Twice around the block

Matilda does a couple laps around her new toy.

Notice that she comes quite close to the doorway and then spits up just a bit at the end.

Mati falls asleep on Matt in the magical carrier.

Matt enjoys the quiet and takes time to read.

Mati headbutted both Kieran and Leo at playgroup.

Not sure if she was guarding her space or being affectionate.

Close up

This is one of the many pics that we take daily and email to Matt while he's at work.

Matilda practices her downward facing dog.

Crawling and clapping

This week Matilda has perfected her crawling and clapping. It's been an exciting week.

Here she demonstrates her crawling.

Poor cow

Mati is practicing her crawling and standing. To make things more interesting and difficult, she likes to have something in each hand at all times.

Here Mati holds Cow and another stuffed favorite while getting ready for lift off.

Presidio hike with GGMG

Matt, Mati, and I joined some Golden Gate Moms (and Dads) for a hike through the Presidio.

Matilda tried to stay cool on this hot weekend.

9-month check-up

While waiting for the pediatrician, Matt and Mati smile for the camera.

Matilda is definitely bigger compared to her 6-month check-up.

Dark side

Darth Vader makes me smile.

It looks like he's looking at Mati and just about to grab her. Uninterested in the large man in black, Mati continues to gnaw on the carrier.

15 May, 2009

Matilda opens the box of fruit and veges from Farm Fresh To You.

More zzzzz...

Mati fell asleep in the Ergo on our way to meet Matt at the bus stop.

Mati gets her Zs.

This past week she has had the sniffles.

Leo and Matilda

Here's a pic of Matilda playing with her friend Leo while Matt and I were out on a date.

It looks like they are either dancing and singing or wrestling.

Mati takes a stroll around the neighborhood.

She now likes to have something in each hand. Here she holds on to her hat and cow blanket.

Laughing Matilda

Matt makes Matilda laugh.

Strong baby contest

The table-o-fun is meant to stay in one place with Matilda revolving around it.

Instead, Mati is strong enough to pull the table with her across the room.

Say cheese

Matilda smiles for the camera and shows off her two bottom teeth.

Golden Gate

Here's our view as the fog rolls in.

Ergo carrier

Matilda seems to like her new Ergo carrier.

Unlike the Bjorn, Mati needs to look to the side to see. However, it does include a sleeping hood that really works.

03 May, 2009

Younger friends

Matilda hangs out with a few of her younger friends.

Funny, what a difference a couple months makes at this age. In a few short years, they will all be in the same grade.

02 May, 2009


Matilda plays with her new table-o-fun. I'm actually not sure what to call it, but it allows Mati to stand, walk, and spin around.

The pics are a bit blurry as she is not quite tall enough and standing on her tip toes.

Academy of Sciences

Matt and I enjoy an evening out sans Matilda at the California Academy of Sciences. Although, we did see a few robots, we did not see the drink-mixing robot.

Many thanks to Katherine, Kevin, and Leo for watching Mati.
