I has a foot

So many limbs to choose from... If only they wouldn't squirm so much. I want to eat them all. (We think that is what he is saying with that little grunt there...)

Happy St. Patrick's Day!

Come here till I tell you now, won't it be St. Patrick's day before you know it, and Himself (the babby) is getting quare excited over the whole thing. Pure losing the run of himself he is. We can't get him to wear anything but green these days, but sure doesn't it suit him:

With Leo wearing that, we can't put half a step outside the door without Yankee lassies throwing themselves on him - it's a sight and a half, I tell you. Still, the wee lad bears it all with good grace. He asked us to pass on a St. Patrick's day greeting he made specially for you. We didn't even realize he could type yet, let alone do 3D video rendering. Honestly, there's no keeping up with the kids these days, at all at all.

PS Many thanks to Marina Cunningham for giving us the lovely outfit!

Noemi gets a haircut

M'amie Annie, Leo and Noemi went on a walk yesterday. Leo looked angelic while he slept, and a little mischievous when he woke up. Noemi got a haircut (finally!). And M'amie Annie documented the proceedings with these lovely photos.

Leo's Beautiful Blue Coat

My mother made an astonishingly beautiful coat for Leo. It really matches his eyes. He looks very elfin in it. Watch out or he may just steal your shoes this St. Patrick's Day! We have observed him tugging at his feet, so he may be practicing...

the Boston branch

We all trooped up to Boston this weekend. Noemi's dorm was celebrating its 40th year and 10th birthday (it opened its doors on a leap day). And we took the opportunity of visiting our good friends -- Auntie Rebecca was very happy to see little Leo again, now a lot bigger. And Tio Eduardo took us to not one but TWO cafes. Yes, Leo is definitely part of the Tea Conspiracy now... Unlike most conspiracies, the Tea Conspiracy is very public: the first -- and only! -- rule of the Tea Conspiracy is that you talk about the Tea Conspiracy. Ad nauseam. Seriously. You never shut up about it. There isn' t even any time to drink tea, let alone conspire.
