Sometimes you try

Saturday was a long day. There was a 5AM start, a flight to Thailand, four doctors appointments, three immunizations, two X-rays and a cast removal. We’d known it would be a hard day, so Mike and I had planned a special treat for after it was all over – we booked into a nice hotel with a pool and took Dominic for his first swim.

The result? Well, let’s just say the photos belong in Mike’s “Sometimes You Try” facebook album.

Me: “Dominic, guess what, we’re going swimming. Swimming is fun!”
Dominic: “You also said the needles would only hurt a little bit. I totally don’t trust you on this one.”

Family kodak moment fail. Here are a couple of other photos that belong in that “Sometimes You Try” album:

“Just for the record, totally not enjoying this sightseeing trip up Phousi Hill.”

“You want to know what my wish is for when we release the birds? I’ll give you one guess and a hint – it has to do with going home.”

“Are you two kissing me again? Do you have no concept of personal space at all?”

“Grandparents? Boring.”

“I love me some Zulu.”

“And Zulu loves himself some baby spew.”

Mike: “Dominic! Smile for the camera!”
Dominic: “I don’t know who these two are, never seen them before in my life.”

Finally, a bonus “sometimes you try” video: Dominic’s introduction to vegetables (and don’t worry, despite all appearances to the contrary at the end of this clip, Dominic was not seriously choking).

  1. Dominic is such a beautiful child!! I love these pictures!

  2. I love the one of you holding him at the pool. That is solid gold.

  3. How funny! We only have a few gems out of the thousands of snapshots of the twins. How is Dominic’s leg now? All healed I hope.

    • Yes and no. Initial healing going well, the cast is off. But the doctors recommend follow up every six months and we’re not sure about long term complications. I’ll write more about this within the week.

  4. I was laughing pretty hard at that video….

  5. I love these photos! In fact, I love the “keeping it real” photos from my kids’ younger days as much, if not more, than the cute, posed, perfect ones.
