Grandma Judy visit

Grandma Judy came for a visit in late August. Highlights included lots of playtime in the bathtub, reading books, feeding Juliet, and a tricycle ride with Claire. Judy stayed at home with Claire while Stu and I got away for a weekend with Juliet in San Francisco, where we enjoyed the relative calm and luxury of caring for only one child. Included are a few pictures of Juliet playing on the bed in our plush hotel. Click on the picture of Judy reading to Claire for a slideshow.

Summer fun (part 2)

Here’s our next set of photos from this summer. We’ve included lots of pictures of the girls together, including Juliet eating her first solid food, both of them sharing a ride in a swing, some fun at the beach and in the swimming pool, plus a shot of Claire trying on Stu’s sneakers. Click on the below picture of Juliet’s first bites (with Claire in the background showing exactly how to spread food all over the face) for a slideshow.

Summer fun (part 1)

We’re overdue for a post on the fun we’ve had this summer. First off today is a slideshow from July and early August, including Juliet and Claire on their first walk together in the double stroller, Juliet’s first bath (shared with Claire of course), a visit from the girls’ 志芳阿姨 (Aunt Chih-fang) who was in town with her family from Taiwan, a visit to a park with our friends Pat and Jen with Claire nervously experiencing her first carousel ride, and finally Claire and I sharing a chocolate milkshake at our neighborhood burger joint.
