How my kid got dirty.

SAN FRANCISCO, CA - JULY 4:  The July 4th cele...Image by Getty Images via @daylifeMy kid got dirty on the 4th of July. But the good kind of dirty. The kind of dirty that comes from rolling around the ground or sliding down a dirt hill. He slid down a dirt hill.

We decided to go camping on the 4th of July and we did so with some long time friends who travelled from San Francisco and Los Angeles. We met in the middle at a campsite called Camp Wishon

Halloween 2007

Goblins, Ghouls and Ghosts oh my!

Happy Halloween! We are planning on heading out to Fair Oaks Street in Noe Valley to check out how the children do halloween in San Francisco. In previous years as no kid Adults we've done Castro Street and parties. This year offically marks a whole new tradition when we get to dress up our baby. Of course, I hear we need to relish in picking the cute costumes since once they're old enough to have strong opinions, we won't get a say. This year we chose a Lion. The costume is a little big, but he's so cute in it.

I will post pictures soon. Until then, be safe out there.

It's been awhile..

It's been 9 months since we've updated. We've been busy raising our little genius. But I am vowing to start updating more often so friends and family can enjoy the many musings of the Lien's life.

Maddox is getting bigger and more adventurous by the day. He's cruising around the coffee table, scooting along the floor and basically getting into everything. Child-proofing is about 20% done. We have hooks on cabinets, but that's about it. We're living on the edge!

We are changing childcare again. We tried to keep our current Nanny, but it didn't work out so we are moving to a daycare next week. It's a home daycare with 3 other little tikes. Maddox will have a blast.

Halloween is in a couple days and Maddox is ready. He even has 4 teeth to chomp on candy! Kidding. It's pureed squash and oatmeal for him. Reeses Peanut Butter Cups for me!

Keep checking back as I update with more photos and more Maddox! PS, the above pic is about 1 month old. I will upload more recent ones tomorrow.

The Red Sox are Champs

As I was busy proposing to my wife in South Africa in October of 2004, I'm happy to report that yesterday the Red Sox won the world series for the second time in three years. This time around was much more rewarding than being forced to read about it over a dial up connection in a country where no one cares or even knows what I'm talking about.

New Daddy

Well today is the fifth day of fatherhood. I still can't believe that I'm a father and Kerry and I are still learning as we go. We're feeling a little overwhelmed but practice makes perfect and two weeks from now we'll probably look back on this week and wonder how we ever managed to figure things out.

We've gotten some great responses to our email announcement and it's good to know that while many friends and family are so far away that we have an incredible amount of support from every one of them.

Maddox is born!

Maddox McNeil Sheng Jie Lien was born on 1/24/2007. He weighed 9 pounds and 3.7 ounces, was 21v inches long and had a full head of hair when he came out.
Here are the pictures of Maddox at birth. This includes a short video of Maddox asleep and making weird sounds.
