William: Eleven Months

It's true! William is a mere month away from the big One Year! As you can see from the picture, he's getting to be pretty big, and is almost entering the toddler stage. He has been standing on his own for up to ten or fifteen seconds at a time, and we are expecting his first steps any day.

More recently, he's been eating soft table food, cut up into small chunks, like spaghetti, and chicken, rice, and corn.

Next: William's one year post!

Six Years Of Blogging

We hope you have enjoyed reading the blog over the years and hope you will continue to visit us often in the future! Who knows what adventures await!

Little Scribes

We are very pleased to announce the upcoming launch of our new project, Little Scribes! The goal of this project is to create custom apps for toddlers and kids with high quality artwork, a ton of entertainment value, and a Biblical theme.

Our first app, due to launch in March 2011, is a flash card app that we are really excited about. The artwork is amazing, and the kids we've shown it to so far have been immediately interested and all smiles as they name each image. Our artist, Susanna Holdren, has been working hard on the artwork, and she deserves huge credit for making this come together.

We're just beginning our marketing campaign, and you can help! Please see the following links for more information and ways to keep in touch and spread the word.


We've set up a website at to showcase the project and provide information on upcoming and launched apps. If you've got a blog or website, please consider linking to us!


In addition to a website, we have created a Facebook page, located here: Little Scribes. This is probably the easiest way to stay in touch with us. Just visit the page, and click the "Like" button. It's also very easy to spread the word this way. Just click the "Share" link at the bottom of the left column!


No social media marketing campaign is complete without Twitter, and we're there too: @littlescribes. If you use Twitter, we welcome you to follow our tweets!

Charlotte's 4th Chess Lesson

So, the last few days, Charlotte has been asking repeatedly to "play a little bit Chess", so I pulled out the board yesterday and we reviewed the basics we've been practicing every few months.

Charlotte over the board!

She's pretty good with the names of the pieces now, although the Rook and Bishop often get mixed up. Since she's been asking more about it, we might start playing a little more often. She's nearly three, and as I understand it, in Russia, that's when they begin learning the game!
