Sophie’s travels

Sophie has, thankfully, been sleeping through the night for the past few weeks — in fact becoming a champion sleeper, sometimes sleeping as long as twelve hours. The pitfall of having two kids is that Sammy, in contrast, has been really fighting his bedtime. This is due to the increased daylight hours (bedtime is 8, but darkness is more like 9:30), plus he’s used to having his own room. (We’re still camped out in the temporary house while the remodeling work is done.)

Sophie has become a much more vocal (and strident!) babbler. In the last couple of weeks she’s learned how to sit up by herself, and she can roll over adeptly now, but still no crawling. She’s moved from baby food level 1 to 2 to 3 to real solid food quickly, and in just two days went from being unable to pick up a piece of cereal to mastering the pincer movement pretty much right on.

The other night as Kimi gave her a bath, she started splashing the water and cracking herself up. Over and over and over.

This last weekend for Father’s Day we joined up with Kyrie, Jack and Andy and headed up to Pier 39 for lunch at a crab place and a visit to the Aquarium of the Bay. A better father’s day I can’t imagine.
