I was looking back at my recent entries to see what photos I posted last of the kids; Vivien looks so young in her most recent one — from May! Three months later, she's sleeker, more mobile, more defined and more expressive. She's tentatively free-standing, waving at people, laughing at people having fun and working on tooth #9 (about the same pace as Oscar; I hope she's a little kinder to her teeth than he was at one). She'll be one year old next week (already!). Here are some pictures of the family since that last one.

Vivien can balance on things and Oscar can happily cope with her in his personal space (if he's having fun):

Oscar and Vivien on our rocking horse, with Elizabeth looking on.

Once in a while, multi-person naps are still possible (but not often):

Three beautiful people all sleeping on our little couch.

An action shot of Renaissance Oscar:

Oscar traipsing around the living room in a vest with a recorder.

Vivien contemplating how to best use a bottle:

What it says in the caption!

I'm on vacation starting today for a week and a half; we have lots planned: camping, helping friends, seeing people, taking care of kids, vaccinations for Vivien, and if all goes well some relaxation, re-connecting and recharging. I feel like I left work in pretty good shape; they'll survive without me but likely appreciate the things I got done. Life is exhausting and kind of exciting these days, even if it's objectively full of mundane.

i'm glad we're not the only ones whose older child still sometimes has issues with his personal space and the baby!!! it's very hit and miss around here, although rusty has gotten SO much better than the early days. the hard moments just still stand out, you know?

You folks make a great family... I'm happy for you. Enjoy the vacation!
