Dylan of two cities

In the interest of making sure there are always up-to-date baby pictures on the blog, here's a pic of Dylan taken by my father George in Toronto:
Here's a picture taken at Larry and Galit's wedding in the Media courthouse (near Philly). Thanks to the Taves for getting Dylan his fancy attire.

Back from back east

We just got back on Saturday from our Grand Tour of Toronto and Philadelphia where we took Dylan to visit his extended family. It feels like we're bringing back a very different baby than we left with.  He seems to be acknowledging the cats, and he can hold up his head on his own, more or less.  He's also sleeping longer than before we left, leading me to have visions of actually getting things done!

We plan to post plenty of pictures from our trip, but here are a couple to get started.  This is a shot of the whole Fono (+Fromm) clan, taken by Robyn.
Here are the three Fromm grandsons, taken at Eli and Dorothy's house.

One more cute picture...

This didn't really fit in with the other posts but is worthy of sharing.  Dylan is somewhat ambivalent about being worn in a sling, but he sure is cute in it.

Into the double digits!

Yesterday was also Dylan's 2-month doctors appointment at 8 weeks old.  He weighed in at 10 lb 1 oz, putting him in the 19th percentile (up from the 7th when he weight 6 lb).  The doctor is very pleased with his growth, especially since he's almost entirely off formula now. She's also pleased with his development and his big smile. He also received his first vaccines, and we're very proud of how brave he was.

Dylan's first Hanukkah

Yesterday was the last night of Hannukah. Dylan was suitably impressed by the full array of lit candles.
Here he is playing with his first toy, a gift from Grandma and Grandpa.

Dylan's namesake

Dylan's middle name is Rigel, which is the brightest star in the constellation Orion, which first rises in October.

Due to our schedules and light pollution and objects obscuring the horizon, we hadn't actually managed to see Rigel until now. Lorien was leaving the house to run an errand earlier this hour and pointed out that Orion was visible in the sky. Including Rigel. We took Dylan out to show him.

No pictures -- I really don't have suitable equipment for astronomy photography, even if we lived out in the boonies.
