Felix Goes (Back) to Hampton

Beach mohawks are going to be very in next summer. Felix introduced the style to the New Hampshire seacoast late last month.
Note that Buddha belly. My boy doesn't miss many meals!

Here he is admiring low tide from the safety of Memere's lap.
But ultimately, the ocean is still too much for him...

O is a quirky little guy.


Felix's First Haircut

We decided to trim the long unruly bits last month, since they were getting in his eyes...



The Florence Street Reunion

A few weeks ago, some friends of ours, originating with one of Mark's close friendships from college, were back East from Arizona for a few weeks, so we gathered up a bunch of folks, all from Mark's college crew, now including spouses and, in some cases, offspring, and had ourselves a big ol' party in Cambridge. Here's some of what happened:

Felix and Kaia play in the pool.

Felix and Odin

Odin teaches Felix the finer points of map reading.

Checking stuff out with Uncle Tracy

It was a great afternoon/evening, and it was nice to get everyone together. If only life didn't get in the way, we'd all do it more often.... and then maybe I'd get Justin, Lex, and Nikki into some of the shots. Also, if Kaia had been wearing more clothes, I might have more pictures of her to post, but she was mostly nekkid, so there you go.

What I Haven't Been Blogging About

found this little lost post wandering around blogger, looking for its publishing button. poor thing. it originated on 7/15/08:

Scintillating days like today. That's what.

Felix was up half the night screaming. When I got to work, I made a plan that took everyone's needs into account. Groceries to benefit all, even Mr. & Mrs. Boss, a haircut at SnipIts and lunch at Friendly's for O, and swimming at the Frog Pond for both little boys. Also, happy, busy boys = relief for my splitting head. Please, gods of sleep, visit my little munchkin tonight. Mama needs a full seven hours!
