Photos from 20 July 01 - 19 August 01: Jonathan is talking in sentences. You can understand about 50% of it. Robert seems to have skipped sentences and gone straight to paragraphs. Jonathan keeps Robert up at night by screaming out "DA!". I guess he likes the company.

Photos from 20 August 01 - 19 September 01: In this month that saw America attacked and the World trade center destroyed, its hard to do anything other than thank God for the safety of our family and pray for the day those responsible are brought to justice. What gift would be more wonderful than a safe world for our children to grow up in?

New life. New York."
