Video from July and August

Ok, this is my last official "catching up" post and I'm done!

I tried to limit myself to the very cutest ones...

Growing up in 2011 is a little different than the 1970s!

Sollycar's first race!

Happy Birthday!

The camel video, as promised.

Reading with Grandma.

Solly plays t-ball.

Solly in the forest.  Is there anything more joyful than a boy running through the forest?

Mira's first ice cream!

Northwest Trek with the gang.

Mount Rainier Scenic Railroad.

And with that, I AM CAUGHT UP!!!!!!!  That was tough, but I'm glad that I have a record of Mira's first year.  Now I can start looking forward again...

Catching Up: August!

The boy of summer!  

Solly fell in love with baseball this summer.  I actually think there must be a baseball gene, because he obviously hasn't been exposed to it from us, but we all know about Bubbe's love of the game.  And Grandpa Saul, for that matter!

I have amazing photos and videos from this night, but I don't want to post them online.  This one is pretty conservative and captures how much fun the two of them had.

Miss Mira is continuing to grow and grow.  And cruise and cruise.

And eat and eat.

She's starting to communicate by sign language.  She can wave, ask for more, and make cute flirty faces.

First hamburger!

Check out her teeth!  They grew in a funny order--first the bottom two, then one of hercanines, then her two top middle teeth.

Drinking from a straw!  Most of it ends up on her chest, but she gets it.

Another bow for Bubbe.

More Shabbat Camp fun!

Grant's birthday party at the Nature Center.

Hmm, what's this?

Yum, Wood chips!

Remember Solly's first Korean meal?  Mira had the same reaction!

Still loves Korean!

The gang headed out to Northwest Trek, the zoo where you are inside the bus and the animals roam free.

Jessica, Mark, Elsa, Van, and Leo came to visit from Santa Monica.  We made Shabbat challah!

We finally took the Mount Rainier Scenic Railroad.  

The mountain!

Alright, that's August!  Some video to edit, and I will be CAUGHT UP through this month!

Solly Turned THREE!

Solly had a lovely birthday.  Lots of visitors, lots of gifts, and a few parties.  Oh, and a camel!

First, we brought birthday bug cupcakes to Shabbat Camp.

The morning of his birthday, the gift-opening extravaganza.

Note the bike helmet!  Solly got a BIKE!  A balance bike!

The party itself was at the Stewart Heights Pool.  I didn't take enough pictures, believe it or not!  By this time, I was so behind on the blog and my computer had filled with photos and videos, so I started to slow down taking more.  I did get some good ones of the cake portion of the party!

The last birthday event was the riding of the camel.  When Solly turned two I made a big thing about how he could ride a camel at the zoo, but it turned out it was actually a three year old thing.  So for months I had been building him up for this.  I have some video of the actual camel riding, but here are some shots of a fun day at the zoo.

Solly playing with his new doctor kit.  Thanks GG!

The balance bike was a big hit.  Elon has one too, and the boys looked so grown up riding around.  Solly loves to ride it while Daddy walks Babaloo, and Daddy likes how much faster the walk goes!

Ok, July photos done!  Only a few days before the quarter starts, so I've gotta get it done!
