The Chase

Hugo squares off against a basketball … and turns tail.

Hugo is quite a good walker these days but for some reason chose to crawl around my parents’ backyard.

Wow, has it really been over a month and half since we updated this blog? Shame on us!

Lots has been going on, of course, including a visit from our friends Mat, Claire and Leo, and Thanksgiving, with its myriad car rides and celebrations. Hugo attended another wedding, where he tore up the dance floor.


We’ve nixed the idea of a Christmas tree because neither Juan or I can imagine that Hugo will take more than a few minutes to fell it, so I’m trying to recreate the Joyeux Noel ambiance with strung lights and ornaments in the window.

Hugo is acquiring many new skills, including a bit of an toddler attitude that we are attempting to curb. More charming is this, the “shhhhhhhh……” that we’ve taught him to use when sneaking up on somebody.

All in all, Hugo is pretty cute these days. He is obsessed with the color yellow, loves puttin’ the crayons to the paper and rubbing his “baba” powder into his belly, and is generally blissfully ignorant of the current financial crisis.

If Hugo were to post a Christmas list, it would go something like this:

  • Yellow Things
  • All the Cell Phones in the World
  • Buttshakin’ Music
  • Frozen Mango
  • Plastic Water Bottles

As you can tell, Hugo is a man of diverse, if somewhat obscure,  interests.  We promise to do a better job of keeping you current!
