Time for his Close-Up

I went a little crazy the past couple of weeks, taking lots of close-ups of Nico.  So I figured I’d post the February photos we’ve got so far before another backlog starts.  (Yes, I know I still need to do November and December’s photos!  They’re coming…I promise!) Here’s your glimpse of Nico almost in real-time — [...]

Happy Birthday, Baby Nico!

December was a very full birthday month for the little Monkey.  We figured that a kid whose birth spanned 3 days (in terms of date, not in terms of actual length) deserved 3 days’ worth of parties.  And that’s what he got! We started out with a small dinner party on his actual birthday.  Jenny [...]

Merry Christmas!

OK, so it’s almost New Year’s, but this is a post linking to our Christmas photos.  I’m going to be updating our photos in reverse chronological order (all the way back to my dad’s 70th birthday in November), so the holiday greetings will be even more incongruous as time goes on.  Christmas has been fun so [...]

First Half of September

A lot has happened so far in September and a lot more is about to happen, so I wanted to get ahead of the curve and post these photos from the first two weeks. Nico had his 9 month visit this month, complete with vaccines for 5 diseases (diptheria, tetanus, whooping cough, HiB and polio).  [...]

The Rest of August

The Cape Charles and August Odyssey photos that we’ve already posted covered the first half of the month.  This slide show rounds out the month with a bunch of solo shots of Nico, plus our trip to Pittsburgh for Lisa’s bat mitzvah and the spice rack Frank built to house all of the Penzey’s goodness [...]

Cape Charles Vacation

After we had so much fun last year in Sperryville, VA with the Somobrights and Hjeltaks, we decided to take another group vacation — this time to Cape Charles, VA.  Cape Charles is a sleepy little town at the southern tip of the Delmarva Peninsula.  It was formed in the 1880s when an enterprising duo [...]

How can June be over already?

Wasn’t Nico just born?  Has it really been almost 7 months???  Time is just flying and June really whizzed by.  I ended up taking a bunch of photos and videos — probably because I felt so guilty about not taking many in April and May.  But I was actually busier in June than in either [...]

Mother’s Day

Just in time for Father’s Day…here are photos from my first Mother’s Day.  These were supposed to be included in yesterday’s slide show, but there was some sort of glitch so here they are as their very own presentation.  I also learned a lesson — when I realized that a bunch of photos had been [...]
