Joseph in a Bathtub




In other news: According to Ada, she has a "new mommy" named Dundy. Interesting...

They Read




Ada sometimes climbs into Joseph's crib when he wakes up from his nap and reads to him. This almost makes me want to have a dozen more. Almost.

DUMBO

We went back to DUMBO and Jane's Carousel yesterday and got caught in a torrential downpour.


Now that is how you restore a carousel

In All Their Splendor



An extremely accurate representation of his gloriously enormous buttocks.

I don't think Ada looks anything like me (even me as a kid). But in this pic Jessie took I think we sort of do, no? (Ada picked out that outfit at Gap)

Golf

We finally made it home on Saturday after a cancelled flight and the universe pretty much just conspiring against us at every turn. Luckily both kids were as good as they could have possibly been. I survived!! A 5 hour flight with two kids all by myself. I can do anything. Really--it feels more empowering than when I gave birth.

You've never seen a child more excited to see her daddy. Ada has never been affectionate, but I tell you what--she literally hugged the hell out of Kyle.
Mild swearing aside, it was an amazing trip. I've got some pictures left I need to throw up here.

We took Ada golfing. She was into it and it was only a little bit inconvenient to have her out there. (I can't get any collaging tools to work right now so pardon the enormous post).
