New York City Vacation

We came to the realization that the formula for vacation has now become simplified to be, Vacation = Grandparents. Between that and being broke since we bought our house we decided to spend our third quarter week off with my mom in New York and it turned out to be a great choice. Cecilia had a great time with Grandma and seeing the sites of the city, and I had a great time napping every day!

Here are a few highlights and here is the whole album. Sadly I don't see a single picture with Grandma in there, but hopefully she will show up on the video when I get around to loading it.

Cloisters Overlooking Hudson River


Central Park Zoo

Cousin Noam

So I finally loaded the videos - here is one of Grandma pushing Cecilia around in a toy car in her basement playroom.

Lerner Weekend

We went to Rachel's Bat Mitzvah and then spent the night at Arlene and Jerry's last weekend. Rachel did a great job, especially with the singing parts, and we all had a good time. Cecilia loved exploring the "Farm" and there are some nice pictures of her with Joanne and Arlene. Here is the album.

Not a Baby Anymore

Following up on Joanne's last post, we can definitively say Cecilia is no longer a baby. "Baby" is a word she knows, and when she sees one she likes to point at them and say it. On Monday I was in the playground with her and there was a little stroller which she kept pointing at and saying "baby, baby, baby" over and over again, because I guess she knew it was a stroller for a baby.

So I asked her, "Is Cecilia a baby?" and she replied with conviction "no!". Then I asked her, "Is Cecilia a little girl?", and she replied "yeah". So I guess that settles it, baby Cecilia has grown up to be a little girl.

Cecilia's backpack!

Cecilia got a new Disney backpack from California Grandma and Grandpa. She has been saying "baa-paa!" now for quite some while so she's excited to have her own baa-paa. Here's a picture of her wearing it.

Doesn't she look all grown up in this picture?
