In the Presidio

Mommy and Daddy and I went to San Francisco where Laura Voight took some beautiful photos of us.

Griffin and his mom Jennifer came over this weekend.  He is one of my Marin Momma buddies.  I watch him stand up and it makes me want to try to stand up too.


I have started some yoga poses, and they seem to come naturally to me.

Play Date

Katherine came over today for a play date while mom and dad packed things up for our move. She's a pro, because she has two younger sisters and has been babysitting a long time.

My First Indy 500

I'm sad Danica Patrick got wrecked out of the race by someone else's idiot mistake...

My First Press Coverage

Dad's alumni magazine from Dartmouth arrived in the mail today. (Hi there, all you 86's, and others! Please leave a comment on this page if you would like to introduce yourself or say 'hi' to dad.) Here is the item they ran; you can click on it to make it larger and easier to read:

Sitting Up

This morning I went with my mom and dad to the Half Day Cafe in Kentfield. And for the first time they put me in this thing they called a 'high chair'. They stuffed the Ergo sling behind my back so I would not slump backwards, and they drew the chair right up to the edge of their table. For most of an hour I sat with them as they had their late breakfast. (It looked like they enjoyed it a lot, but I did not get a taste.)

It was great to sit and chat with them for so long. I felt like I am no longer just a little baby that lies around. I can push myself around on the floor, sometimes with my arms, sometimes with my knees and feet. (Mom and dad think I can do three or four yoga poses, whatever that means.) I can spin around when I am on the hardwood, and I can really move around when I am up on the bed. I even got so close to the edge that I fell off onto the rug on the floor earlier this week. Ouch! That made me cry for a while. But I am OK now.

I can sit up now, too, but I need to be on a soft surface or have a big person close by. I do not always stay upright. I still tend to fall over to the side or backwards, so my head needs to not hit anything hard or dangerous. I think that before too much longer I will be able to sit up without any help.

I like my body and all the things I can do with it!
