Although a couple of weeks ago he took his first tentative solo steps, yesterday’s walk in the park is much closer to the real deal….Don’t mind the parents; we’re kind of excited, and thrilled that we both got to be there to see him go.
This photo is not connected to the post, but we all know you come here to see O! Food has been on my mind lately. The bad news– Oliver is allergic to peanuts. Which is kind of a big deal– as in no Thai restaurants, hassles at […]
Ahh, the joys of daddyhood.

Just to the right of tooth #4 (he’s getting the two on top) in comes tooth #5. This may explain some of the sleepless night we had last night. Otherwise Oliver is a champ, only mildly affected by the teeth eruption.
Just heard the sad news that Bill (white shirt) passed away this evening. So glad we got to see him last week.
Just thought this photo said a lot about his age. Growing up fast!
Oliver has his first crush.

Cute photos from our weekend getaway to Leesburg.
Christmas budgets being what they are, we decided to use the SnR Christmas movie franchise to pay some of the bills around here. So, our new sponsorship with Old Spice should bring in some cash while making our baby smell like the baby he should smell like. Merry Christmas everyone!
O gets a taste (literally) of his first snow.
Bath time cuteness.
A wonderful visit this week from California by grandma Susan. Good times, delicious food, and lots of O time!
My first ever pumpkin pie!
If this isn’t one of the cutest things you’ve seen today… 🙂 Anyway, O and I had a little glam-style portrait session yesterday. He was in a particularly good mood, probably because he had just woken up from a 2 hour nap (daddy assisted), so I grabbed a wrinkled sheet and the camera. Thought you […]
Cute photo of mom and boy.
As the new president of our Elders Quorum at church (the group of adult men), I get the chance to see into the lives of the members of our quorum. Choongo, one of our elders, and a new friend, needed a motorized wheelchair in a bad way. Virtually housebound, he faces not only continuing health […]
This shot turned out so well I thought it should be added to the Poop Deck. Mom, dad, Ollie.
Oliver and fam are on the road again. This time for a quick work trip up north. His eighth plane flight was uneventful, as all of the others have been (knocking on wood now). This means that O has now visited a dozen states, counting DC as a state, in only 4 months (and one […]
This morning I was invited to photograph an official naturalization ceremony for a Muslim friend from Morocco. It was a beautiful and inspiring event. A hundred or so newly-minted citizens took the oath of office with family members and friends watching, and wiping tears. It was truly an inspiring morning, including the thoughtful words from […]
O learned a new trick this week: the tripod. Ok, so he has a tendency to lean a little, but he’s upright under his own power. Baby steps.
O has just started to notice himself in mirrors. Makes me wonder what it was like before I knew I was me. It’s a beautiful thing to experience the world again through fresh eyes. Besides, this photo is pretty darn cute.
We got a bunch of books from our friends the Memas before they moved to Sweden. O and Scott have been enjoying the treasure.
O’s auntie sent him a book today that he just couldn’t put down. A real page turner. I’ll go ahead and spoil the end: duck.
