Multisport Ada

In Bend, Ada learned a few new sports:
Rock climbing (she really did climb up here by herself, although I had to help her down)
Triathlon (those transitions from swimming to the bike are always the hardest, right?)
Gravel munching (they're just starting to work on getting it into the Olympics. Maybe Ada has a chance in the 2020?)
100-meter sprint -- watch out, Usain Bolt. Nothing's faster than Ada heading towards danger.

Lonely days

(posted by T while Ada and I are in Bend)

Work is fine and all, but I miss this girl:

And this one:

And this one...

...and particularly this one.

Sick, Sad and Wrong

Why? Why do we undermine the dignity of our little ones? Just for fun? I'm so ashamed.  

(Actually, her hair really was getting in her face and this seemed like a good solution. Does it hurt that it's totally hysterical too?)

Oh Cousin Where Art Thou?

Luckily Kirin and I have the same sense of humor (and fabulous taste in onesies)... Ada and Nola are destined to be good friends I'm sure, although I have no doubt that they'll absolutely hate being dressed alike, especially when they're both dressed as extras from the upcoming sequel, "Oh Cousin Where Art Thou?"

Heh. I crack me up. 


Everyone knows about Ada's thrice-daily smorgasbord, but she's got nothing on Nola. Nola has a portable picnic -- in the park:

In the woods:

Or mellowing out at home...

Actually, it's been absolutely lovely hanging out with her (and her Mom!). Nola is a completely sweet, mellow baby with extremely rare moments of crankiness, which tend not to last too long, considering that the smorgasbord is always close by. Kirin is a complete natural as well -- calm, organized, happy, not even a little bit overwhelmed. Amazing!
