Maeve’s First Meal

Saturday, December 08, 2012

We gave Maeve rice cereal mixed with breast milk for her first food. She ate it ravenously, but would squeal when the spoon was taken away - likely because she thought it was just small spoonfuls of breast milk. Baby steps. Oona was excited to help, as she's patiently been waiting for months to share her meals with Maeve!

Here Comes the Tree

Thursday, December 06, 2012

Christmas is in the air! And it's a family affair. Oona embraced the spirit of christmas tree decorating - her unique style of ornament clustering is purely her own (just how many disco balls can you fit on one branch?). Ammon illuminated our casa and Maeve enjoyed the twinkling lights. Laura and Oona baked the first (but not last) batch of Christmas sugar cookies. We are feeling pretty grateful to be experiencing the magic of Christmas through the eyes of our children.

Happy Turkey Day

Thursday, November 22, 2012

We had Thanksgiving in Santa Cruz this year with the Plagemans and the Kahns. We were a small group but held those who couldn't be with us closely in our hearts. Perfect warm weather, music, biking, eating and Maeve-gazing. A lovely time had by all!

  • Almost too big for the WeeRider. Might be the last ride.

  • Baba, Oona and Tutu making music together

  • Family tree

All Smiles

Wednesday, November 14, 2012

Maeve seems to get more smiley every day. She loves attention and holds you in her gaze, returning a big smile whenever she gets one.

T-Pa’s Birthday

Sunday, November 11, 2012

Oona had a blast helping frost the chocolate cake at T-Pa and K-Ma's house.

Bloomington Indiana

Friday, November 02, 2012

Mom, Dad and Maeve travelled to Bloomington, Indiana for Laura's art exhibition at Pictura Gallery. Oona stayed home with Grammy and Bampa to play.

  • Laura and Maeve at the opening reception.

  • Maeve's first studio visit! Artists Osamu James Nakagawa, Laura, Maeve and Adam Thorman at James' studio at Indiana University.

Montclair Railroad Trail

Saturday, October 06, 2012

Just behind Montclair Village there's a paved trail that follows an old railroad route. It's a nice short walk for a toddler. We once noticed some BMX bike kids running up a hill along the path. Oona and I went to investigate and found an impressive bike jump course. Oona will be back as soon as she learns how to use her brakes wink

Quattro Mesi

Thursday, October 04, 2012

Maeve is four months old! She's beginning to roll and enjoys tummy time much more than her sister ever did (Oona loved to scoot on her back). Her hands are getting good at grasping - especially her feet, which she promptly puts in her mouth.
