tooth vs. teeth

Sonia's second tooth broke through today. No wonder she has been so uncomfortable.

Rock the Cradle

Today, in celebration of Sonia's first tooth (thank you Santa - better late than never!) we took Sonia to her first Rock the Cradle event, hosted by our wonderful, publicly-funded, local radio station, The Current. The event took place at the Minneapolis Institute of Arts/Children's Theatre Company. Sonia stared at hundreds of kids, was mesmerized by a Diego Rivera painting, and attended her first Kids Disco. Unfortunately we didn't get a picture of Sonia break-dancing, but she really stole the show, as you can imagine.

virtual narcissism

Sonia is looking annoyed, Sanjee is falling out of the frame, but I am looking good, so it's now posted on the world wide web for all to see. Feel free to leave comments.

sitting up

At some point in the last few weeks Sonia has nearly perfected the act of sitting - and it makes life that much more exciting.

My trip to Florida

We had such a wonderful trip to Florida. Sonia was able to spend so much time bonding with her grandma, grandpa and uncle Rajiv. She loved to swim in the pool, go for her morning tour with Grandpa, sit in the kitchen with Grandma while she cooked, explore the house and make music with Rajiv. We can't wait for our next trip to Florida!

month five


My little Sony Pony - you are five months old. You love to laugh, play peek-a-boo, and listen to your favorite song in the car. In the past month you have celebrated your first Christmas, taken your first trip in an airplane to visit your grandparents in Florida and perfected your fake cough.

You follow me around the house in your walker. From room to room we go. You can't move on the carpet, so you wait for me by the doorway, coughing if I take too long. You're not yet crawling, but you are gaining strength. You get on all fours and lunge yourself forward. I leave you to play on the rug in the living room and I come back to find you wedged under the sofa, or under the Christmas tree.

You are a terrible sleeper. Because you rarely nap, bedtime for you is 6:30 p.m. Which would be fine, except that means you are ready to wake for the day at 4 a.m., sometimes five. In between those hours you wake three or four times - to eat, I suppose, and make sure you aren't missing anything. Lucky for you, you are so cute- even at four in the morning.

Bringing in the new year

To start the new year off right, we woke up early and jumped on a flight to Florida to visit Grandpa and Grandma W. Apparently Sonia travels well by air. She was a perfect angel for over three hours. She slept, she ate, she walked up and down the aisle.

When we got there she met her Florida car seat. Pink petals, eat your heart out.
