Aizay's proposal for a new travel poster for Boston.

From the left: the Boston Children's Museum, the Harborside Hyatt, and Aizay riding the water taxi to Long Wharf.

Miss Adventure

Coraline is 9 and a half months old. She is 19-ish pounds and is at about the 65th %-ile in weight. She has slept 9 to 10 hours through the night the last 4 nights. The biggest development, however, is that she can walk! She also recently climbed out of her baby restraint exersaucer.

I think she will probably be riding a bike before Aizay since he is afraid of pedaling. Coraline, afraid? not-so-much

The library's fancy family restroom

This restroom is larger than my bedroom. I just had to strap Coraline to the wall so I could enjoy it. Also, around the corner is a nice nursing room with comfy mats in which I have inadvertently fallen asleep.

Aizay learns of his mortality

Aizay: Daddy, when will you be three?
Me: Never. I was three when I was a boy like you, but I'll never be three again.
Aizay: (silence)
Me: And after you are four, you'll never be three again either.
Aizay: (inconsolable sobs) Mommy! Mommy! Mommy!

Davis Farmland smells like fun pt. 4

Coraline is modeling her sunglasses, after her foray into the water.

Davis Farmland smells like fun, pt. 3

Aizay didn't want to take part in the splashpark fun for some reason. He decided it was more fun to put instead...until 5 minutes before they shut off the water, at which point he decided it looked fun after all. Timing, my boy, is everything.

Davis Farmland smells like fun pt. 2

Babies love water that shoots out of the ground suddenly.

Davis Farmland smells like fun, pt. 1

We bought Aizay this pony, but had to return him when we couldn't find where the batteries should be installed.

Love and Rackets

I really hope that they are always this loving, because I don't want to have to referee the "He's looking at me!" fights.

The water's fine.

Grandma, Coraline and Aizay chill out poolside.
