Back by Popular Demand


Grandmas really like baby photos in blog posts, but because our computer is no longer functional there has been a major lack of baby pictures, or any pictures for that matter, on the blog. The computer, which Vlad thinks was struck by lightning in the giant electrical storm we had a couple of weeks ago, is still on the fritz, and we won't be able to get it fixed any time soon. So I have been forced to try to blog from the iPad, a less conducive medium. I am trying out a couple of different apps to see which one works best, so please be patient with any technical difficulties.

In other news, we are back in the marina for a couple of weeks. Vlad is doing some work to the toe rail that just couldn't get done at anchor, and he is also doing some little fix it things like getting rid of our only leak and giving the engine some love.

On the baby front, we are really enjoying the six-month stage. Jari is just too much fun! He's curious about everything and has a penchant for dogs and hermit crabs. And toes. And the marina key cards. And sea birds. And books. And dinghy rides. And the baking utensils that make up his awesome percussion band. If it's active or going places, he's down.

And talk about mobile, I can't leave him alone on the bed anymore, and he is working on crawling in the marina's lounge area, the only spot we can find with a decent amount of floor space. He is also living it up in solid food land, which is a delight in Mexico. So far, he's had papaya, apples, pears, apricots, sweet potatoes, tomatoes, spinach, leeks and potatoes, zuchini, grapefruit, eggs, fish, yogurt, curries and the list goes on. His favorite to this point is banana cooked in coconut milk with rice cereal. And his most hated is avocado. I'm not sure what happened, but he's decided that we are trying to kill him when we feed him avocado. Babies, quien sabe!

Here are some more baby photos to appease the grandmas.
