Movie: Gideon, go to sleep

Same thing with Felix, sometimes he just needs you to close his eyes for him.

Concord grape

My favorite sort of grape, unavailable in Europe and, for some reason, no decent one was to be found here in California last season. But this is a happier year, the Good Earth is bursting with bags of the best, tart-skinned, sweet inside, and with that wonderful deep purple layer between the two. Purple being Felix's favorite color I carefully removed the skin on a nice big one the other day, to show him, and to convince him to try this new treat. He did so and liked the taste just fine, but what he really enjoys is the sight of the stripped grape, and he now repeatedly asks me to prepare them for him in this way. Yes, that's right, on top of everything else I am now expected actually to peel him a grape.

Movie: Kickstick

Nothing makes the boy laugh harder than a little slapstick, or in this case, kickstick.

Movie: Felix rocks out

My fondest hope is that Felix will become a rock star, and here, complete with attempted destruction of stereo equipment, I find cause for hope.

Movie: The seaweed forager

Bolinas beach, one of our favorite places. Seaweed, one of our favorite foods. Sand, one of our most ubiquitous contaminants.

Movie: Roly Poly Gideon

He's been doing this for several days now, but I've only this morning managed to catch the live action! Poor guy is teething, too, but that doesn't stop him, oh no it does not.

Movie: Brothers

Not staged, the big one really is that sweet most nights before bed. Well, that sweet to the little one, he can still be pretty tough for the parents to deal with....

Movie: Day and night

Some of us are content merely to dilate our pupils in response to a dimming of the light. Not so Gideon.

I don't know why anyone would want to look at a dozen pictures of the same two babies doing nothing, but for some reason I do.

What does it mean?

What does it mean? I have no idea. He sure does it a lot though!
