Camera Curious

Family members who’ve visited this site have mentioned how much they enjoy seeing videos of Henry and we’ll try to post more. One of the challenges of getting good photos in general and video in particular is catching him unaware. As these photos show, sometimes the closer the camera gets, the less expressive he becomes. He’s not exactly camera shy, more like camera curious. Like when he notices the camera, he wants to know the aperture setting and shutter speed.

Henry’s Rug

Henry’s main gift was delivered yesterday— it’s a colorful striped rug for his room. We figure he’ll spend a lot of time on the floor during the next stage of his development when he starts crawling. It also really ties the room together.

1WTC Under Construction

Last night Henry and I stayed home while Jacqui attended her office Christmas party. When she returned, she said the cab had to drop her off a few blocks away because a lot of the streets in our neighborhood were closed.

The reason for the street closings became clear soon after when we saw the massive base segment of the spire of One World Trade Center being hauled down Greenwich Street toward the site.

Today Henry and I went to investigate the remaining, slightly smaller segments on a barge docked in the Hudson.
