Linda was kind enough to email us some of the photos she took in Boston

Check them out here

Back from Boston- visited Mackenzie Danielle Chin- A tiny baby, considering what we're used to.  A tad over 6 pounds.  Aidan seems to be taking things in stride, but we'll see what happens when the baby gets home.  Jacky's head is quite yucky.  Just saw a dermatologists, and we've started putting some prescription oil on her head.  Hopefully it will help.  She is definitely much more smiley nowadays.  Xander can make her laugh pretty regularly now.

Anyway, forgot to bring batteries for the camera, so no pics until someone sends a few to me.

We'll be heading out to San Fran in the end of April

A few milestones- Xander tried juice- and he liked it.  First cranberry, then apple juice.  Of course, he may have said he liked it just to please us, because he still asks for water at all meals.  Water is better for him anyway. 

Jacky is definitely more interactive nowadays.  I can actually make her smile, although it takes a herculean effort on my part.  Xander can make her laugh very hard by playing hide and seek while pretending to be a monster.  Its very cute

More pics up on the family page

Jacky is definitely more smiley these days (she evens smiles for daddy!).  We had a visit from Madhu and Swarna last weekend- their kids are cuties- Anand is 3 and Vikram is 2 weeks older than Jacky.  Jacky is taking well to solid foods (she has switched to oatmeal).  We are pondering what to do for Xander's spring break in the last week of April- perhaps we'll go visit some friends we haven't seen in a while...

We will likely be going up to Boston in a few weeks to meet Xander and Jacky's new cousin!

Jacky is getting more interactive, and is able to reach for things and pick her head up more.  Dark Yee yee came to visit us, and both Jacky and Xander were very happy to see her.  Jumbo Jac is settling into a schedule- Janet now feeds her rice cereal about 4 times a day, and she seems to enjoy it, although she may be allergic.

Anyway, check out the pics on the family page

Jacky is getting over her recent illness, so she is not so crazy these days.  She is also bigger than every other baby we've met. 

Xander went to the dentist for the first time in a while.  Bad teeth.  Needed 2 fillings, and might need a root canal eventually.  Also many small cavities that weren't filled.  Ugh.  No more candy for him- so don't offer it to him.

Either way, more pics on the family page, and some new halo footage up on the halo section- use the navigation at the bar at the top to get there.

Just got back from our trip to Boston.  Good times, crying babies.  Jacky has picked up the same bug Aidan had and is now a terror.  Anyway, I put links to the pictures on the family page.

An interesting set of visual/computer puzzles here- I'm stuck at number 8.

Jacky really likes it at home.  Sleeps through the night and everything.  Maybe we just won't leave the house for another few months.

Do you know what we need?

Answer here...

Just put in a guest book (one of those standard frontpage ones).  Feel free to tell me what you think, and leave a suggestion, comment, or rant. 

Xander took his entrance exam for the Delta program (advanced placement) last Sunday.  He said it was so easy, but time will tell- he was able to tell me some of the questions he didn't know the answers to " if there are 20 shells, and 1 person takes 15 and another person takes 2 how many are left?"

Here's an interesting psychology test for all of you out there: 1 question:

This is not a trick question. It is as it reads.

A woman, while at the funeral of her own mother, met this guy whom she did not know. She thought this guy was amazing. She believed him to be her dream come true and she fell in love with him right there but did not ask for his number and no matter how hard she tried she could not find him again. A few days later she killed her sister. Question: What is her motive in killing her sister?

Give this some thought before you look at the answer.

In other news, our couch has arrived!  The house is starting to feel a little more like home.  Probably in a week the first floor will be all done.  Next will come the room full of boxes on the second floor.  You can see us on the new couch here.

Jumbo Jack Jack had an appointment today- she is now 16.6 pounds.  Due to her yucky head, Janet has decided to give her a new look, which can be seen here.

More Halo vids, from the last clan match- even though we tied, it was a moral victory

Jacky is either incredibly happy and cute, or crazy angry.  There is no middle ground.  New Halo movie up
