Merry Christmas!

Judging by the amount of panting she did at the sight of her presents, Amelia's first Christmas was a great success! It was even a white Christmas (briefly, anyway) here in Seattle.

Sweater from Nana

Amelia's Nana knitted her a beautiful sweater when she was born, and it finally fits! Well, close enough. She's so cute in it, we can't resist wearing it already!

Sous Chef

As many of you know, we love to cook elaborate meals, so you can imagine how happy we were when Amelia jumped right in to help out cooking our last feast!

Welcome, Joyce!

Amelia's new au pair arrived this week. Her name is Joyce, she is from Brazil, and she is very sweet and nice! We're very excited to have her here!

Baby Legs

You can always tell a Seattle baby by her babylegs - legwarmers for babies made by a local woman that are all the rage here. Amelia poses with hers for the camera.

First Snowstorm

Although Amelia experienced her first flurry in New Jersey, her first snowstorm was in Seattle, of all places!


Like all babies, Amelia loves to play peek-a-boo. We found a very sophisticated version of this game at the Manhattan Children's Museum.

And of course Amelia experienced many firsts during our trip, including her first snow, first diner, first trip to Grand Sichuan and her first pint in a pub!

New Friends

Amelia made many, many new friends on her first east coast tour!

One for the Road

We're heading back East today, so we may not be able to post for a while. But this lovely smile should hold all you Amelia fans over until we're back!

Dinner Date

This weekend Amelia went to dinner at her Grandpa Charlie and Grandma Becky's house. She had lots of fun sliding around on the slippery countertop and licking our wine glasses!

One of Amelia's new tricks is giving big, wet, slobbery kisses. Needless to say, we can't get enough of them!

Look How Much I've Grown!

When Amelia was a newborn and we carried her around in her sling, people would stop to ask if we had a baby in there. Now she can't hide anymore!

PEPS Halloween Party

PEPS is a Seattle organization that puts together great groups for new parents. Our group had a Halloween party this year - the kiddos all looked so cute!
