Ginelle turns one and faceplants the cake

Posted by & filed under baby, birthday.

Over Memorial Day weekend our little baby turned one year old. We threw her a birthday part with family and friends in attendance and gave her an oversize cupcake as her personal cake to eat in her high-chair. Ginelle did wonderfully well neither crying nor putting her hand directly in the candle flame while we… Read more »

Happy Birthday Ginelle!

Posted by & filed under baby, birthday.

It astonishes me how quickly a year goes by, and suddenly my little baby, who’s never been particularly little is also not so much a baby anymore either. She independently plays, except when she’s swinging (and needs a little help from her sister). She’s crusing (almost walking), she’s forming sounds (almost words). She’s on the… Read more »

Happy Birthday Kaylee!

How did she get to be three years old already?! We woke up (groggily), dressed her, fed her, brush teeth and hair, dropped her off at day care, kissed her goodbye, we went to work. Later that evening: picked her up, big hugs, drove her home, watched a little of her favorite show, fed her dinner,… Read more »

For my birthday this year, Selena put together a most fun event modeled after the book series The Hunger Games. She had us all meet at Bellevue State Park in Delaware and had set up a circle with 16 starting points around a Cornucopia of supplies in the center. When she said “Go” everyone either… Read more »

Home Stretch for Baby Time

Posted by & filed under baby, birthday.

We are within the last 24 hours of being free-wielding non-parents. Due to the magical powers of inducing there is no need for baby pools, we know that by noontime on Thursday, Selena and Greg will become Mom and Dad to a little baby girl.  How are we doing with this realization? I’ll be candid…… Read more »

Posted by & filed under birthday.

Happy 10th Birthday Disney’s Animal Kingdom. Ten years ago, today, the park opened to the public – and I was there. I toured the park for the umpteenth time that morning, not bothering with any of the rides or shows; I had done them all dozens of times pre-opening, but watching the faces of the… Read more »
