now that i’m gone a bunch with photo jobs and such, we have a nanny around more often. she’s here on some of the days that i’m home, too, because there’s plenty of work to be done when i’m back from shooting. i definitely don’t have the multitasking skills to get my stuff done and [...]

to vaccinate or not to vaccinate

March 7th, 2009 · 1 Comment · Paige

parents in the u.s. stress about all the vaccines for their kids and the potential side effects and do i really need to give my kid all of this? i stress about whether or not my kid’s gotten enough vaccines. polio, pertussis, measles…diseases of a century ago in the u.s., but in [...]

milk, it does a growing body good

December 31st, 2008 · 5 Comments · Paige

odin’s exclusively breastfed. and i don’t mean that he only gets breastmilk (although he does). i mean, literally, he’s only fed from the breast. he’s 5 months old and has had two bottles in his life. i realize that at some point this will change, but for now i love it [...]

odin takes on ethiopia. or, adventures in responsible parenting

December 31st, 2008 · 5 Comments · Phil

traveling with a newborn (infant? toddler? whatever) requires some logistical adjustments to the routine. some we didn’t plan for but in retrospect were unsurprising (if you go sightseeing for an entire day without naps and quiet time, you will have to deal with a tiny nuclear bomb for an hour+ that night). some we did [...]

odin goes up country

December 4th, 2008 · 1 Comment · Paige

odin crossed the equator yesterday and we blew it by not photographing the momentous occasion. some people wait decades before they can say they’ve been at the equator; it took odin 4 months. goes to show how commonplace it is for us to go back and forth, north to south, that i didn’t [...]

odin goes to the movies

December 1st, 2008 · 1 Comment · Phil

we decided that if there were ever any place where it would be OK to take a newborn to a movie theater, that would be here in kampala. sure enough, no one looked sideways when we walked in. odin did well. though you never realize how loud your kiddo’s cute little gurgles and grunts are [...]

odin’s a cow

November 23rd, 2008 · 2 Comments · Paige

the major holiday season is here. of course in uganda, unless you invest in celebrating, that holiday season can completely pass you by since there are no seasonal changes to indicate the passing of fall and the onset of cold and snow and winter. halloween, the now harbinger of retail holiday chaos, doesn’t [...]
