with here rattling off Latin names constantly. We actually just got back from a morning foray at the UC Berkeley botanical garden. .

      She’s about 5.5 months old. Born at the end of last July. Here’s a post with a few photos of here in her earlier days:

    Looks like she takes after dad alright! Straight for the interesting plants 😉

      She’s in that phase where everything she gets her hands on goes straight into her mouth to chew, so we’re taking the plant education process methodically, observing some plants from a safe distance.

        WISE move! 😉 My daughter ate soil, snails and lots of other unsavoury things but at least we know which plants we should steer them clear of 😉
