Christmas in New York

We spent Christmas this year at my parents' house in Washingtonville, an hour outside of Manhattan. It is a quiet little village that is diametrically opposite in terms of activity than the city, which during the holidays is a gargantuan mass of writhing humanity. (note to self: add "writhing" to my list of grossest words).

Anyway, in no particular order, the grand picture tour. Pictured above is the tree at 30 Rockefeller Center. I would guess a good 30 thousand people crammed the square around the famous ice skating rink. Thankfully far less were in the bathroom at the Banana Republic across the street.

Craig (big) and Noah (little), at Bear Mountain State Park. Combined IQ: at least 400.


Riding the park carousel.


I think everyone would agree that Nintendo's Wii is insanely fun, or at least a giant step above mindless and socially degenerative video games. At the very least, it is the first console that makes it fun for nonplayers to watch participants as they swing and jab at the air with boundless enthusiam, writhing in primal ferocity.


Seriously, don't you get that from this picture?

Returning to the city, here's a sample of two spiritual centers of Manhattan.


Then there's me looking across the Hudson at Jersey.

Tiffany-Ann at the Winter Gardens in the World Financial Center.

Sculptures in Battery Park City. Doesn't she look terrified?

Dad and Claire


Noah looking fierce as a Potato-head pirate. I was actually kind of nervous at this point. I think he really wanted to stab me with that little plastic sword. Don't laugh: it was HARD plastic.

Still Growing!

Ok - so people keep requesting us to post more pictures of me. I guess everyone just wants to see how fat I'm getting. So here you go... This is me at 25 weeks.
