Bed Bath and Beyond

There is nothing Henry loves more than taking a bath. He'd stay in the water all night if we let him. In fact, once he hears the water running, he does anything he can to get into the bathroom...we can hardly get him out of his clothes fast enough. This clip shows his determination to get into the tub. Not shown is what happened about 3 minutes before this when he crawled to the tub and tried to climb in fully clothed. (Warning: this video is rated TV-M and may contain full-tushy nudity.)

Eleven Months

I know it's been a long time since we last updated this blog, but there is a very good reason. Apparently Henry was not amused by some of the pictures that have shown up here, because he broke our camera. Granted, he only dropped it from the height of his own knees (about six inches) but that did the trick. But! Problem solved...we now have a new camera with even more megapixels to dazzle you with. These pictures, however, were taken with our friend Christal's camera who came to the rescue when Henry turned eleven months old while our new camera was still en route from Amazon.

Thanks to a late-arriving Hanukkah gift from his cousins Shelley and Peter, Henry had a present to open on his eleven-month birthday.

The wrapping paper provided some predictable fun, but he really liked the police car inside.

"Hmmm. This looks like the perfect thing to put in one hand and push all over the house."

Before Henry turned eleven months old, he helped his friend Ford turn one year old. Happy birthday, Ford!

Hanukkah Henry!

Tonight, we celebrated the first night of Hanukkah and Henry helped light the candles and say the prayers.

Happy Hanukkah, everybody!

Unwrapping his first present. Seven more nights of this? Not a bad deal!

We ended the celebration by eating latkes (potato pancakes), a traditional Hanukkah food. Mikey likes it!
