Oct 10 – Nov 5, 2016

Mina is an incredibly feisty lady. She just doesn’t hold back! Her hair really had begun to get out of control in October. Of course we usually tame it with a little barrette, but this is what it looks like…

Vacation in Acadia

Vacation in Acadia

Mina is very excited about standing up these days. She’s officially “cruising” – meaning she creeps around the house either by pushing things so she can walk behind them, or by holding on to things and moving along. She’s still…

Vacation in Williamsburg VA

Vacation in Williamsburg VA

There won’t be any holiday travel for us this year with Little Sister coming so soon, so we took a week away in while we could. Our criteria were: a short, direct plane ride; slightly warmer temperatures; plenty of Linus-friendly…

Linus: Week 61

Linus: Week 61

It’s been a tough week for us, and you can see a bit of it on Linus’s face here. I see this look and think, “Get that camera outta my face!” But maybe I’m reading too much into it. It…

Linus: Week 59

Linus: Week 59

Yen and I have decided that we should post photos weekly if we possibly can. That should make everyone happy: he has fewer to process, I can actually remember the events in the photos, and you get to have a…

Beach Sunset

Beach Sunset

Here’s a sneak preview of our weekend on Cape Cod. We stopped at the beach one night after dinner to watch the sun set. Here Linus and Cha are checking out an airplane. Linus is terrific at spotting them. Such…

Linus - Weeks 52-53

Linus – Weeks 52-53

Looking at all of these¬†photos now, I can’t believe how much we did during these last two weeks! Linus has been using the potty regularly now for almost two months. I admit I thought Ba Noi was crazy when she…

Linus - Week 49

Linus – Week 49

Week 49 already?! Linus is growing too fast. Can’t we freeze him? We got him a couple of different sized balls to learn to kick and toss. He’s getting quite good at it, actually. Especially the tossing. He is so…

Linus - Week 48

Linus – Week 48

Linus had a very busy week, so no sense holding off on a post! First, he headed to a July 4 party hosted by our friends David and Yvonne. Linus does love a good party – after he gets over…

Linus - Weeks 45-47

Linus – Weeks 45-47

Linus had a lot of adventures during these weeks! First up, he’s really mastering walking. In this series, you can see him toddling over to Ba Noi. He’s obviously very proud of himself – and should be! We’re working with…

Photo of the Day

Photo of the Day

A sneak preview of the photos you’ll soon see from Linus’s weekend adventure. He discovered the fountain in front of the Christian Science church, and couldn’t get enough! Photo credit to our friend Neel. Don’t worry – the ones I’ll…

Mr. Linus Goes to Washington

Mr. Linus Goes to Washington

Remember a few years ago when we visited Washington and accidentally hit the cherry blossoms just right? We hoped we could manage the same thing again this year. We booked our tickets a little on the late side, thinking the…

Another Visit to the Aquarium

Another Visit to the Aquarium

We took a quick trip into Boston one rainy Sunday afternoon when there really wasn’t anything else to do. Here are Linus and Cha waiting for the train. Our destination was the aquarium, of course. They have some new creatures,…

Franklin Park Zoo

Franklin Park Zoo

After a very big lunch of seven-course beef, we headed to Franklin Park Zoo with friends. These first few photos are rather misleading, because there were not, in fact, many animals on display. Winter must be tough on zoos. They…

Drumlin Farm (now with snow)

Drumlin Farm (now with snow)

Slightly warm weather? Ok, let’s go to Drumlin Farm again! Linus put on his red pants for the occasion. You can see that the snow is starting to melt. I’m happy to report that as I write this, we have…
