I like to paint my arms and hands. I’m also always a little surprised at how much of my body I’ve painted.


I’m almost 1! I’m taking 5-6 steps at a time now, I can’t wait until I can run. My eyes used to be blue but now they seem to move between green, blue and brown. I’m a big boy – I’m wearing 18-24 month sized clothes.


We moved back to Austin! While our moms were packing up there were fewer and fewer toys every day. Kai resorted to learning about plumbing while Avi watched.

On the eve of Kai’s first birthday…

with 2 comments

Party time!

Kai is going to be 1 tomorrow!  We’re having a party at the park with friends and food.

I can’t believe she’s almost 1!

She loves food, especially salsa and guacamole.  She’ll have days where she just wants to eat carbs and other days where she’s chomping down on fruit.  Luckily her third tooth is on its way.  She’s been very good at eating things with just 2 bottom teeth (shredding carrots then picking up the shreds), but a third will be pretty useful.  We can see 3 other tooth buds…who knows when those’ll pop…

Over Halloween, she developed ninja skills (can you see her in this picture?) and snuck into our neighbor’s house.  She’s able to walk really well now, although she still needs to hold her hands out in front of her for balance.


We’re also learning about her generous side…these past few days, she’s been bringing her toys (and a pamphlet) over to Mrs Bean and asking her to nurse them by making the nursing sign, smacking her lips and going “mm mmmm mmm”.  So far, Mrs Bean has refused these requests.

Wow.  A year.  It’s hard to believe, it’s been amazing so far and I’m so curious to know what future years will bring.

The bean in nature

with 2 comments

The bean is having great fun outdoors.  In addition to practicing her walking, she’s learning a lot about dirt, getting dirty, spreading dirt, the best way to crawl in dirt…you get the picture.

Our next door neighbors have started a massive raised container garden and Kai loves it!  She loves to eat leaves off the herbs next door – basil, oregano, mint and cilantro.  She is fascinated by the rain gauge, loves to pick up pine needles and loves hanging out next door.  We have great neighbors.

The bean is 11 months old.  She’s almost a year old!  Whoa, where did the year go?  Looking at pictures from when she was a tiny newborn or even from 3 months ago…it’s just amazing to see how much older she looks.  And she’s walking and trying to talk.  Our baby is growing up so quickly!

Soil quality is very important...
