Sasha's 2nd Trip to Europe!
Lisa, Sasha + Sam went on vacation in Europe from October 26 through November 6th, visiting the capitals of Germany and the Czech Republic
From JFK, we flew to the Zurich airport for our connecting flight into Berlin. During our 4 hour layover, we went to the door marked "Nursery" expecting to find a little baby changing station. Instead, we found an area the size of a pre-school, with toys, changing tables, high chairs, cribs ... everything a family would need to pass hours in an airport. Sasha poses with a little swiss-air plane....

In the hotel room, Sam tries to stay awake near the end of his birthday. Also, the hand painted ceiling.
The Prague Zoo, which was devastated in the flood of August 2002.
Obligatory photo of Sasha sleeping on the plane ride home:
|As you can see from the photos, Sasha is now walking. He began at about 15 months, which some people say is "late" -- but it seemed just right for him! He's also saying some words: "hi," "hello," "mama," "baby," "dada," "belly" "g" (which means either dog or god or fun or play or just about anything else), "toos" (which means shoes), "noh" (which means nose), and animal noses such as "bah," "buck, buck, buck" and "mooooo." what a cutie!!!
