world of fun

I took Cassidy to the Harvest Fest Street Fair in Noe Valley last weekend and got to experience one of those things that happens with kids now and again: seeing them encounter something awesome for the first time. We get all jaded and busy and forget that there's a lot of simple things in life that are incredibly cool. In particular, Cassidy got his first balloon. It totally blew his little baby mind. It doesn't obey all those natural laws of physics he's been working so hard to figure out. Everything else, such as his food, seems to fall when dropped, but the balloon just floated up to the ceiling.

If that wasn't enough amazement for him, he also had a visitor - Jenny flew out from Wisconsin for a quick visit and and audience with the Young Prince. He also got some book-reading in, and was thoughtful enough to take the time to knock over the tower of blocks I'd so painstakingly constructed.

flight of the bumblebee

In today's photo gallery, we have some photos of Cassidy playing at home, some from a recent trip to Holly Park where we modeled our matching t-shirts (thanks, Holly!), Cassidy enjoying a book with Grandma Rachel, and a sneak preview of his Halloween costume, which he borrowed from Freya.

He's doing well; he cruises around all day without much fear or worry. Not much seems to bother him, and he's not afraid to try new things or meet new people. He's been trying to shake a cold for the past few days - it also managed to hit Holly and Rachel pretty hard.

My Sweet Blue-Eyed Darlin'

Sorry for the lack of updates - we've been busy.

Cassidy is doing well, although he had a bit of a cold for a few days. Just long enough to pass it on to the rest of us. He had his latest checkup last week: he's now 29 inches tall and weighs a little over 21 pounds.

On Sunday, we took him out to Hardly Strictly Bluegrass for a while, but the crowds were a bit much, so we didn't stay too long. He was a trooper, though, and enjoyed dancing to the music.

Tomorrow is his 10 month birthday - he's doing all the things babies his age do, like crawling everywhere and cramming things in his mouth and giggling like crazy when you tickle him. it's pretty cute.
