Another in our continued series of videos that are sure to embarrass Nyan when he’s older (sorry, kid): the boy in a bath. Not a whole lot going on here, I suppose, just Nyan admiring himself in the mirror, and making little noises, and vamping for the camera. As he does.

The Things He Does
A few random snippets of life with Nyan in recent days, with a couple of photos for good measure.
Today’s Video: Tub
Bathtime is supposed to be a time of winding down, and relaxing and getting ready for sleep. Not tonight though, as you can see in this video. Young Nyan Thomas was full of beans (as he is pretty much all the time lately), splishin’ and a-splashin’ and, most notably, admiring himself in his reflection in the chrome thingie that you turn to make the tub stopper go down. He certainly is a joyous handful…
Nyan Thomas at Play (three videos)
Ever wonder know what goes on in that two-hour or so window between when Nyan gets home from ‘school’ (i.e. nursery, a.k.a. day care)? Of course you do. Well, here you go. A trio of videos showing the young man in all his playtime glory.
First up, check him as he bounces from toy to toy, then demands that Daddy open his toy chest, then goes through that toy chest, looking for the perfect toy:
In this video, more toy chest action. Note that if he doesn’t want a toy, he definitely doesn’t want a toy.
And here’s still more playtime: riding his little ladybug scooter, chatting, still seeking that elusive perfect toy. And don’t miss the bit near the end when he finds his telephone… priceless:
Haircut! (with pictures and videos)
Last Sunday was a big day for young Nyan Thomas. Most importantly of course was his first real baby steps, which you read about in this post. But Sunday was also the day of his first real haircut! He’d gotten haircuts before: once back in December as a medical procedure, essentially – we shaved his head as a way to make his cradle cap medicine more effective (it worked like a charm, too) – and just a few weeks ago we gave him a quick trim over the bathroom sink because some of his hair was growing over his ears and bothering him.
But Sunday was the real deal, at a real barber shop. Read the rest of this entry »
BREAKING NEWS: Baby Steps! (with video!)
Yes, it’s true: our boy took his first official baby steps today! And we captured it on video!
Apologies for the multiple exclamation points. But this is kinda a big deal. Here’s what happened: Read the rest of this entry »
Today’s video: New Toy!
Daddy returned from Zurich with some Swiss chocolate for Mommy and a new toy for Nyan! It’s this simple wooden thing with three blocks – triangle, circle and square – that you put into slots in the wood box, and then you press down on a lever within the box so the blocks can slide out. It’s simple and fun – and here’s our boy playing with it. He doesn’t yet have it entirely figured out, but check out the intensity with which he examines the box, and his various creative methods of getting the blocks out of it…
Breaking News: Standing
Our boy doesn’t yet walk on his own – not yet – though he’s gotten quite good at walking around with one- or two-handed help. So he’s close. We’re not concerned, really. But still, he’s nearly 16 months; it’s time to walk soon, pal.
Tonight, he took another step (get it?) toward walking: Read the rest of this entry »
Today’s Video: Yogurt! Plus, a Story or Two.
We write you today from the charming Swiss city of Zurich, where Daddy is working for a couple of days. There’s a story to tell about that – but first, here’s a video from the other day, in which our hero insists that he can handle his pot of yogurt himself, thank you very much. He’s got the concept down – stick the spoon in the pot, get some yogurt on it, put spoon in mouth, repeat – but the execution is not quite there just yet. But he’s learning, and you gotta love his determination. Check out the video:
