Our friend Matty B got us a Bumbo seat and we've had lots of fun with it.

Elliot has been hanging out in it while I eat breakfast. Onesie from Uncle Kevin.

Today, Elliot enjoyed some rice cereal. Ed tried to give him some on a couple other occasions, but this was the first time Elliot got excited about it.

Ed also gave him a haircut. I miss the crazy professor fluff on the right side, the Euro-mullet, and the Muppet tuft. But I have to admit the new look suits Elliot well.

Fashion show

I never thought I would care about baby clothes, but dressing Elliot up is way more fun than I thought it would be.

Nice piece of glass

I got a new (used) lens for our DSLR (we have an Olympus E-520 and the lens is a 14-54mm f/2.8-3.5) and got to try it out over the weekend. Here are some of the resulting photos. I love the lens!

Ed did a sprint triathlon at Hanscom AFB, where we swim. We found out less than 24 hours before that the swim team members were invited to participate.

Elliot and I spectated.

Later, we went to a Kentucky Derby party, a fundraiser for swim teammates of ours who are doing the Swim Around Key West in June. Ed got a seersucker sport coat for the occasion and we put together a costume for Elliot. Unfortunately we arrived after the "best dressed" contest was finished.

A couple of shots of Elliot on his playmat:

Birthday surprise

We participated in a surprise birthday for my MIL, Elliot's grandma, last weekend. It went really well. Relatives came from as far away as LA and Baltimore, and I got to see my MIL's cute new house. Elliot's the only baby in the family right now so he got lots of cuddles.
