The budding musician

At grandma's over the summer. June 2011. Dek, 7 months old.

Learning the piano. Well, with his feet.

Vintage Sleeping Boy

Ah, here he is when he napped. For months we let Derek nap in our bed with a big comforter on the weekend, it was the only way he'd sleep. So cute lost in a sea of blanket.

Arlington County Fair

Yes, he's actually eating his shoe there.

Zebra me!

Here is Dek (9 months) in this irresitable dog jumper. His eczema was acting up quite a bit in the last few months. Probably attributed to my inability to not cut out dairy completely. We have been seeing an allergist and it appears that he is also allergic to eggs and peanuts. He will probably outgrow milk and eggs, but the peanut one can be tricky. We tried to take him to get a blood test confirmed, but he was screaming so loudly I had to take him out of there. He's growing like a weed though. So active now and making all kinds of little discoveries (how to sit down after pulling up and crawling somewhere else since he can't wait, getting up to the couch, leaning on the door, throwing his food).

Roaming in the park

Sorry it took so long to get new posts up. I lost the camera. Bought a new one. Found the old one. So you'll see a slew of new posts soon. Here is Derek at our neighborhood park. He started crawling and walking assisted around the end of the 8th month. I'm amazed he ever started crawling seeing that he's carried constantly.
