Decent enough day. RL near 100%; BW less so, but still maybe 70%. Morning was cold: 27°F, but by afternoon upper 40s, bright sunshine, and no wind allowed us to play outside for 30 minutes or so. BW has added “me me me” to his vocabulary. It can mean “me too” or “that’s mine” or[…]

Unseasonably warm, even for here: 79°F (low of 65°F). But despite the past few days of warmth, this was still the coolest November of the five Novembers we’ve seen in this house (October 2014 was the warmest of the five Octobers). Today, RLF got her notepad and pencil and worked at the dining room table[…]

Was supposed to be 23°F this morning, according to last night. Instead our low was 31°F — a full 8-degree difference. I wish I’d recorded a screenshot of that forecast. I need to remember to start doing that. Everyone expects a few degrees off here and there, but eight degrees? The kids were pretty[…]

BWF, who turned 11 months old yesterday, is in a climbing phase. He tries to climb everything, and successfully climbs into all three of his sister’s chairs, though he has trouble getting out. He climbs onto the bottom shelf of the changing table and tries to climb onto the sofa. MF worked a 1-11 p.m.[…]

* BWF slept till after 8 a.m. this morning, which was a nice break. (RLF still woke me not long after 6, but she can eat breakfast without help, which means I had more than an hour in which to get yesterday’s photos up, type a blog, respond to online comments, etc.) * BWF can[…]

Rebecca ran for the first time today (the technical difference between walking fast and running is that when you run both feet are off the ground at the same time). She was racing with two boys down the sidewalk — one of them is four and one is three.

June 12-13, 2012

June 12 (Tuesday): RLF’s first full meal in which she fed herself entirely by holding spoon, dipping and bringing food to her mouth. She’s been working on this much more patiently than I’d expected. (She often gets very frustrated when trying something and it doesn’t work.) Milestone charts say most kids can “use a spoon[…]

Rebecca last nursed on Tuesday, March 13, at 17 months and two days old. My wife had planned to wean her during this month, ending on or before the 18-month mark, but Rebecca took herself off yesterday, switching to full-on cow’s milk and regular food. There’s a chance of course that it’s only a temporary[…]

So, I figured out a video problem I was having, and Rebecca has taken a few more steps away from babyhood and toward childhood. (1 video after the jump)

The past few days were rainier and colder than the bulk of this January, but still warmer than one would expect for winter. We managed to get Rebecca out of the house several times — always a goal during my wife’s days off. (2 images after the jump)

With some milestones, it’s difficult to pin down a specific date. For example, if Rebecca makes a sound, and it seems to be an actual word, we wait for confirmation. Does it always mean that one thing? Does she use the same word next time? If the confirmation comes several days later, or if the[…]
