Jet's teething again...

... and has alternated between cheerful and completely frustrated. We can see his gums, back there, are pretty swollen, and he even pointed to the Tylenol bottle and asked for some. He's getting far more capable than I imagine, sometimes.

He did a small miracle Friday night, and walked the length of Flatiron mall holding onto a cup of Cold Stone ice cream with one tiny, chubby hand. He somehow got an astonishing grip on the styrofoam and eventhough he swung the cup around a lot, he lost remarkably little ice cream until the very end. He even dropped it once, and the ice cream's consistancy kept it in the cup even when the cup was upsidedown! So he went merrily along his way. He even used a spoon to eat it out of the cup.

And with a tower called the Bastille that had six people attempting completely different climbs all on one face, it's quite interesting entertainment as well.

John's having a good Father's Day. Yay! It's been a quiet one and we're going to Ankor, a SouthEast Asian restaurant for Father's Day dinner, mostly because Sakura, our favorite Japanese place, is closed on Sundays.

    I keep trying to write up the Puerto Rico trip and I keep tripping over the feeling that doing it linearly doesn't do it justice. At all. But it's…

  • Sunshine in the Emerald City

    "I thought we were in Seattle. What is that huge bright thing up in the sky?" It's been cool here, but sunny. Ordinarily, it is sunny here through…
