FOUR MONTHS




Nova is 4 months old today! I have feeling more and more of these photos will feature both children, as it's impossible to keep Gus off of her these days.

AT LEAST THAT'S SETTLED


Nova looks like me.



Gus looks like Poppa.


(please excuse the poor quality of the photos from the 80s - they're each a photo of a photo, so you can't ask for much)

(photos of Gus & Nova were taken recently by Craig, and we'll share more with you soon!)

KIDS!

CHILDREN'S MUSEUM

Gus and I went to the children's museum this week. We had a lot of fun!

The ice fishing pond:



A fox!


There's a pretty great view from the 4th floor.


Gus got to drive a bus!


And look! He stopped at Hymie's!






The water display was a big hit,


but not nearly as cool as the skyway on the walk back to the car!

SHARING

Now that Nova can hold onto toys, we're trying teach Gus to let her have a turn with some of his toys.


She thinks the dinos taste the best.

MOVIE NIGHT!


There's nothing like pj's, a good movie, and a bowl of popcorn. Just ask Gus!

GUS TOO


Gus is cute too, but he doesn't really like to sit still and smile for the camera.

SMILES FROM NOVA




I hope you don't mind that I keep reminding you how adorable we think Nova is. Those baby smiles are just so delightful!

SKYPE


Gus & his cousin Jonah can now talk on Skype and see each other. I thought this was a great idea, but Gus doesn't quite get that Jonah isn't in the room. An all out tantrum ensued after we hung up - he kept trying to open the computer, crying "Jonah? Jonah?" Maybe this has to wait until he's a little older.

BEETS

I've searched, but I can't find last year's post about canning beets. Either we didn't post about it, or it's no longer there. Alas - we finally got around to digging up this year's beets!


Gus helped (as always!)




Poppa & Gus did the canning while I ran the store yesterday.


(Gus helped by sitting still.)




5 big jars of pickled beets. Yum!

FALL CON

We went to Fall-Con last weekend. Gus got a Godzilla, which he calls a dinosaur.

We saw Yoda,

and the Batcycle. Wow!

NEW BIKE




Poppa found this on the way home from the store the other day. It needs a little repair, and after that Gus will be tearing around the yard (as soon as we can teach him how to pedal...)
