Henry and I spent the day with Sierra and Cara Lynn Deutsch. We went to the Children’s Museum of the Arts, had lunch, and played, and played…and played. Things can get a little wild when Henry and Sierra get together, but they always have a fun time despite the age difference.

Henry and I needed a change of scenery today so we traveled uptown to meet Sierra and Cara-Lynn in Central Park. After some fun in the park, we went to their apartment for some pizza. Henry and Sierra had a wild fun time together, as always.
We attended Sierra’s fourth birthday party on the Upper West Side today. Henry drank two juice boxes, danced, threw up, became a lava monster and got a little musical for Sierra.
Sierra came over to spend some time with Henry last night.
The first of Henry’s two birthday parties took place on Sunday. Since we are going away for his actual birthday (Thursday), we wanted to be able to celebrate with New York friends beforehand. Henry played with friends, played with toys and ate some cake (almost a whole piece on his own). What could be better for an almost one-year-old?

Mark, Henry and I went to another picnic in the Sheep Meadow in Central Park on Saturday. Aaron, Cara-Lynn, and Sierra Deutsch hosted. The weather has been reasonable compared to the heat wave of the previous week, so it was nice to be able to be outside and socialize.
Henry crawled away from the group and Sierra brought him a plate to play with.
