Weekend Pictures

First off, here are two pictures of Mitzi and David after finishing the MS150 this weekend. Although the first day of the ride was rained out, it is a fantastic fund-raising event and athletic event. We're proud of our family for participating. The links to the right will be active until the middle of May if you just realized you wanted to donate to the cause.

Asher tabulates votes for lunch location:

And Chiara (wearing my favorite of little kid clothing - a romper) climbs up the toy shelf and onto the window sill. I'm sure it sends a mixed message but I couldn't help wanting to get a picture of her signing more while I said please sit down. You know she's thinking, "You said sit down. I'm sitting now." If you say "sit down" or "get down" she will say it back to you even if she doesn't do what she said. And if you say "sit down or lay down" she will incline her head like she's taking a nap.

Chiara loves to be naked. We have to put clothes on her for the purpose of taking pictures. In this case, we managed to get a diaper on her and she took it off the moment we stopped taking pictures. I felt like these pictures were tastefully modest but I bet they still embarrass the heck out of her when she starts dating or gets married or wins a Nobel Peace Prize.

Last night, after dinner Chiara started spontaneously trying to do somersaults (Rollies in our house). I don't know if she and Rachel have been working on them but she seemed to know what she was trying to do. She would laugh and clap after each attempt.

And here's a random cute picture of the baby in a produce box.

A Ride on Shoulders or the Totem Pole

Yesterday walking from where we ate lunch to where we parked our car, Rachel plopped Chiara on Asher's shoulders. Both kids loved it even if the baby couldn't balance well enough without Rachel's help.
