Look, over there!

L.I.A.'s eyes work.

Sorry for the delay. We are still getting used to the phenomenon that is the Malloy kidS, plural. I need a camera in my forehead.  Then you would truly appreciate the brother-sister love that we witness daily.

Conversations with Max and L.I.A.

the backseat, past L.I.A.'s lunchtime


MAX: It's okay, L.I.A., it's okay


MAX: I know, sweetheart, I know...

hello world!

and Happy Birthday, Grandpa and Grandmother!

Here is our young heroine doing what she does best. Being a baby is hard work!

Max would like to announce the arrival of his beautiful sister L.I.A. Usafi, born at home yesterday at 3:01 PM.

L.I.A. ("LEE-ya") stands for Love in Action, and Usafi ("oo-SAH-fee") is Swahili for "purity".

Max is already an ecstatic and extraordinarily caring big brother. More adventures to come!

Who's the best tressed preschooler in Nashville? Thanks to Vava, (the babysitter's  daughter and Max's number one ace),  there is no question.

nothing runs like a Deere

And nothing could make Max happier than exploring a life-sized version of one of his favorite toys.
