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.

Chugging along

with one comment



  • 10lbs 11oz!  This boy is big!
  • Reflux – better now, but it still affects him
  • starting to hang out on the floor
  • very tolerant of the hugs and kisses from his big sister



She’s 2.  We deal with her ups and downs and ups and downs.  Lately:

  • she hasn’t needed to be physically handed off to her teacher when dropped off at school
  • she’s started sitting next to the teacher and hamming it up in music class
  • she loves talking to her reflection, they have entire conversations in the car.  There’s a big part of me that doesn’t want to turn the seat around (she’s still rear-facing) because I enjoy her conversations with herself so much

Kai and Avi – quick updates

with one comment


  • 36 inches
  • almost 30 pounds? maybe? We haven’t weighed her for awhile
  • favorite foods: corn, okra, tortillas, cheese, fruit leather, bunny crackers, watermelon
  • favorite sayings: “mama silly”, “I really know but I don’t know”, “Happy birthday to you… (etc.)”
  • recent activities: making bird feeders from toilet paper rolls, kidnapping Avi’s stuffed animals for her own purposes, taking Elmo around the block in her ministroller


  • 22 inches
  • 10lbs 4.5oz.  He’s bypassed all the newborn clothes we saved and looks pretty comfy in the 3month-sized clothes.
  • Reflux.  He just started on meds for reflux, poor guy.
  • favorite places: the swing, our bed
  • favorite activities: watching the world go by


Kai is very sweet to Avi, and will put her arm around him and give his head a pat.  She will try and talk to him (sometimes I respond in my “fake Avi” voice) but if anybody else talks to him, she will sternly say “Baby Avi no know how to talk, okay?”

We’ve had to carefully go through old clothes, out of Kai’s sight.  She’ll find something cute in the pile and will want to try it on.  Since she’s able to squeeze into some 6-month sized pieces, she thinks that hand-me-downs for Avi are fair game for her…sigh…we did let her wear her rocket shirt all weekend.  It was in the bin of dress-up clothes for her dolls.

9lbs 8oz!

with one comment

At 3 weeks old, Avi is 9lbs and 3oz!  He is much bigger than Kai and didn’t fit in any of the newborn sized clothing we saved for him.  Kai was in NB clothing for 2 months so we figured we should keep alot of her stuff…nope!

He is one of the loudest babies ever – when he’s sleeping he chirps or hums or wheezes or grumbles or groans.  Or farts.  Amazing.

He seems relatively laid back and like his sister, is an observer.  So far his eyes are a deep blue.  Perhaps it’ll shift, perhaps not.

Avi is here!

with 2 comments

Avi arrived July 8, 2012 at 12:43am.

He was 7lbs 9oz but at our last weigh-in he was 8lbs 12oz!  He’s already too big for all of our newborn clothes!  More on the birth story later.  We’re tired, we’re adjusting and we’re going through lots of wipes 🙂
