At the end of the night, our boy contemplates his candy haul. Yum yum.

Our girl was born almost a year ago today, on a beautifully sunny day. The leaves were red and orange and yellow, the sky was a clear blue, and the air felt crisp: a perfect encapsulation of autumn in the northeast. She was born at Phelps Hospital in Sleepy Hollow; the road to the hospital is lined with grand old trees which were gorgeously bright yellow, and the maternity rooms overlook part of Rockefeller Park and the Hudson River. She was born at 6 am and I remember lying in the bed that afternoon, in a ray of sunshine, holding her, looking out on the river and feeling happy and relieved and grateful.
On Saturday we went up to Rockefeller Park to celebrate Liesl's birthday by remembering her birth day. It was sweet to be there, to remember pulling into the emergency room at 5 am, for Steve to remember doing that beautiful drive under the trees to see us during the day, to look out over the water, and to watch her clambering around everywhere. Amazing how much they learn in a year. More pictures in picasa.

This is just a random video of Seb dancing. I think he has a future with Riverdance.

|We discovered that our little daredevil loves ride-on toys. She loves to be pushed around on them.|
So for her first birthday, we bought her a big car. :) She loves it.
But then, every once in a while, she calms down and sits down. She has two favorite books, both by Eric Carle - Brown Bear, and The Busy Little Spider. Here we are reading both. Interestingly, I didn't notice until watching the video that she clearly had a thought about sheep while reading the spider book and wanted to get the bear book in order to show me that there was a sheep in there too. Amazing.
