In honor of today’s Vikings game against the Cowboys, Tory wears Number 4. Click for a few more.
Tory loves bubbles. Bubbles in the bathtub, bubbles in his juice, and especially bubbles that come out of a jar.
Kari spends a Sunday afternoon capturing pics of Tegan crawling around in the autumn leaves. She did a similar shoot for Tory at this age, but I didn’t have my merde together with this site at the time or I’d post the link.
You know how Crayons are non toxic? Well it’s a damn good thing.
The ice cream man drove by the other night, and it being such a rare event, Sam decided to partake. And no, I don’t normally let my kid go shopping in his birthday suit. It was a swimming pool/potty training thing.
These pics are now a couple of weeks old, but we try and make it to the free concerts at Deer Valley each week. Evan, Piper, and Riley often show up too, so the evenings are most often a kid-corralling fest.
We thought we were lucky that Tory was such a good baby. So before Tegan arrived, I was nervous that the scales would level, and we’d have a little terror on our hands. HA! This little girl is the happiest, easiest baby – if all babies were this easy there would be a lot more […]
“Hoo-ray for Underpants!” – These words, uttered by Prairie Dawn in Sesame Street’s Elmo’s Potty Time, are perhaps more exiting to us than to Tory, but he seems pretty excited to wear them none-the-less. Especially since they’re styled with characters from Cars. (Speaking of which, I really should rent that one from Netflix. Tory hasn’t […]
Sophia and her parents Sam and Michelle come over to visit quite often, but this time I got a couple of pictures of the occasion. Tory and Soph played in the grass, and Soph spent a little time with Tegan. Click above for more images.
Ok, since I like tweaking this and other sites so much, I’ve gone ahead and made some changes to the site. First, since Michelle didn’t like the fact the ‘old’ gallery wouldn’t let you scroll through the picutres by using the arrow key, I’ve upgraded the the way the gallery works. While it looks nicer, […]
So I’ve heard through the grapevine that I don’t post enough pictures of Tegan. This is all very true, but that’s because she mostly just sits there, or is sleeping. I didn’t think anyone would really want to see another one of those. Apparently I was wrong. As before, click on that image up there […]
Another powder day, another kiddie swap. I took a few pics of the kids on my shift, and I’m trying out a new gallery viewer. Let me know what you think. EDIT: So I broke this post by deleting the old gallery. This new gallery is much better.
When ever Tory wears a dark pair of socks these days we get to spend a little too much time picking out the toe jam. Good concentration though.
Here’s a few more images of Tegan. She’s still mostly just eating and sleeping and relieving herself. So I guess that means she’s right on track. Click the image to view more.
We’ve been meaning to cut the boy’s hair for over a month now. Today was the day. Click on one of the images to see slightly larger versions.
If you visited the site by going to torycedar.com, you should notice above that you were redirected to the new url, toryandtegan.com. I’ll be posting everything to this site now, but will keep Tory’s domain active and pointing here. I’m also thinking of making some incremental changes to the site… it’s still only 800 pixels […]
Merry Christmas everyone – I though I’d share this picture of Tory just hanging out, reading. While I know he doesn’t understand it, it’s still neat to see him calmly reading a book. Update: By the way, that’s the Baby Owner’s Manual he’s reading. Must be getting prepped to take care of his little sister.
It should be less than a month now before we three become four, and so far, things are humming along nicely. We are planning on using the hypnobirthing method, which is sometimes thought of mainly as a pain management technique, but for us it also creates a calm and welcoming atmosphere to bring our baby into the […]
I’m just wondering if the boy plays with trains because he was born to, or because I’ve bought them for him. Yes, it’s the old ‘nature vs. nurture’ question, and if science can’t seem to figure it out then who am I to try. Starting in a little over a month we’re getting a study […]
Here’s the boy, playing with the gigantic abacus at our local park. It’s too bad these things are more like a rattly instrument to me, or maybe I’d be teaching him how to multiply with it. No, he’s not yet a math wiz or chess champion, but he is counting to ten, and it sounds […]
On Friday, I celebrated what I called ‘d300 day’ which marked our return to quality snapshots. You may recall a previous post, from July, in which I mentioned the death of my Nikon d80. Well, after months of missing out on Tory’s photographic history, a shiny new, refurbished Nikon d300 arrived just in time for […]
After losing two ceramic bowls to Tory’s wild eating habits, the brilliant idea of… wait, I can hear you thinking, “why were they using ceramic bowls to feed a child…” An understandable thought, but when you’ve gone through (read: broken) most of the “unbreakable” kids bowls, you turn in the end to what ever is […]
A couple site improvements have been made in the last week: A Better Gallery A new version of the image gallery has been created. The link is now called, of all things, “Gallery,” and it takes you to a flash version of the old “Pictures” page. This version provides a nice interface to view images, […]
