Visit to Mom's Office

Daddy thought it would be nice for Hannah to know that Mom has another job other than Milk Dispenser, so a few days ago we visited Mom at work!

Hannah got to meet some of Mom's super cool co-workers.

Doesn't she look right at home in Juli's arms?

Sorry to everyone we missed! We'll stop by again soon I'm sure.

Her Mother's Daughter

Some of you have mentioned that Hannah's hair is insane and she must have inherited that particular feature from her Dad. Not so! Check out these comparison photos of mom at 4 months with their Lolas:

I still can't get over the resemblance!

Sibling Rivalry

We tried to formally introduce Hannah and Shady to each other, but as soon as Hannah got in Shady's personal space, Shady hissed at Hannah! Shady, we're cutting you out of our will...

Open Letter to Nikon and/or Canon

Dear Nikon and/or Canon,

I'm writing this letter to thank you for the stellar products you have been offering the average consumer. I use both your cameras for this blog. However, I do think there is room for improvement.

The best ideas are usually the most simple. Take the Nintendo Wii for example -- its motion sensitive controller is an idea that's simple yet this feature is one millions of people didn't know they wanted. I think you know how they turned out. Well, I have an idea that is as equally revolutionary for your cameras and will undoubtedly give one of your companies -- whoever decides to adopt it first -- a clear advantage over the other.

I'm talking, of course, about Booger Reduction.

Think about it. Millions of people purchase your cameras in order to catch the first few months of their child's lives. And let's face it, babies are booger factories. Using our daughter as an example, Hannah cries loudly and stops suddenly several times a day. This is a recipe for mucus. In fact, half the pictures we take of her have boogers in them. Booger Reduction will remove all those unsightly snot bombs from these snapshots and make everyone's photos more family friendly.


Think of how much the user-friendly feature known as Red Eye Reduction made your cameras much more accesible to the American public. No Photoshop skills necessary! Booger Reduction will do the same.

You now have the knowledge to make millions of dollars and obliterate the competition. All I ask is a small donation for this unfallible idea. You can make a donation through Paypal on this blog. All proceeds will go to Hannah's Berkeley Education Fund. Thanks again.

Neil
Hannah's Dad/Super Genius

Bumbo Time!

Hannah can now hold her head up! Actually she was able to a few weeks ago, but she's only now starting to enjoy being in the Bumbo. And I've been a lazy poster for those two holiday weeks.

We're looking forward to walks with Hannah in a Baby Bjorn! Fortunately, Auntie Jenny sent us hers just in time. Thanks Jenny!

New Year's At The Park

Happy New Year everyone! We hope you all kicked off the new year right! As for us, we kept it pretty mellow.

It's tradition for us to have mochi with the folks on New Years Day. Unfortunately, we couldn't all meet up this time. So instead, Daddy made the next best thing: Spam Musubi!

Next, we did something special -- we went to the park for the first time! The reason it took so long is that our nearest park is a half-hour by foot. It is such a long trip that Hannah fell asleep on the way there!

It was fun for Hannah because she got to see a lot of other kids playing. And fun for mommy and daddy because we got to pig out on ice cream! There goes my new years resolution...

Keeping Up With The Grandmases

After our stay in Irvine we headed over to Palm Springs to see Lola!


Lola was even nice enough to play with Hannah for a few hours while Mom and Dad saw a movie -- their first one since Hannah was born! The movie? The Frieda Pinto vehicle: Slumdog Millionaire!
POP QUIZ: what was the last movie Mom and Dad saw before Hannah was born? Hint: It's listed on this blog ("Last Minute Fun" to be exact).

Afterwards we made out to our final Grandpa and Grandma stop. Grandpa Bruce and Grandma Eva both had colds so they suggested we meet them at their office instead of their germ-infested home.
From the looks of it I think Grandpa suspects Grandma has SARS.

To all at City Hall, although we wanted to, we sincerely apologize for not being able to stop by. Our schedule was just too tight!
