Reading the torah

On the way home from synagogue Tovina read to us from her personal Torah.
You can see her in action here.

Swaddled no more

I laid Ari down on his bed while I was getting his actual bed ready for him. He noticed his stuffed animal a foot out so away, scootched himself over to it, started sucking on it, and promptly fell asleep.
I think I could get use to this bed time routine.

Mommy can't count

Being an engineer I thought I had some mad crazy good math skills (which are still left reeling in the dust by actuaries, but that's a different story) so I was a little surprised yesterday to learn that I can't count to 2.

Cause that's how many teeth Ari now has while I thought we were still at 1.

Plague house

I'm a little surprised that the government hasn't shown up to impose a quarantine already. Here you can see plague vector 1 passed out on the couch. See that bucket next to her? She's been using it a lot. Way more than I thought someone her size could use such a thing.

We are making sure Tovina is staying hydrated and she is enjoying the extra TV time when she is not sleeping.

I'm just looking forward to her eventually, someday, if we're lucky, getting better.

Ari and the tooth

Ari has been gnawing on things quite a bit for the last 2 weeks. There has also been an impressive amount of drool.
Though, as you might have noticed, he is a baby and a certain amount of drool and gnawing are to be expected.
Then we noticed that he was getting kind of fussy and difficult. Not difficult compared to many other babies, but for Ari Patrick he was being down right ornery. Of course he also has a really impressive cold, so maybe that is affecting him....

Today we felt his tooth. Bottom, front, left incisor. And at only 5 months. I just checked and T's started coming in at 7 months.
We're planning on starting him on steak dinners next week.

How on earth did we get to December already?
Quick update:
We are all doing well. Ari Patrick is now able to roll from his back to front and front to back though rarely one right after the other. He is also great at jamming things into his mouth. Oh, and drooling - very, very good at drooling.
Tovina is still the outgoing joy she has always been. There are a few more twirls and discussions around bed time but otherwise happy and friendly.
