Creative Problem Solving with Delaney

Delaney found herself trapped in a maze at a local pumpkin patch recently and found herself smack dab in the middle of her own Kobayashi Maru. (If you get that reference, then you are a total nerd. Congrats!)

When faced with what she thought was an unwinnable situation, she chose to think outside the box… or in this case, the maze.


Camryn & Laney’s Laughin’

You know what comes right after baby smiles, right?  Baby gas, baby poop and baby spit up… but soon after that you get baby laughs!

Flashback: I still dare you not to laugh while you’re watching this.

Sorry Mitch… but those glasses are begging to be mocked.

Schragerpalooza 2011 – Part IV

Before the Virginia Schragers loaded up the minivan for their long trek back home, they were kind enough to agree to a sitting in an effort to capture a family photo.  After several minutes of what it must be like to herd cats, we all drank heavily.



Flashback: Cousin Lesser’s 40th Birthday Extrazaganza

To help celebrate Passover and the warmer days of Spring, I thought it would be nice to take a trip in the way-back machine to November when we got together to celebrate Cousin Leeser’s 40th Birthday Party.  Surprise!

Laney Blossoms Before Our Eyes

Laney just had her holiday photos taken and after seeing them, it made me realize how quickly she’s growing and how much she’s changed.  Below are photos of Laney at 8 months and 3 months.  Sunrise, sunset…

Yes We Did!!! Photos of the Week

I’m sorry I haven’t posted more recently, but I got the poop knocked out of me last week with some mysterious illness that I’m sure was given to me by those drooling petri dishes known as “babies” at Laney’s daycare.  They really should disinfect those things once in a while.  It’s like a room full of Outbreak monkeys.  Ew.

Then there was this election thing that some of you might have heard of.  We’re still flying high and trying to catch up on our sleep.  Laney was especially happy and made a big spalsh at school Wednesday morning with her “Obama Rocks!” shirt.  So needless to say, it’s been a bit crazy around here.

Please enjoy some fresh Laney photos for your viewing enjoyment.

Delaney Kicks the Poop Out Of Dad While Looking Cool

A Delaney By Any Other Name

… is Davida Rachel.  Now remember, that’s Hebrew, so there’s extra chhhhh in “Rachel.”  That’s right!  Our li’l Delaney Roslyn now has a Hebrew name!  As with her English one, she is named after my mother Diana and Samantha’s grandmother Rose.

Delaney, Samantha and Shawn at Temple Beth El

The weather was amazing.  Not a cloud in the sky!  Grandpa Al, Grandpa Peter, Nana Marilynn, Aunt Judy, Uncle Harvey, Aunt Laurie, Uncle Jason, Aunt Shannon and Cousin Leeser (who arrived with a full Babies R Us in her suitcase, I swear!) all braved the throngs of NASCAR fans to join us at Temple Beth El Saturday morning for a couple of Bar Mitzvahs.  The rabbi saved the best for last and Delaney slept through the entire thing!  (I have to be honest.  I completely expected her to fill her diaper explosively during a nice quiet momemt of reflection.  The acoustics were amazing and it would have been epic!  But alas.  No poop for you.)

Everyone came over to the house afterward for a wonderful day of visiting, eating, telling Bailey no, eating, taking pictures, yelling at Bailey to stop and eating.  It was great to have everyone over and I hope we can do it again really soon.  Like next week.  Seriously.  We bought too much food at Costco.  You NEED to come here next week and eat.  PLEASE!

There are obviously waaaay too many pictures to post here, so I’ll put up a selection over the weekend.  Then I’ll make an AOL gallery and you can peruse them all at your leisure.
