A Visit from Dave and Larry

A Visit from Dave and Larry

My cousin Dave and Uncle Larry were in from Ohio, and we got to spend the afternoon with them. We went out to sushi and then toured Princeton campus. We had a great time. Thanks for coming out, guys! All of the photos from their […]

…and an Identical Object in Each Hand

It looks like Anna takes after her friend Joshua K (as seen here), as she now loves to crawl around with an identical object in each hand. Uncle Max got her some Melissa and Doug animal puzzles for her birthday, which she loves. Yesterday she […]

Happy Father’s Day!

Happy Father’s Day!

We had my dad over, and John (celebrating Father’s Day number two) and my dad (celebrating Father’s Day number 31) and I worked on some babyproofing while my mom played with Anna. A new outlet, disabling a glider rocker, and cabinet locks on the cabinet. Which Anna discovered, and was confused:

Here’s a video of Anna playing with her second cousin Joshua, and here’s us singing Happy Birthday to her. Anna also enjoyed playing with the wrapping about 20 times as much as the gift for, well, all of her gifts. Here’s a video of her playing with the wrapping from Grandpa Bill and Darlene.

Anna’s ONE!

Anna’s ONE!

Happy Birthday, Little Bear! Aunt Megan, who was here for the big day, helped me make a series of videos of Anna showing the words and signs she knows. Well, theoretically. “Outside words” came out the closest to what I had envisioned. Oh, and before […]
