Hiking

A couple of videos from our little hike this weekend. We definitely need to take them out for hikes more often. As you’ll see, Linus really enjoys it.

Look, Mommy. No feet!

Our little daredevil has just started to hold his feet up as he costs along. He’s so fast! Notice about halfway through when he screeches to a halt. That’s what he does when he sees a car. Safety first!

Ticklish Mina

Mina is so ticklish! I don’t remember Linus developing a “tickle spot” quite this early, but she has one under her collarbone!

Still Biking

Linus is getting even better at biking. Check him out around 1:10, when he really gets moving and his little feet barely touch the ground – just enough to propel him forward.

Mina Laughs

Our little lady started laughing this week. Yen hadn’t heard it, and I hadn’t managed to get it on video. And then we got this surprise in the middle of dinner.

Dubba doo?

This is a silly little video of nothing, really, but I wanted to capture this funny babbling that Linus has been doing lately the fact that he climbs onto Mina’s little play area is just a bonus. I’ll translate: The…

Biking

Have you ever seen anyone so happy to be riding a bike? Make sure you turn the sound up, both so you can hear him laughing and for his little song: “duck-a-duck-a-duck-a-duck!”

Linus Entertains Mina

Linus isn’t exactly Mina’s biggest fan, but occasionally he can be very sweet with her – or at least tolerant (which is all I really ask). Here’s one of those moments.

March 11, 2016

Little Mina is two months old now! I can’t believe how quickly the time passes. It feels like just yesterday that a nurse set her on my chest just as she was born, and I marveled at how very solid…

Sledding

We dinner get nearly as much snow as they originally predicted – just a light dusting. Still, the boys decided to make the best of it.

Trains

I read an article yesterday on the importance of playing with low-tech toys with your kids – as in, get down on the floor and play with the toy, make the noises, and let them see you using the toy for…

Eating

Tonight Linus decided to feed himself with a spoon. He actually did a decent job.

Shopping

If it has wheels, Linus will bi bo it! Here he is shopping at Lowe’s this weekend.

Swimming Lessons - Update

Swimming Lessons – Update

Our brave young swimmer is still enjoying his swimming lessons. He’s got one more class next week, then a two-week hiatus before the Fall session begins. He’s the littlest guy in the class – by an entire year, I would…

Tap Your Head

Ba Noi taught Linus a little thing that ba nois say to little kids: Clap your hands and Grandma will give you a cake If you don’t, Grandma will hit you on the head Don’t worry: if anyone ever tried…
