Keeping It Clean

It took 17 months, but we finally figured it was time to teach C some oral hygiene (don’t judge!). He had actually started several months ago at school, so we were a little late to the game adding it to his evening routine. Luckily, it’s still a fun occurrence; we shall see how long that…

Embracing the Selfie

Colin has embraced the selfie craze, learning the art of digital photography and playing to his vanity. Here are some of his early works…

Carb addict!

While C gets his fair share of fruits and (hidden) veggies, his true food love is carbs. We’re not sure whether to be proud, as he takes after mom and dad in that regard, or fearful of an overly bread-and-pasta-laden future ahead!

Colin’s First Year: By the Numbers

What do you get when you cross first-time parents who tracked all of Colin’s diapers and bottles, with an accountant father? A whole lot of data.

Hands, Touching Hands, Reaching Out…

Admit it, you’ve just been struck by the fine words of Neil Diamond and are now humming his epic Sweet Caroline. As enamored as you may be with that song, especially if you’re a Red Sox fan, it pales in comparison to Colin and his love affair with…his hands. That’s right – if he’s awake,…

Staying Busy

So, we’ve had a few adventures over the past month that may not warrant a full-on blog post. But, they were so much fun that we decided to show the love for our nearest and dearest. “B” has been the theme, with ballet, brunches, beverages out and Brewhahas…

Virtual Dubai at Your Fingertips

It appears that all those time-lapsed videos have been one-upped by a super cool virtual tour of Dubai (well, part of Dubai at least). This is the area of town that we hang out in most, as they are the closest neighborhoods to Abu Dhabi, and also near the location of Edelman’s Dubai office. Take…

How the world’s tallest building does fireworks

Go big or go home. That’s the UAE’s motto. You can see photo and video examples here with the Burj Khalifa’s fireworks display for New Years. Happy 2012! A live action shot is just a click away!
