Baby Arthur In California


Nine months ago, I introduced Arthur, a lovely Parisian newborn.
Now Arthur has flown to California for a vacation, with his sunscreen, summer outfits and parents in tow, and I was delighted to meet him again. The little rascal, a genuine baby King Arthur, is handsome as ever. After a snack of ladyfingers, which he gnawed on with his one and only tooth, we took him to the beach in Venice, where he discovered the sand and the ocean for the first time...
