I’ve been using moving boxes to help quarantine Kaya in certain rooms while I unpack so I can keep an eye on her.  They work quite well to keep her contained.  Until they don’t.



Our new storage bins come with a warning label on the inside that says “Warning: Suffocation Risk.”  Kaya was not interested in warnings.  Or maybe she just can’t read yet.

Baby Jenga

We’re new members of the NC Museum of Life and Science.  Tommy especially loved the block exhibit.  Kaya played Jenga with his meticulously constructed bridge – you don’t need this piece, do you Daddy?


It’s official…

Kaya’s a biped!  She now uses walking as her primary mode of transportation and only resorts to crawling for distances greater than one room away.  The best part about it is the HUGE smile on her face every time she walks.



The Rose Family (and all our stuff) has officially arrived in Durham. The move was seamless. A huge shootout to Pony Express moving on the Boston side and Trosa on the Durham side for taking such good care of our stuff. Thanks to everyone who helped us pack, ate dinner with us along the way, and brought us champagne when we arrived. Nothing like the fine dining experience of champagne and mac n cheese after a long day of unpacking.
