The ladies getting down!
It was late, and some people just wanted to digest their food.
Fazal did his best to stay up late, and eventually, while staring at us in disbelief that we were not putting him in bed, he fell asleep in his father's arms.
I had learned, living in Spain for a few months during college, that much to my surprise, people there simply expected their children to stay up late if there was a late-night festival going on. I remember walking down the plaza and a couple of kids saying, "Mom I'm tired!" and she said, "Too bad, it's a night to party, you have to stay up!" I can't remember the name of it, but it was a night where people put up elaborate sculptures in the streets, and then burn them all down! My American friends and I were just laughing at how this could never happen in America because it would break every fire code known to man, but it was SO much fun!! That was a lesson to me that cultures have different ways to deal with their kids, too. Jafred is also taking a Sociology of Childhood course right now, and they discuss ethnopediatrics. A fascinating look at childraising in different cultures. And very relavant to our lives!

Final batch of recent photos...
Today I did a most extraordinary thing. One day shy of my 6-month birthday, I pulled myself up to standing position!!!!!!!!!!! Mom was totally shocked when she turned around and saw me do this. It was just that once, but many times more he pulled himself up onto his knees by holding onto the side of the car seat that was on the floor. Fazal REALLY wants to move!

+Can roll from his back to his belly and push up onto his hands and knees
+Slide himself backwards while lying on the floor
+Has two cute little teeth and chews on everything
+Wants to get a hold of things he shouldn't - if there are 5 toys in front of him and one book or pen or cell phone, you can guess which ones are interesting
+While sitting up, can bounce up and down in place, and while standing (wit help) can bend and straighten his knees
+Likes all new foods he tries, but they don't always stay down!
