Sonya's first sleep in her big "real" bed



Sleeping on the edge ...
which of course led to falling off, and ...



The new bed rail

Time for a real haircut for Sonya.

Hugo recently took up Goju-Ryu.

Compare this to
the 1987 Bok Fu picture.

Amber brought her new kitten Mozzy to work.



Dispite the railing, Sonya finds her way to the edge.

On May 30th, which is also Swedish mother's day, Sonya got a new cousin, Erik Bomqvist-Tamberi.

These pictures, taken a few days later, are of him being held by his father, also Helena's brother, Mats.

Sonya draws.


 
Sonya tries out her new bathing suit.



Bean bags!



With giant bean bags and TVs and "baby einstein" DVDs tailored to Sonya's needs and interests, TV watching is a bit different from when I was a kid.

Beautiful clouds at sunset.


Sonya likes hot mustard more than mayo.

(She also likes strong mints and hot cinnamon!)


Sonya eats ice cream after breakfast (she was a good girl, and it was Sunday!).

Here also is our wheelbarrow, which I was painting blue just to protect from rust. Our neighbor Richard said it needed yellow so it would be a Swedish one, so I obliged (just Saturday).



Slated for me on Sunday was to put up the slide and swing set our friend Carol donated to us when Sonya was just a month old.


Helena got up and informed me it was the Swedish national holiday today, so up went the Swedish flag too. Notice how blue and yellow everything turned out to be with varying degrees of coincidence.



Sonya took a break in the shade and looked through a book.



 

Sonya helped mom out with washing her car by filling the bucket and making more bubbles!



Our neighbor Kristie and boyfriend Richard were also out with their projects all day.



With just a bit of sunburn and soreness, the set came together before too long.



With only a little coaxing, Sonya zipped up the climbing board and down the slide over and over, pausing only occasionally to swing back and forth for ten seconds or so.
