Vacation Firsts

We're back in Delhi after two blissful weeks in Thailand. We had a very exciting time spending two solid weeks with our boys with no work to do. Love the  family time!
While we were away on vacation, here are some things the boys started doing:
  • Ezra started walking -- tentatively, and only about 5-10 steps at a time. But, yes, walking! 
  • Cedric and Ezra started giving kisses. Cedric started this a few days ago, and Ezra picked it up today. Cedric had a pretty serious make-out session with a little Finnish toddler in the airport yesterday. 
  • Cedric started using sign language more and more consistently. 
  • Ezra started holding his breath and putting his head under water in the pool.
  • Cedric comforted Ezra by gently patting him on the head when he was crying. 
  • Both boys really enjoyed playing and interacting with other kids that they met at the resort.
  • Both boys are starting to establish their independence especially by showing possession of toys and other play objects. In other words, we're going to have to learn to share. 
  • Both boys did extremely well crawling up and down stairs for the first time. I realized while we were on vacation that our kids don't interact with stairs at all during their day-to-day lives. 
  • Both boys were very picky eaters for the entire vacation, which is not the case when we're at home. I can only hope that this was an anomaly and not the beginning of a new trend.  

There's more to be said, but we'll save other travel info for future posts.  

Cheers and Happy 2013, 


  1. Happy 2013 to you all. You vacation sounds wonderful and the boys are really growing.

  2. Yay Ezra! Yay Cedric! Yay Ezra AND Cedric! and Yay for being such awesome daddies! So glad you all got to enjoy such wonderful family time! Hugs from the states!

  3. They're growing so quickly! I love that they are interacting with each other. BROTHERS!

  4. Happy New Year! they are getting so big, cute picture x

  5. As a sign language interpreter I'm most excited about the signing! I was warned by my doctor that between 12 and 18 months the picky eating starts. Good luck and let's hope it was just an anomaly.
