now we're really cookin'!

zack is still on a "cooking" kick. to support his habit and give us some peace and quiet, he (and penny) got a new kitchen set this week. it's funny how someone who is so reluctant to eat likes to "cook" so much...

new hat

some people can pull hats off, some people can't. penny definitely can, don't you agree?

this cute one arrived today from auntie summer in oakland. just in time for the snowstorm that is expected to hit in a couple of days!

obama babies

watching the coverage of the inauguration with my two little ones today is something i'll never forget. how lucky they are to witness such a wonderful change in their lives. i hope that once they're old enough to grasp the significance of the event, they'll be as inspired by president obama as their mom and dad are.

next stop...everest!

here in new england, we're in the middle of what they're calling an "arctic blast". unfortunately, it's not nearly as fun as it sounds. to help penny survive the cold, her auntie alison back in san francisco recently sent her this adoreable patagonia jacket. hopefully it'll inspire penny to be a mountain climber just like alison. while it doesn't fit her quite yet, it's so cute that it (almost) makes me look forward to next winter!

two months

penny has been part of our family for two whole months. to celebrate, she played with her baby einstein gym and cooed for mom.

double the fun

mom and dad are slowly becoming experts in using the double stroller...some shots from a recent trip out:

zack, wondering where the heck his sister is riding...
there's penny! snuggled in the back... (yes, we have to remind ourselves she's there...)

wow! i have been really slow on getting the posts out lately. must be the two kids. the two kids who have BOTH had major feeding issues this week. zack has been eating like the little bird he is and penny had some rejection / pooping issues. we've had our hands fuller than full. while mom worked on nourishing penny and preparing the delicious meals suggested by zack's nutritionist, zack did his own bit of "cooking" to keep himself busy like a good boy.

one of zack's favorite new pasttimes: stirring. playing "i see you" with the colandar.

happy new year!

we had a wonderful new years eve out together as a family! many thanks to friends jenn and paul for hosting us and the kiddos (sorry, no pics of penny -- she snoozed the entire time and didn't even get to show off her cute outfit!)
