Alice Rebecca Lafler-Austern was born on December 18, 2005. Here are some (now rather old!) pictures from her first four years.
Alice is an active and verbal little girl. She loves books, natural history, climbing, getting wet, and typical toddler foods such as roasted garlic, broccoli, olives, and edamame. Alice goes to Google preschool and comes home with all sorts of lurid gossip about her classmates. Recent accomplishments include getting dressed all by herself, swimming lessons at the JCC, convincing Daddy to take her to the Monterey Bay Aquarium, and asking unanswerable questions. Favorite word: “Why.” She may be the only toddler in existence who happily eats all her vegetables and leaves the starch on the plate.
Some of Alice's recent linguistic developments and witticisms are chronicled here.
