Bashful Dragon

As my French readers know (since I made it the topic of a post), we will have a baby in a few months from now. Not so long from now, in fact. We even know it's going to be a boy. I was not sure when to announce it on the blog, thought yesterday was as good a time as any (although my brother PJ spilled the beans in one of his comments). So it is my first official announcement in English. And we have started buying him clothes and plush toys, including this Jellycat dragon, all red like the dragon of Wales. According to the website, it is a Bashful Dragon and he's Hobbit friendly. Good, because our son will be smaller than a Hobbit for a while. He sure looks sweet for a dragon. But he sure is a dragon. It was not the first plush toy we bought, but my mind was set to get this one. I might be pandering to gender roles, but I thought this was fitting for a baby boy. In any case, I think I have a winner. In any case, I think Bashful Dragon (or whatever the name my son will give him) will be very much treasured.

What special news! Please accept my congratulations on the upcoming birth of your baby! The dragon is sure to become a favorite of your son's!

Also, the French post for the day caught my eye. While it has been many years since I studied French in college, I am able to understand that this is an Oreo Cake! It has to be tasty!
