Current Events

Just wanted to write a quick update to let everyone know how we're all doing. We've successfully moved to California - the trip down was very easy, to our relief - and are living in our new house, though our stuff hasn't arrived yet! The moving van should be here on Sunday or Monday, and we've got new couches coming on Tuesday. We're settling in well; I'm especially enjoying the nice weather and take a long walk with Theodore every day.

Theodore is a pretty happy, healthy baby these days. He has fully mastered smiling and gives lots of big, heartbreaker grins, while giggling and cooing. I haven't managed to get a picture of it yet, but hopefully soon! He loves to spend part of each day and each evening lying on a blanket, kicking his legs, flailing his arms, and looking all over the place. When I hold him and he's awake, he loves to be held facing outwards so that he can see what's going on around him. He's so much more interested in the world, which is lots of fun! We do a lot of singing and walking around together, though he doesn't have any interest in toys as of yet.

He has really adjusted to the new house, and best of all, has started sleeping at night! He had a few really bad weeks, including one where he would take two to three hours to settle and then only sleep for forty-five minutes or an hour, but he started with four hour stretches, and now this past week has reliably done a five hour stretch and then another stretch for up to three hours. He even slept for seven and a half hours straight two nights ago! We are, of course, thrilled by this development. Bedtime is still a challenge, as he fights off sleep and gets very tired and cranky, but since he sleeps so well when he finally does fall asleep, we're pleased - and he's a happier baby for it too, I think!

Not too much else to report, so I'll end with a link to some photos that cover the time period from the last album until now, and two recent videos I posted on YouTube. Enjoy!

Absolutely adorable photos although I don't know how you could have photos of him that are not adorable!
