Something about having a baby, makes you all nostalgic. Back in the old days, only the grown up toys had batteries.

Munch Munch

Like he was born Pac Man, he's got to keep chomping.

Leftover Turkey Sandwiches

Turkey, stuffing, mashed potatoes, and cranberry sauce. A little bit of heaven between two slices of bread.

Back in the day, they had bowls of fruit and stuff. Now we've got two liter bottles, and cans of soda.

Uncle Tony

Being a father is one thing, but, I can still remember crawling around on the floor.


Loves the little one, but, don't they all?


It's great having everyone over. And, a new member of the family, to boot.

Big Bird

Yikes, it's huge--bigger than Julian!

Test Fit

Gobble gobble, it's almost turkey time!

Ready to Eat

He's just taken naturally to solid foods. Figures, I guess.

Sad, but, kind of relieved, as well. Hopefully, somebody else is enjoying it now.


It's like kids are genetically engrained to climb stuff. I mean, he just started crawling--I just stuck him in front of the stairs, next thing you know, he climbed two flights!

It's not so much that we wanted a girl or anything, it's just that if the coin flipped the other way or something, we think he'd be so cute. Of course, when he's a teenager, I'm sure he'll never live it down.

Who say's real men don't eat quiche? I love 'em.

Zooming around Laguna Seca, spinning out in the corkscrew--those were the days.

The Third Car

Bad back, plus baby, and dead battery, equals no zoom zoom.

Class Pictures

Not sure if they did this in my day, but, the lengths you have to go through to take some baby's portrait. Yikes!


It's not that anyone really wears them anymore, it's just part of the cultural zeitgeist.

Nine months old, so, he's been on the outside just about as long as he'd been on the inside. But, he still looks a bit groggy.

Halloween and Christmas

Two great tastes that taste great together. Kids are cute enough as is, but, it's still great to accessorize.

Independance Pancake

Kind of like a regular pancake, but, put all the batter in a pan, heat it up on the stove 'til it bubbles, and then stick the whole thing in the oven. Voila, ghetto souffle.

Fall Foliage

Actually, it's November, isn't that winter? Ah well, this is California.


Little kids are just like the big kids, they all want to do what the other ones are.


Such a cutie pie. You think your baby is the super model of babies, but, stick them in a room full of babies, and, they're all just so adorable.


It seemed like forever, waiting for him to become mobile. Next thing you know, he's all over the place!


Depending on the light and stuff, babies can really change a lot, but, no doubt about it, he's kinda porky.

Three Faces

Goofy Julian, loves to make faces. We're not sure where he picked up that tongue thing, but, it's pretty hilarious.


You wonder why they make children's toys in such bright colors. They really do prefer them. That's great, because they have way more curiosity than a village can supply.

Solid Foods

Not an especially reluctant eater, but, rather messy, nonetheless.

Discipline, and maintain cool (while cooking and feeding). Sharp picture, too.


No, not the wine region, it's the Chinese cabbage. Quite delicious in Japanese shabu shabu, too.


Bean curd as modern art.

Shabu Shabu

Another yummy dinner, inspired by last month's sukiyaki.

Yum, yum. Cheaper if you do it yourself. Quite tasty, too, if you go for that kind of thing.


Just started experimenting with solid food.
