Newport Beach

A couple weeks ago, HG, KG and I spent the weekend at a time-share in Newport Beach that her dad and Debbie had arranged. In addition to the five of us, KG's brother Bob and his daughter Ana were also there. A nice time was had by all.

Check out this awesome family photo (look how sly HG looks):

Perfunctory Update

Okay, the rash is gone. It was an allergy to an anti-biotic.

This whole rash thing just sucked. Seeing him with it for so long, even when we knew it wasn't bothering him very much, even when it was fading and we were relatively certain it'd be completely gone soon, totally sucked. May none of you have children with rashes.

The Rash


Just to keep everyone up to date, HG has been suffering from some kind of mystery rash for a couple of weeks now. We finally got him to the allergist the other day and they gave him something that's keeping the symptoms at bay. The Dr. believes the rash was a reaction to some antibiotics HG was taking for an ear infection.

The above picture, as bad as it looks, doesn't do the thing the least bit of justice. For a while Henry's whole body was covered in raised welts. I can't tell you how hard it is as a parent to observe something like that and not be able to do anything to make your child feel better.

Of course HG's been a trooper as usual, even when it got so itchy that he was scratching himself like an addict kicking dope. Hopefully the worst is over. The Dr. told us that if it's what he thinks it is, it should go away within a couple of weeks or so. Keep your fingers crossed.

Sleeping On The Floor

We're trying out a new naptime wrinkle these days - putting HG to sleep on the floor. When he falls asleep in your arms, it's easier to move him there than to the crib. Plus, it's cute as hell.

Saying Goodbye

Well it's Sunday the 6th and later today I'll do my final two performances of Noises Off. Lots to say goodbye to, lots to do. Tomorrow night I head home to resume my non-actor life.

Throughout the bulk of the summer, I've been housed in an apartment over the home of Sue - an acting student of mine - and her husband Jim. Sue and Jim have been awfully kind to our family and I couldn't be more grateful. We'll definitely miss the both of them as well as the place itself (not to mention Katie, the best natured dog I've ever met).

Roar Of The Crowd

Moments ago, with HG asleep on my shoulder and music playing in the background, the most charming thing happened.

I had my iTunes set to play randomly and as the music turned over to the next song, a live Tom Waits tune came on. It began the way live tracks often do, with a burst of loud, appreciative applause. HG, who the moment before had been absolutely dead asleep, suddenly jerked his head off my shoulder and, somehow looking simultaneously determined and confused, applauded briefly before once again flopping his head on my shoulder in a complete stupor.

It was over in a fraction of a second. Afterward, I found myself sitting there shaking my head. I took the above photo seconds later.

On A Side Note

For those of you interested, I've just launched another -completely different - blog. By way of explanation:

For the last 20 years or so, I've kept sketchbooks for drawing. For the most part I never really showed them to anyone, but recently I decided to go public. Below is the link. There are currently about 35 of my drawings posted.

You can see the rest of them at...

Siesta!

This afternoon I tried to transfer a sleeping HG (he'd fallen asleep on my shoulder) to his crib and I just couldn't manage to do it without waking him up. He obviously needed a nap, so I simply plopped down in the Lazy Boy and took a nap with him. Two hours later I woke up feeling fantastic. Somewhere in there KG snapped a pic of the two of us in all our rumpled glory:

Sandy, Joe, Abigail and Kayla in San Diego

KG's got more family in town, this time on her mom's side. Sandra's been visiting along with Joe and Joe's daughter Abigail and granddaughter Kayla. KG took everyone to La Jolla today and snapped a few pics along the way.

HG has recently grown averse to hat wearing, so here KG has
fairly marinated his little head in sun block.

Asleep In The Car Seat

Such a sweet little guy, he fell asleep on the way to the wild animal park. I love the glassy eyes and lone visible tooth in the 2nd photo.

Day At The Beach

KG convinced me to go to the beach today with her and the pup. Though I was tired and a bit of a slug, it certainly was a gorgeous day.

Henry's New Friend

Here's a photo of our SD babysitter Jen, also an ASM for the show I'm currently performing in. HG loves her.

Oh No!

Typical Summer Day In San Diego

A couple days ago, KG accidentally deleted a bunch of the photos she'd taken over the course of our summer vacation (poor thing, she was soooo bummed). Yesterday, she began anew:

Long Time No Read

Long story short, I've been working in San Diego recently, sans the baby. Before that, I was too busy or tired or lazy or whatever to blog. Anyway, I came home over the weekend and wanted to share a photo of me and the pup. As you can see, we were kind of happy to see each other.
