Feet in the Fountain

It's summer again! At least for today, though the weather hasn't quite decided if we should put away our coats yet. Forrest hasn't warmed up to the splash pads yet this year, the big fountains still make him nervous. But the little ones are just his size.

Green Thumb

A Sunday morning planting a little herb garden with daddy!

Carousel Ride

First time on the carousel! He wanted to ride the rooster but it was taken so he settled for a serpentine horse instead. He wasn't thrilled during the ride but he wanted to go again and has talked about it all week so I think he liked it!

Forrest's prize for surviving 11 days without mommy: a brand new scooter! Okay the real reason dad bought the scooter was that all the other kids have them. But either way, he's learning to ride it and he is loving it. I just hope he learns to steer soon.

Bike Mechanic

One of Forrest's obsessions lately is turning the pedal on mom's shiny new bike. Let's hope he's figuring out how the whole thing works so in a few years he can become the family bike mechanic.

In the Driver's Seat

Always on the move!

Dumpling Chef

Start them early! Forrest is learning from the master. Mostly he just plays with the dough, and he refuses to taste the finished product. But I'm sure we're building a solid foundation for his future culinary skills. 

It's a Bird...

It's a plane! Forrest loves airplanes, like most little kids. Lucky for him we live in some kind of flyover zone. So he has lots of chances to spot planes, and helicopters too.

Spring is Here

The snow has almost all melted and its playground season again! Forrest's little feet can reach a lot more than they used to. He's ready for some fun!

Breakfast of Champions

Don't mind if I do! There is never a shortage of grape tomatoes in the Steinway Zolan household, where we had Passover this year.

Forrest has graduated to a toddler bed! He has also graduated to toddler temper tantrums. It was a sudden switch to hating everything and being comforted by nothing, but like everything else, it has to be a phase. Just don't tell me how long it's going to last.
