Charley's Second Dodger Game

Charley with Molly.
Confident in another win.
Lookin' sharp.

Down on the Field

They let kids onto the field after the game to run the basepaths. We used six-month old Charley to get our kid (Jamie) onto the field.
Passing the visitors' bullpen.
Warning track.
Visitors' dugout.
Dodgers Win! Charley is now 2 for 2 lifetime.

Running the Basepaths

Little kids running the basepaths.
Jamie and Charley going towards first!
Jamie and Charley rounding third! (we were passed by many, many children).
Heading for home! Unfortunately you could not see Charley's face-first slide (to protect the vials of cocaine in his back pockets, of course
Looking pretty winded. In my defense I did work out on the Culver City High School track that morning.

Charley Tries Carrots for the First Time

Charley on His Hands and Knees

At the Walker House

With Jenny:


Charley and Granddaddy

Reading to Charley:

Watching Redskins' preseason game:

Swim Class IV - Crossing the Floating Bridge

Charley will eventually crawl across ...
For now he must be carried along by Igor.
Come to Papa!
Rubber ducky is his reward.

Swim Class III

Gliding through the water.
"You put right hand in, and you splash it all about!"
"You put your whole body in, and ..."
"Humpty Dumpty sat on the wall!"

Swim Class II - Back Floatin'

"Don't you dare let go, dad!"

Getting used to floating without Jamie's hand beneath him.

Not sure why we go under the foam bridge.

Swim Class I

Charley modeling his Lenny Krayzelburg Swim Academy wetsuit.
He has some room to grow...
Igor, the instructor, with his plastic baby.

Some fatherly reassurance after going face down.

Only Charley can find the camera!

Jamie's co-worker's daughter, Zoe with her big brother, Milo, and Vigo (both of whom seem more interested in Myles (in background)
Party animal or just teething?

Sleeping with All His Friends

Visiting Buelton, CA's (Locally) World Famous Pea Soup Andersen's

Jamie contemplated asking someone to take a picture while he held up Vigo's head in the other hole, but no stranger should be put through that dog and pony show...
