Salma at the eye doctor

Went with Salma to Dr Hong today. She was great. Answered all the questions about whether the images were clear or blurry, one or two images, spread apart or lined up, etc. And she was able to sit still at the machines so that they could take pictures and analyse her eyes.

Doctor said she did the exam like a 5 year old.

Anyway, all clear. A little far sighted which is normal. But none of the lazy eye stuff her daddy has.

Mommy! Daddy Farsi balad-e

Last night at dinner Salma came to the conclusion that I actually do speak Farsi. Woo Hoo!

And now for a musical interlude...

Ameneh and David sent a great video for Salma and Mani from London. A day in the life from chocolate, fish and mushrooms in Borough an blistery evening with the not so itsy bitsy spider at Tate Modern interspersed with performances from street musicians and other cool stuff. It's really well done. I've excepted a musical interlude that I'm sure Buby and Zaida will enjoy very much. Enjoy.

Fun in December

Everyone has been sick these past few weeks. Mani had an ear infection, Salma had 9 days of fever up to 103, Zahra and I got some kind of chest cold. Quite a cacophony some nights at home.

But recently we've started getting better. And to celebrate, I straightened my hair (Don't worry... just temporary). BTW, tomorrow we're off to Palm Springs for a few days.

Playing peek a boo with Mani

As Mani continues his development he's becoming more and more fun. Now walking he's also playing with us a lot more intentionally. Recently we've been handing things back and forth and here's a little video of "where's Mani?".

Happy Birthday Mani

Yesterday was Mani's first birthday. No big party. Just Friday night dinner with the family including Ali who captured the moment with Zahra's new Flip Video ultra

Mani has started walking!

It's been amazing to watch as Mani learns to walk. Over the last few weeks he has been working on standing up and walking on his own. At this point he can take about 8 steps before falling.

Salma likes to help him and gets excited when he stands and walks on his own.

Visiting Dr. Nasr

Last week we went to visit Dr. Nasr and Shiva joon in Sacramento. Salma and Mani loved watching the chickens and picking all the fruit off the trees.


Sorry for the long pause between posts. I've loaded a bunch of halloween pictures into a picasa web album. Check out my first pumpkin!
