“In daylight, in sunsets, in midnights, in cups of coffee” (Rent)

Saturday, January 31st, 2009

I was looking through old pictures this morning because Evan and Sophie woke up at 4:00 AM. They and JP fell asleep again – but I didn’t! I thought I would post a couple of pictures from the days that Evan and Sophie were born. Time goes by so quickly now, yet it seems like […]

So Evan is growing up and wanting to do so many things on his own. Here’s our first video for the site… [flv:evan3.flv 320 240]

“Pick a little, Talk a little” (Music Man)

Wednesday, January 28th, 2009

Sunday night we went to dinner at friends house Hank, Scott and Charlotte. Evan got to play with Charlotte’s toys including a really cool airplane that he could sit on, hit a button, and make the propeller turn! Evan also got to try his hand at playing a real guitar courtesy of Hank. He loved!! […]

“from the day we arrive on the planet” (Lion King)

Wednesday, January 28th, 2009

Angela came to visit for the weekend. Evan very easily identifies her as “Mom” through the pictures we show him. They  – well mostly Evan – love to play with her and she is always happy to oblige. As usually, we went to playground, and out to dinner for pasta – Evan was a little […]

“These are a few of my favorite things” (Sound of Music)

Sunday, January 25th, 2009

Saturday morning we went to “Habitot” in Berkeley where we met all the other families in our “gay dad’s meet-up group”. We haven’t seen many of them for a long time so it was great to see how all the kids had grown! Evan and Sophie had a great time. Evan loved the “diner” part […]

“It Might as Well Be Spring” (State Fair)

Tuesday, January 20th, 2009

MLK day meant a long weekend in Fair Play.  David Parker joined us for the weekend, and we had a wonderful time enjoying the weather, good food, wine, and fun outdoors and in with the kids.  The weather was stunning, and flowers have started to bloom! Namely roses and camellias… We had two amazing lunches […]

26 Days and Counting…

Thursday, January 15th, 2009

Thursday night Brad and Kathy came for dinner. Their little (unamed) girl is due in just 26 days! Hard to believe this might be our last dinner together before their little bundle of joy arrives! Needless to say – we can’t wait to meet her!  We made pizzas – or as Brad likes to call […]

Evan LOVES blueberries. Blueberries for breakfast, blueberries in Jam, and blueberries as a snack anytime of day are all good as far as he is concerned. Toast in the morning with Blueberry Jam is a favorite at the moment!

“When lifes a dizzy Maze” (You’re a Good Man Charlie Brown)

Wednesday, January 14th, 2009

Hard to believe that it is already January 14th. Evan turned 19 months old yesterday! After both kids being sick at the beginning of the year. Sophie continued to get worse until she had to go into the hospital last Friday. She had bronchitis, and needed to be on Oxygen in order to maintain a […]

2009 – off to a rough start

Thursday, January 1st, 2009

We left Fair Play on Tuesday to head back to the city.  On the way home, Sophie threw up three times. We knew we were in for something – but weren’t sure what. Turns out, there is some ‘bug’ going around the Bowik house. Though Sophie seemed to be fine after those episodes – Evan […]
