The start of a career

Soren loves to dance. He is not so fond of doing it in a room fool of strangers, but is motivated when he there are balls to throw. This picture is from his weekly ballet class. Posted by Picasa

Pretty in pink again

Once again Fiona is in her favorite place, the car seat. She loves to smile. Posted by Picasa

Check out that missing tooth.

Soren is quite fond of the camera, but he cannot stand the flash. Posted by Picasa

Herding cats

Try to get one baby and one toddler who dislikes the camera's flash (there goes his modeling career) to pose for a picture. He is trying so hard to not squint.

But then he gives in and squints.

Too many flashes. He had to close his eyes.

I turned off the flash and they both looked in my direction.

Such a sweet face.

Soren at work

Soren is a big help. He loves to play with water, and we have tricked him into think that running soapy water over dirty dishes is a game.

And he really loves steak. He ate most of this soon after the picture was taken.

He has been making some bad choices recently and I don't know what to do. He favors his right hand and ketchup. And his left-handed, mustard loving father is concerned. He is doing OK on other issues. We have been using Thomas the Train to shape his political views. It is narrarated by George Carlin and features stories about labor issues. Posted by Picasa

More skills

Soren continues to make great progress. He can pick up a bug and put it back down without killing it. His mother is not thrilled when he brings bugs to her for analysis. He is also able to put the pacifier back into Fiona's mouth without upsetting her. Hopefully he is not carrying a bug when he does this. Finally, he says 'Thank you' all of the time, only he says it as 'T you'.

Improved communication skills

Fiona has greatly improved communication skills. In addition to crying, she smiles.

We have a blueberry thief

Soren was caught with his hands in the blueberry box. He has a very good poker face. Posted by Picasa
