Zoey’s first day of Second Grade, and the first day of Keegan’s last year of preschool: Zoey’s first day of First Grade, and the first day of Keegan’s second year of preschool (or close enough): Zoey’s first day of Kindergarten, and kinda sorta Keegan’s first day of preschool: Here are some more photos from this [...]
The other day Keegan stood up by himself for a second or two in the yard. Tonight after dinner in the living room I demonstrated pushing up from a bear walk to standing with my feet wide apart, and he immediately copied me. He then started standing up repeatedly, and then even taking a few [...]
Each year Shoreline Cooperative Preschool has one big fundraiser. This combines our Halloween Carnival, a silent auction (run by Rona and me and a small crew), and a raffle. You are, of course, invited to come to the big carnival at our preschool, to play some games, eat fun food, and bid on (truly) fabulous [...]
"Someday you’re going to discover you’re not invincible, and it’s going to come as a shock." "Daddy, what does ‘shock’ mean?"
Yesterday we moved Keegan’s crib into Zoey’s room—now Zoey & Keegan’s room—and he spent his first night in there with her. He had trouble falling asleep in the new space, and then woke up at Time I Can’t Remember From Lack Of Sleep in the night, but Zoey slept fine, which was my main concern. [...]

Today was Keegan’s six-month appointment. We got some erythromycin for his goopy eye, since it hasn’t yet cleared up on its own, and he is otherwise doing great! He weighs 19 pounds, 9 ounces. Rona and had checkups too, and we both have high cholesterol. Rona’s blood pressure is perfect as always, but mine is [...]
We are just now coming out of a very busy Fall. I don’t think we have ever been quite this busy. I had started to write about Keegan’s 4 month doctor visit and now it is almost time for his 6 month appointment. Here are the 4 month old stats: Yes, two weeks ago it [...]
We’ve been super busy since the last post, which was too long ago. Today is our preschool’s Halloween Carnival, which is a big deal (the only fundraiser we do all year). Rona and I are running the silent auction, which is probably going to do really well this year. I’m going to leave with the [...]
