Simon is 7 Months old and Happy New Year!

Happy 2011!!!!
2010 was the most amazing year for us and we can't wait to see what 2011 has in store.
This was an exciting month for Simon. He got to spend time with family, friends and also celebrate his first Hanukkah, Christmas and New Years! It was a very busy month to say the least.
We had a fun play date with Jessica and her kids Peyton and Landon. Auntie Stephanie came with cousins Dennie and Jackson. It was a whole lotta boys and adorable Peyton. Simon loves to watch bigger kids play. As a matter of fact, it is really the only time he sits still. He is constantly wiggling around, but if a bigger kid is around this boy is mesmerized.

We also went to the Museum of Science and Industry with some dear friends and Nonna and Cousin Will. Simon absolutely loved it. He got to "meet" Bert and Ernie at the Jim Henson exhibit.

He even rode a cow at the farm exhibit

Here's one of all the kids. From left is Sebastian, Will (Simon on his lap trying to take Sebastian's cup) Justin and Fletcher.

Simon, my angel are such a treasure. Over the last month you have changed a lot. You are starting to scoot around which is adorable. You also started really making clear sounds like "Da Da" and "Goo". Of course it is nonsensical at this point, but Mommy likes to say you are "talking". You imitate us all of the time especially when we say "Hi". You like to say "Hi" back. You started on more foods this month and you love it all so far. Auntie Gabrielle says that you have a "spark" and I think that is the perfect way to describe you. You are a truly special boy.

I love you with all of my heart,


  1. Happy New Year dear Simon (& his parents, too) You just get cuter & cuter!! Can't wait to see you at the end of this month.
