Emmett's First Meal

We started Emmett on rice cereal last night paired with a nice, bright '07 Grenache Blanc. Just kidding. It was an '08 Vermentino, Grenache Blanc would've never worked...

He seemed to be a natural at eating and knew exactly where the food was. Check out the footage below!

Here's a quick, cute, toe-grabbing-good time with a special guest.

Winter Hat

We were recently in Brooklyn and went out for a walk in Prospect Park. It was a little cold so Emmett needed to wear a hat.  As you can see he doesn't care for hats or the sun all that much. So displeased.

Emmett Smash

Here's a quick video from a couple of weeks ago.  Emmett at the time had just learned to bang on things.  Also please excuse the vertical orientation, I was holding the phone upright.

Jeezum Snow

My. What was supposed to be a decent snowing of  8 - 10 inches became a walloping 2 feet of wet, wet snow. The hats on these floodlights are good example of how wet.

It only took a couple of hours for the power to go out. Thankfully a propane fueled generator has been keeping the lights and the intertubes on for the last 2 days.  We've had actual power for 8 of the last 48 hours.

That's the buried car. We uncovered it just a few moments ago.

The barn all snow covered.

More objects covered in snow.

The dog, shoulder deep.

This is the canyon to the front door.  Poor The O she can't see a thing!

And here's the inspection team making sure everything is done correctly.
