Jasmine’s First Haircut

November 16, 2009

On Saturday (11/14/09) I finally broke down and allowed for Jasmine’s first haircut. I had been trying to hold off until her first birthday as a good luck thing, but if you watch the halloween video you can see she’s in desperate need.

Surprisingly, given her general curiosity, she sat relatively still and didn’t make the haircut lady’s life too difficult.

Happy Halloween!

November 15, 2009

Happy (very belated) Halloween! While we didn’t actually trick or treat with Jasmine, mostly because we felt ridiculous carrying our 9 month old door to door asking for candy we’d obviously consume, we did dress her up. The wonderful videography here is by my good ole mom :)

Jasmine’s First Meal

July 22, 2009

As you can expect from a set of food loving parents whose main concern on their wedding day was the quality of the fare, the event you’re about to witness was one of the most anticipated by us: the introduction of solid foods.

In this case, Jasmine was fed ground up toasted brown rice cooked with water and then mixed with some formula to provide an easy transition from a purely liquid diet. And it was fed to her in a manner that shows she is clearly our first child (i.e. we had no idea what we were doing). By the end of the meal the three of us were on the same page and worked pretty well as a gastro-team. Enjoy the footage; she’s now officially part of the “food at home” tag :)

Jasmine’s Entertainment…or Ours

July 14, 2009

I swear we bought both the door jumper and the Bumbo seat with Jasmine’s interests in mind. I can only imagine how boring it must be to be a baby — if not boring then frustrating — because everything Jasmine sees is new, but she’s hardly mobile and fairly uncoordinated so she can’t get to or play with the cool new stuff.

HOWEVER, it seems that as parents we enjoy watching her try to figure out the new things more than she actually is entertained by them, which is why I now question whether we’re buying stuff for her or subconciously buying accessories to keep ourselves entertained. You be the judge :)

**You don’t need sound but hearing her grunts and squeaks are half the fun**

Jasmine’s Scuffle

July 14, 2009

I didn’t know what else to call an armless crawl that turns into a yoga pose, so if you have a better name than “scuffle” feel free to let me know :)

Happy Mother’s Day!

Not only did Jasmine let Mom (us!) sleep until 9:45 today, she had a lot to say :)

2 Month Montage

It’s a bit lengthy, but give us some credit for cutting down 60 days of her life into 8 minutes :)

This is the video we took of our moms holding Jasmine for the first time. She was less than an hour old :)

First Bath!

April 4, 2009

She’s so cute :) Just FYI she’s nearly 3 months old now so even though the video below is her first bath, I promise she’s had many baths since then!
