The Boys

Gus: Gus recently had his nine month well check. He is 19 pounds 8 ounces (38%) and 28.5 inches (59%); head circumference: 45.9 centimeters (71%). He currently has two teeth, his lower central incisors, and may be working on some more. He loves cruising around the house and can pull up to standing position; bath time is a lot of fun for him. He also enjoys looking at picture books. Lately he has been understanding small requests like, "no", "come here", "hands up", and "patty cake." He dances, claps, and sings "la, la, la, la, la."

Van: Van weighs 30.4 pounds and is 38 inches tall. His favorite thing to eat as of late are pickles. He is doing really well at preschool and is learning lots of new things. He has a great memory, is quite inquisitive and super imaginative. Recently he used his "magic wand" to present us with special items. First asking us what we would like, upon which he would say "kazap, kazap" and our request would be granted. Just the other day he walked over to me with Spencer's human physiology book and said, "Mom, can you put this away for me? I'm all done doing my research."

Turning the clocks back really did a number on Gus.

Halloween 2011

Trick-or-Treating at CrumpBoo at the ZooVicchrilli Family PartyPreschool Parade

Sydnee's Fairy Party

My super creative sister, Angie, threw her daughter, Sydnee, a fairy party for her fourth birthday. It was a gorgeous fall day, which allowed for the party to be outside. Van received a special cape that she and my mom made for him. They played fairy freeze and musical wands, and we ate a ton of delicious food. Thanks for the fun party, Angie and Sydnee!
