Hey guys, I am nine months old. Singing to life and its beauty ... Canto a la vida y su belleza ... Mikhanam baraye zendegi va zibayi hayash ....

Art Institute Museum, Chicago.

We went to the Art Museum for a whole day and I looked at a lot of artistic works. My parents explained, or tried to explain, some of the pieces to me. And I had a good lunch in the museum cafe. Chicago is a windy city, so I was happy to be indoors anyway.

Ilia goes to Chicago

I am becoming a true traveler. This time, I was off to Chicago. You can see me surrounded by three lovely ladies. They are my mom and two of her high school friends. They go a long way back, and they showered me with attention and love. It was fun.
I think the balloons were there to celebrate my arrival, or something like that. It was also the Persian New Year, and we had Sabzi-polo Mahi. Golnaz made it. Shakila gave me a green dragon, like the one walking on Cornell campus, and Golnaz gave a cute outfit as Eydi.
Eyde hamegi mobarak!

Dragon at Cornell

There was big green dragon walking across Cornell campus. It was a friendly dragon and people were walking around it. I wanted to ride on it, but they didn't let me. It was funny, because this was a dragon that needed police protection. How lame can you be?

Blog maintenance

I can tell you that maintaining this blog has been a lot harder than I had imagined, especially with the busy schedule of a baby like me. I don't mind writing about myself or including photos to back up my stories, but what takes the largest toll on my time is the proofreading. I am a baby after all and not so good in spelling. Anyway, the blog was delayed for a while and I had to back-date to keep everything in good shape. From now on, I will do my best to be more with you. Keep up with me!

Ilia and the art of blowing bubbles

It all started in our local coffee shop one Thursday afternoon. My mom introduced me to the fine art of "blowing bubbles", and I have mastered it ever since. I love to blow bubbles into any type of liquid: water, juice, milk...I have even tried blowing bubbles into a spoonful of cereal, and loved the result! (though my mom regretted having thought me to do so in the first place, but that is her problem, isn't it?)
Would you like me to teach you?

Dad's office

I am in my dad's office. It is a crowded one. Lucy is greeting me, and I am checking the place out. I am trying to figure out what are the fun spots to go for once I can freely move around in my dad's office.

Told you so!

I had told you that I stare at TVs. Here I am in a Target store, trying to get as much TV as I can. It was a music vidoe, but I don't care. It was only a few moments before we moved on to check the PDAs. My dad is looking for a good Palm. Any suggestions?
