Moving to Flickr

Hello everyone! We've really gotten off the blogging horse for the past six months or so. Sorry about that. What we have done is created a new Flickr account, though. Since this blog was really a photo log anyway, I think Flickr will serve us better. I'm going to try and link up the two accounts, so that messages go here when we post new photos on Flickr, but for now please visit our page at http://flickr.com/photos/obrienfamilync/. Happy New Year.

And we're back!!!

I'm very sorry for the blog silence.
We've had photo issues, but...
we just got a fancy new camera, and
we're now inspired to photograph
and share the photos on this little ol' blog.

Here's the first dose.

Hope everyone had a great Thanksgiving!

An afternoon at the museum

We went back to the Museum of Life and Science
in Durham, and just like last time,
Gus LOVED the drumming section.

Here he is showing off his walking
AND his drumming skills...
and let me warn you,
he throws down some impressive beats.

Arrrhh Matey...

(The post after this one might suggest otherwise,
but dangerous stunts weren't the cause of this--I swear!)

A couple weeks ago, Gus scratched his eye on
an unidentified object in his toybox.

After waking up from a nap a few hours later,
he refused to open his eye, which
absolutely terrified me. I rushed him to the
eye doctor, who gave him this lovely
patch to wear for 24 hours.

As you can see, he didn't mind it so much.

Our Little Bi-Ped

Gus is officially bipedal. See evidence below:

Serious scholar

Like I said in the post below, Gus is
very serious about his studies.

For example, here he is reading a book.

Gus Takes HIs Studies VERY Seriously

Gus graduated from the infant room at daycare today,
and they gave us his graduation photo.

I don't believe I've ever seen a more hilarious photo in my life.




I can only assume, based on the photo above,
that this child will excel in
the 1 year old class as well.


And yes, he is wearing a cap and gown.

What a difference a year makes

And Still More Birthday Photos

We had another birthday party for Gus
on Martha's Vineyard with his maternal grandparents,
Aunt Laura, Uncle Perry, and cousin Fifi.

It looked very similar to the previous party,
only this time it was chocolate.
