Most popular game of the week!

Baby's first bruise


Way more traumatic for his parents than for Elijah! A highly adventurous crawling maneuver resulted in a big knot on the noggin. It swelled up into a lump like in the cartoons and is now a tough-looking purple bruise...I tried to capture it.

The good news is that it inspired many of our friends at Thanksgiving II to tell stories of their own childhood accidents. I am partial to the one in which the child fell holding a plug: the prongs went right into his forehead, of course.

Crawl On

Elijah's crawling! This is a jaunt that he made on November 19th, 2009. Pardon the shaky camerawork.

Toothface

Elijah is getting his top two teeth, a painful process, but one not without cuteness. He has recently taken to grinding his bottom two teeth against his top two, resulting in tough face not unlike that of Don Corleone sitting down to a plate of veal parmesan. Despite our continual attempts to capture this face on camera, it wasn't until last night that our pal Brendan, with his trusty iPhone, succeeded.
