Toddler Towers

Another blurry picture, but I wanted to mark Forrest's entrance into the block phase. I'm sure it will last a long time. He's figured out how to gently stack each block of the tower, until he decides to violently destroy it of course.

Perfect Hiding Spot

Who knew when we redid the kitchen that this would turn out to be a perfect Forrest-sized nook? He likes to squeeze in here especially when he has a snack in hand. Good that he's utilizing it now - pretty soon he won't fit in it anymore!

Dim Sum

A successful trip out for dim sum. It only works because with the carts there's no waiting for the food to come. Note the quintessential old Chinese men in the background!

Front Seat Driver

Maybe if they work together they'll figure out how to drive it.


No special event in this picture, just a happy little guy!

Lazy Susan

Great grandma gave us her old lazy Susan. It doesn't work so well on the table because if we put anything on it Forrest will spin it right off. But on the floor it makes a pretty good block base.

Lite Brite

A favorite at the museum of science. This one combines two of Forrest's favorite things. Sticking things in other things, and bright lights. You'll probably find us here every rainy day.


Obligatory photos of Forrest in his Halloween costume, which did not fool Lotus even for a second.

Aunt Rayna

Forrest learned how to throw sticks for Rayna! Sometimes he forgets to actually throw it and just puts it in her mouth but it's a fun game for everyone. Of all the dogs in Forrest's life, Rayna is by far the most patient and pettable.

Fall Woods

Daddy showed Forrest all the fun things to be found in the woods and Lotus showed us how muddy she can get.


Forrest and Ryah have known each other since before they were born, but they've just now started noticing each other.

More Sliding


Yet another slide that Forrest has learned to climb up and slide down by himself. He still forgets to sit down sometimes, but he's basically getting the hang of it!

15 Months Old!

 Forrest is 15 months old! He's 26 pounds, which is just about the 90th percentile. He's bigger than some 2-year-olds, but still not quite as well-balanced as they are. He sure knows how to keep busy, bopping around the house banging and climbing things. He's just started to be interested in books so that's a whole new world for him. He still just has the 8 teeth but I'm sure that will change soon. He's a bit of a picky eater, there are probably about 10 foods he will reliably eat. His favorite is fruit, but beyond that he's pretty into avocado and cheese, and specific types of tofu and rice. There are way more things that make him laugh then ever before, so aside from the tantrums and biting that comes with the toddler territory, we're having a pretty good time these days!

Sitting in a Tree

What better place for a giggle than a nice tree branch?

Bead Maze

Contrary to popular belief, bead mazes actually do exist outside of doctors offices! And this was one of the rare occasions Forrest decided to play with one.
