Mommy's shoes!

Cecilia has really been into wearing my shoes lately, from my heels, to my work shoes to my tennis shoes.



It's really cute, although she insists on doing everything "myself!"

Fun night with the Lubrettsky's

A few weeks ago, we had Arlene, Jerry, Ben, Jen, Aaron and Jacob all over to our new place for a big dinner. Afterward, we all just hung out and had a great time.

Guess who showed Cecilia how to climb into our ottomans?



Then there was a lot of monkeying around with Uncle Ben!

Singing songs

Cecilia has really been into singing songs lately. Before she goes to bed, we often sing her a medley consisting of 1. the Cecilia song, 2. Kumbaya, 3. Amazing Grace, and 4. Silent Night. Tonight, she sang almost the entire medley with us, word for word!

Here she is singing Twinkle, Twinkle, Little Star with her cousins, Aaron and Jacob:

Outside of the aquarium last weekend.

Swinging

As you may have noticed from several pictures in recent posts, Cecilia's new favorite activity is getting swung by her hands between two adults. Here is a quick video Bruce took in the parking lot of the Super 88 food court!

Merry Go Round


Cecilia loves the Merry Go Round. There's one between the harbor and Faneuil Hall that she has to go on every time we go down there.

Great Pictures

These are actually from the last two albums I posted, but they are so good I felt they deserved their own space.

Boston Harbor Islands

Another excursion we took with Grandma & Grandpa was to Georges Island in Boston Harbor, the site of a 19th century fortress built to protect Boston. We had a picnic out there and really enjoyed the spectacular views from the ferry.

Cecilia and I kept a sharp lookout for any approaching British ships!
The views from the ferry really are fantastic and I highly recommend an excursion like this to anyone visiting Boston.

Here is the album.

Apple Picking with Grandma & Grandpa

Joanne's parents were here for a couple weeks last month, and we spent a day picking apples about an hour northwest of the city.

Cecilia liked the hayride.
Here is a unique method for getting the apples high up in the tree.
 Here is the whole album.
