We are welcoming a new addition to our growing family. Oliver Avery was born on Saturday June 26 at 330 in the afternoon, weighing in at a whopping 8lbs 11onzs. He is definitely showing is own separate baby personality, very different than Emma. Emma just can't get enough of her little brother, but atleast she has camp for a distraction. Enjoy some baby pictures.

Our last London visitors where Jill and her mother Carolyn. We were so happy when they arrived and enjoyed spending the time with them while they were here. I also appreciated their help as Adam was away on business for 2 weeks during that time. Jill and Carolyn would take Emma to Nursery every day then head out to site see. I would pick up Emma and we would spend a quite evening together.

This is a late post but I thought people would like to see pics.
We celebrated Adam's 33rd in London. We dropped Emma off with Greg R, who gracefully watched her for us at the IC London Center. Then Adam and I escaped for a couple hours to go see a cirque show. Very neat to see the show performed at the Royal Albert Hall. Such a beautiful space. Afterwords we all got back together and went to a Thai Pub for dinner...YUM.

Went to Camden town this past weekend to walk around and hang out. It was ever so cold out side and I was constantly fighting Emma to wear here mittens. We also tried out this new restaurant for lunch called Hummus Bros. Wow was it delicious, just bowls of hummus with interesting toppings. I had the hummus with guacamole...yum. Emma was kinda in dipping heaven. After lunch we fought the crowds to get through the market, didn't really buy anything. I think we went for more of a day out than shopping trip. Went and watched the canal boats go through the Camden locks. I think Adam was jealous and was reminiscing and teaching Greg R all about the locks and controlling them. Of course by that point Emma was sound asleep...too bad for her.
Good day out with family and a friend.

Well the day has come when Emma is now old enough to join in a school. We signed Emma up for a Nursery School down the street from us here in
And back on a plane we go, as we now journey back to the states for Christmas. We head to
And Back to London – The Actual Birthday Celebration! Unfortunately Mommy had to work that Saturday, but left early to come home and celebrate with her 2 year old; with a yummy dinner and a great chocolate cake. We were also lucky to have 2 lovely guests join us for dinner. Greg and Jon were in London, Greg will be teaching at the Ithaca College London Center this term.
Emma loved her new lady bug to ride though out the house and she also got her 1st piece of luggage, I guess she is truly a world traveler (she should be with around 75,000 air miles of her own).
And thanks to Aunt Kit Kit for making all those yummy cupcakes!!
We had a nice long holiday in November, when we made the long trek back to the states for Thanksgiving. We were able to spend lot of time with family and friends and made it around to see most of them. Also on our agenda when we were home was to put our Riverdale Co-Op on the market. I guess we are finally out growing our tiny apartment or we have just gotten spoiled with the house we have in
For Thanksgiving we were very lucky to have been invited to Becky and Jason’s house, were the Klein, Richardson’s and Gwen were all brought together. Emma got to play with her cousins all day long, playing dress up with
This morning we were happy to welcome Grandma Susan and Grandpa Bob from
The a waited event was one we had been planning for months, the Canal Boat Trip. All 5 of us packed our bags and boarded a canal boat in Bath. We spent 4 days on the river Avon, stopping in at cities and testing our muscles against the
