so, a giant gap ensued in my timeline. it seems to have coincided with athan's superior gains in mobility and i will let the blame lie there. it's been a great year and a half. there are ups and downs but he's a happy little fellow and a real treat to share life with..

lately, he's into being a grownup..


livin easy with kaya and aunt renee..

piccolo finale at hampton park...thanks mitchell!

if we don't count 'uumm'(apparently i say that a lot), athan's first word is 'dawg'--with an inflection at the end, like it's a question. pretty funny. here he is pictured with freddie, mitchell and farrah's new friend..

dying easter eggs with the cercone's and kimes/buckners(not pictured)--little lillie and athan plotting their escape..

february 3rd 09 was athan's first birthday--we had a drum circle to celebrate. he loved it!

First Haircut

we have since had a second, but here are some images from the first haircut. we forgot our camera and katana, the 'stylist', was kind enough to lend her camera and email the photos. athan was actually pretty still --curious about the situation...

Life in Autumn

our little man is now almost 10 mths-unbelievable!he seems to be right at the brink of walking, practicing standing on his own and traversing along the furniture. we've got some 'da da da's and some funny little songs that include all sorts of sounds, but no discernible words--oh!, and 7 teeth! it's fun to watch the constant changes and i'm sure christmas as it comes will bring out some magic in him too..

election day included a marathon 4.5 hrs at our neighborhood spot. athan was terrific, spending most of that time in his stroller with reggie taking him on energetic 'field trips' around the grounds. despite the long hours, the attitudes surrounding us were jolly and we met lots of nice people that live in our area. all that and we got athan a president!

halloween with pebbles(kaya buckner) and bamm bamm..

milestone: learning the cheerio

First Boat Ride

athan took to his first water trip well..even while the life preserver tried to gobble him up. these were taken as we set out. he then proceeded to fall fast asleep for the bulk of the spin. thanks
uncle mike for a great afternoon!
