Hai's first base ball game!

Hai got to meet "Lou Seal" the Giants' mascot. That was clearly the highlight. I'm not sure he actually knew there were players on the diamond.

I enjoyed my beer and hotdog, of course :-)

Love all - Melissa

Farmer's Market & Dim Sum on Sunday

Hi all -

Yesterday we went to the Mountain View Farmer's market and Hai got an Elmo balloon - after trying to take the money from the balloon guy while we waited, the balloon man produced a complete Elmo for Hai without making him wait in the line of 4 little girls all wanting princess balloons.

Mom ended up carrying the balloon later in the day... of course.

Lila! Lila!

Lila came to visit last Friday night. We had a great time eating pizza and hanging out. Hai has been saying "Lila, Lila, Lila!" ever since. When we come home to our parking lot he says "hi, Lila", "bye, Lila" (that's where he saw her first and said his last goodbyes). When he looks at the shells in the bathroom or sees the flowers Lila clipped in our house he points at them and says "Lila, Lila!" When he eats leftover pizza he says "Lila, Lila!". I think he's a little obsessed. Maybe Lila is Hai's first crush.

Anyway, we had a wonderful time and we are happy we were lucky enough to spend some precious hours with Lila - I think we got 12 of the 36 she actually spent in the Bay Area!

Love all,

Melissa & Hai

Milestone - caution, Mommy moment!

Last night we had a major milestone. Hai went pee pee in the toilet for the first time! He had just had his bath and he asked to put the kid's seat on the toilet. He got up, held mom's hands and then.... there it was! My little boy isn't a baby any more.

I think we probably have Christina to thank for Hai being such an early learner - he seems to follow her into the bathroom several times a day. When I tell him how proud I am of him, he says "thank you". It's almost too cute.

He wanted to try again this morning, but we were not as successful, but he's definitely motivated. He knows that he can ask me or Bebe (his nanny) if he wants to go now, so I suspect we'll be spending a bit of time in the lavatory going forward...

So, time to buy some pull ups I guess. He seems to be ready.


Love all,

Lemos Farms in Half Moon Bay

Saturday we went to "Lemos Farm" with Maria and Christina - this is our family photo as we rode the train. Hai had a great time playing with all the toys and running around feeding the goats. Christina particularly liked the pony rides!
