Thanksgiving

We had a great trip, spending Thanksgiving with Alison’s sister’s family.

Petra also tried rice cereal for the first time on Thanksgiving:

Petra and Iris met each other now that they are old enough to interact:

And what trip to New Haven is complete without a trip to IKEA?

Weekend o’ Family

Last weekend was wonderful to have both Matt’s parents and Alison’s sister’s family in town.

Denton G4 Summit

The six of us Denton cousins have been on a baby spree this year – six couples, five babies this year, seven all told, and one on the way! The great-grandchildren are the 4th generation, hence “G4″s. We all got together to introduce the babies and see my grandmother in the end of August.

Mind your Ps and Qs: Quintus is only 3 weeks younger than Petra; let’s see how they stack up

Fourth of July Babyfest

We took a day trip down to Newport for the holiday, to see the newest addition to the extended Denton family (Alison’s mom’s side). Hot on Petra’s heels came Quintus, son of cousin Tracey and Eelco. He was born 3 weeks early in the last week of June. We got to meet him and also see Gwyneth, Matt and Iris as well as the Alison’s Aunt and Uncle.
