This blog post isn’t even about Avi. We were so floored by what was going on across the country that we forgot to include Avi in the shot.

Steve Jobs and Apple have it all wrong. THIS is the killer scenario for Facetime: a cross-country dance party.

Deaf signing? Not the killer Facetime scenario...

I have a new cousin!

Sunday, August 8th, 2010

Well, eight days ago, I got a new cousin–Mikah Jin. Today, I got to meet him at his bris, and see lots of family whom I don’t get to see very often. Because it was a special occasion, I also got to wear a special sweater that my great-grandmother, Nanny, made for me when I was born. I’ve been drinking milk and eating all my food, trying to get big enough for the sweater, and today I did it!

A brand new cousin AND a new sweater! What a great day! Here’s a picture of me in the sweater. If you want to see my new cousin, check out the Photo Gallery!

Don't I look great in this sweater from Nanny?

Almost “reading”

Thursday, August 5th, 2010

OK, we may be overselling here a little. That said, you may not have been impressed by the Big Man chasing bubbles. I mean, you’ve certainly seen better (like the Flash Card Ninja). Well, maybe he can impress you here: as he starts to learn more words, the Big Man shows off some of his “reading” (or at least “recognizing”) skills. Next book? War and Peace! Check out the new video posted in the Photo Gallery, we think you’ll agree it’s more impressive than bubble-chasing…

Avi Turns 18 … months, but still with a mind of his own!

Tuesday, August 3rd, 2010

The Big Man turned 18 months old this past weekend and so, as was tradition, we tried to have a photo shoot. The trouble is that, unlike the good old days, the Big Man now has a mind of his own and that mind was not at all interested in posing for pictures. We went out for lunch and tried to pose him “around town” but boy, was it a struggle. In the end, we just gave up and brought him back home to the sandbox at our house.
The 13 photos that we were able to snap are now posted in the photo gallery.

I'm 18 and I'm gonna do what I want!

Quick Video: Chasing Bubbles

Monday, August 2nd, 2010

As you have seen in videos (a while ago), Avi is a talented gymnast. This video, taken at The Little Gym, does not show that skill. Instead, it’s a quick little video revealing only the fascination that little ones have with bubbles. It is difficult to imagine Mary Lou Retton chasing bubbles around the gym, I must admit (I checked her website and found nothing similar).

It’s Summer in San Francisco!

Sunday, August 1st, 2010

Well, it’s summer in San Francisco and, as any native will tell you, that means that it’s a bit chilly here as we wait for the warm part of the summer: September/October. We’re making the most of it, though, and have added a new photo album that captures some of our June adventures: gym class, playing in the park, and, of course, Red Sox games! Check it out in the Photo Gallery!

We watched the Sox beat the SF Giants!
