A Date Without Christopher

Since I was a part of Jared's Wedding, this was the first date that Lina and I have had since Christopher was born. Lina felt it was really hard to leave him behind, even though he was with Grandma Judy, and in good hands, it was a totally different feeling going out without him. But we had a really good time at the wedding and knew that the baby would be ok.

God Answers All Prayers...........

I wanted to share these photos of the wedding for my Best Friend, my brother Jared and his new wife Illeana. They were married today at the Swan Club, on Long Island. God has blessed me with Jared's friendship for over 15 years, and now we can both say that God has also blessed us with beautiful wives. I thank God each day for Jared's friendship, and for also answering his prayers to find his perfect mate. Here are a few pictures of their special day.

Baby's First Trip to Central Park

I know, Christopher will have a lot of "FIRSTS", but as his daddy, I have to chronicle every one of them, it is just my duty as a father. Man, this never gets boring.

We took Christopher to Central Park on Saturday April 15. The weather was great and the time there was priceless.

Christopher Visits Build-a-Bear

Lina and Christopher met me at work yesterday and we spent the rest of the day at Build-A-Bear and walking around the city with Lina's aunt, Nena, her kids Steven and Stacey, and our niece Naomi. Here are a few pictures of our adventure.

Christopher's 1st Easter

On Sunday April 16, 2006, Christopher went with Mommy and Daddy to church and us three celebrated our first Easter together. He looked so cute in his little outfit.

Grandma and Grandpa Celebrate 60 Years Together

On Saturday April 15, 2006, we celebrated Grandma and Grandpa's 60th Wedding Anniversary. Grandma and Grandpa have seven daughters (yes all girls!!!, one, may she RIP.), have ten grand kids, two great grand children and the support staff, (meaning all family members married into the family).

A few of the family turned out to celebrate with them, which they thought was a pre-Easter dinner. Here are a few pictures from that great day.

Christopher Having Fun

Well, as you can see, Christopher is starting to do so much now, that I feel as if I have to update my Blog every other minute. But don't get me wrong, I am loving every minute of it. Here is Christopher enjoying sometime in his ExerSaucer. Yeah I know, weird name, but whatever it is called, he loves it.

Christopher Finds His Thumb

It does not matter which thumb it is, Christopher has moved from sucking on his hand and all his fingers to finally settling for his thumb. Lina actually says that he prefers his left thumb more than his right. Go figure!!!

"Oh Man, Mommy Caught Me"

"Oh Well, This Tastes Too Good To Stop"

Christopher Eats Cereal

If you know Lina and I by now, you will know that everything new that Christopher does, we either take digital pictures and add them to this blog, or we video record it. All in all, when he gets older, we will probably embarrass him, but it will be all worth it. He is our baby and we want to cherish every moment with him, every new thing that he does. So hope you continue to enjoy with us all the things that make Christopher as unique as he is.
