This kid has been riding the subway since he was three or four months old (though this may be the first photograph of it). Today he was climbing my shoulder to peer at the subway map, so he may grow up knowing the system well enough to help me with directions. In the mean time, his favorite activities are looking at the lights and signs, and flirting with fellow passengers.

Last morning

Spending a little more time with Grandma and Grandpa before it's time to wave goodbye:


Ever since our friends the Abbotts shared Gaelic Storm's The Beggarman ( as a great song for dancing around with their daughter, we've adopted it as a regular part of our day too. The sprout recognizes it as soon as I put it on, and he gets very excited. Grandpa Scott also gets really into the silly dancing, and we all sing and jump around. :)

1st Birthday Party

An afternoon of friends, family, board books, cupcakes, a red balloon (since he loves the one in Goodnight Moon), and streamers on the beloved ceiling fan.

Painting with Beets

Here are more pictures from Grandma Pam and Grandpa Scott's visit.
Watercolor paper + beets + drool = painting!

Finger painting is extra fun when it uses bright pink produce from the Farmers' Market. (Also, when done in the bathtub for easier cleanup!)

Swim class

For the past four months we've been going to weekly baby aquatics classes at the Y, and absolutely loving it. Kick, kick, kick those little legs!

Tangerine face!

Several tangerines were sitting on the table in a basket, and he communicated his desire that we give him one (by pointing and babbling/grunting rather insistently). Oh the impatience while I peeled it!

Also in this photo is evidence of him feeding himself with a spoon (note the yogurt all over himself). He is pretty good at holding the spoon and bringing it to his mouth, but it's a very messy endeavor.
