Ski!

Who said 3 is too young to get Alex on skis? Mark this day in your calendars, Alex sported her new skis (thanks Brooke!) and took them for a test drive on the driveway in Park City.

Merry Christmas to all...

We had a very white Christmas this year, in Park City, Utah with Honey and Papa (Fairbairn).  Santa visited our house and brought us lots of great presents, including these wonderful swings!





We'll get some more pictures posted up soon, so stay tuned!

Some holiday smiles

I've been failing miserably on blog posts lately, so if a picture is worth a 1000 words, here's a few weeks of posts:

say cheese

Alex, Sadie, and Reese do a never-before-seen group pose for the camera.

From 2007-12-01 Al...



We had a little pre-birthday party for Alex on Saturday, and she was all grins. Guess thats what a whole can of frosting will do to a 3 year old. More photos to come...

Eat your heart out Beethoven

For the Thanksgiving holiday, we spent the week in Park City, UT at Honey and Papa's new house. It was amazing, and we have a lot of great photos and stories to share. However, I was combing through the digital memories, and this one is priceless...

Mommy (to Gerry aka Papa): "Papa, come sit on the swing with us!"
Alex: "Yeah Papa, come swing with us."

(papa comes over to the swing and they start to make room)

Alex: "Your big 'ole booty will fit there..."

duty

I thought this was too funny not to mention. What cute pictures. I just hope when C & D drive by our house at 2 am they leave the sirens off as to not wake the kiddos ;-)

quotables

I have long been a fan of the Planet Lu blog, and its one of my favorite regular reads. Kate's witty style and perfect prose (Jason admits he does very little posting) make the musings of Lucy Elena really come alive, and as I read it riding into work every morning, it makes me smile.

Well, the post today finally prompted me into action. Kate often puts small quotes and phrases that Lucy Elena is heard saying, and they always make me laugh. We have often talked about jotting down some of the things Alex says, as they are hilarious, but have never taken the initiative. So here goes, Quotables installment #1:

(riding in the car in SF)

Mom: "Its stuffy in here"
Alex: "Mom, can you roll down the window to let the stuff out"

My Virgin Trip

Let me just start out by prefacing everything that I'm about to write with this - I'm a pushover for technology. I love playing with it, I love using it, and I am one of those that thinks the world is a better place because of it. (Luckily, I work at Google, so there's a good fit there.)

Wow, what a difference a week makes... oh yeah, and a change of airlines. You might have read my post last week bemoaning a flight on United from JFK back to SFO. In lieu of that experience, I decided to forgo the popular frequent flier miles on United, and give the new guy a try.

Now, I don't know if you can really call Virgin America the "new guy". Nor do I know if it is appropriate to consider it the young upstart, hungry for business. But everything about my experience would suggest that, like in so many other industries, the start-up trying to make it seems to be more motivated (and therefore much more customer friendly) than the entrenched mega-power (that's United for those of you following along at home.)

The flight attendants were very friendly, and genuinely seemed interested in making our flight an enjoyable experience. The in-seat entertainment system was very cool. I did get a kick out of the boot up it did in the beginning of the flight before we taxied out:




Not only is this cool little entertainment system (called 'Red') used for playing TV and movies, but you can also order your food and drinks right from the seat. I swiped my Amex, cued up a sandwich, chips, and my soda preference, and a few minutes later a flight attendant handed me what I had ordered. I also really liked the fact that they figured out how to transition passengers from the old system of systematically going down the aisle to the new in seat ordering. They did this by sending the crew down the line, but the drink cart was mounted with a wireless display and credit card system where they could in real-time get the orders and deliver them:





Being from Google, I liked their use of the concept of beta with their 'Red' system, as it did crash a few times, and every now and then was unresponsive. I also was disappointed in the direct tv feed, as it was spotty at best, to the point that on the return trip home, we only had 3 channels that were actually working.

In all fairness to the folks at United, it is easier to have this great customer experience with the technology enablement that Virgin has. The benefit of new planes and lack of legacy. Also, I initially didn't have anyone sitting next to me and was enjoying a window seat, however the gentleman in the aisle decided to have his girlfriend come join us in the middle seat about 30 minutes in, so although I wasn't in the middle, it was a little cramped.

But that all being said, I count this as one strike for United, one plus for Virgin. On my next transcontinental flight, I'll definitely be checking out Virgin America. By the way, did I mention the equivalent United flight was 3x the cost of the Virgin flight?

Bicycle races are coming your way

You may remember, way back when in 2005 we tried to get Alex on a bike.

Well, things are looking up. We found one her size last Christmas (thanks Grandma and Pipaw) and she now makes a near daily activity of riding in the back, or in the garage, or down the sidewalk.



And it looks like Reese might be getting into the action.

Fall fun

We've been having so much weekend fun that its hard to keep up on reporting the news here on the website. I'm basically failing at my goal of getting something new up at least every week. So given that, I'll just have to make sure when I do put something up, its worth while.

This weekend, we had the Halloween party at Alex's preschool, and last weekend we did another fall stable of hitting a pumpkin patch up in Nicasio. We had a great time, and since I'm not feeling very poetic (today, or any day) I figure pictures will tell the story.



This past week also Reese walking up a storm. And although our previous attempts at capturing that on film (with Alex as the photographer) were somewhat in vein, this time we got it! Check out the video:

The Joys of Business Travel

What does $1000 buy you these days? 200 of those little cocktails on the airplane. 140 fast food meals in the airport terminal (compared to upwards of 200 down the block outside the airport). 11 round trips in a taxi from JFK to Midtown. Just a little less than 2 nights stay in the Westin Times Square. And 27 breakfasts consisting of oatmeal, coffee and juice at the restaurant in the Westin.

But what it bought me was an uncomfortable, unpleasant, somewhat nerve taxing ride on United Airlines today from JFK to SFO. After finishing an exhilarating day keynoting at Interop, and doing my best to make my 2 and a half year old daughter the talk of the tech industry...


(sidebar: Steve Jobs, if you are listening, yes Alex is available to do iPhone commercials, just drop me an email)


...I was back on a plane to return home to see the three ladies of my life. I had the hope of achieving the mythical upgrade, however despite my 20,000 miles traveled this month on United and my 100,000 thus far this year, I didn't rank high enough to make the comfortable elite on this flight. That, in addition to the fact that their website, which when not returning cryptic "sorry, this feature is down right now" messages, seems to just throw up a waiting screen during the online upgrade request process and then return the user back to the main itinerary screen with no notice of success or error, had me sitting back in coach.

I filed onto the flight in the normal manner, stopping to notice that this was a "p.s." flight. United offers "Premium Service" (p.s.) on flights from JFK to SFO with a modified 757 configuration offering 3 classes of service, an increased number of business class seats, and all coach seats sporting the "Economy Plus" configuration of more leg room. Thank goodness for that, because as I wedged into my middle seat, I couldn't possibly imagine having LESS room, in the legs or otherwise. However, I can't say that I found anything premium about the service.

What transpired over the subsequent hours managed to get me, a self-declared travel veteran and generally calm person, extremely frustrated and generally grumpy. After insisting the plane was "on schedule" and forcing us all to board, we then pushed from the gate and sat on the tarmac for well over an hour, waiting for the customary congestion at JFK to allow a normal take off. In what seems like the cruelest of ironies, the flight attendant passed out newspapers (if you can still call USAToday a newspaper) with one cover story reporting on the latest clash between the airlines and the transit authority where? None-other than right here at JFK.

After the aforementioned wait, we finally took off and once airborne, the flight attendant read the customary greetings with a few additional pieces of information.

  • She informed us that we were not to get out of our seats unless absolutely necessary. Seems odd, and somewhat rude, given its a 6 hour flight.
  • She also notified us that while on this 6 hour flight, we would be served complimentary beverages no more than, and no less than 2 times, once at altitude and again one hour before landing. Am I the only one that thinks it somewhat skimpy to offer captive passengers 2 small glasses of water over what is now a 7 and a half hour period?
  • She goes on to inform us that cocktails and some high fat, low nutrition food will be available to buy, also for the price of $5 dollars. Now not to focus too much on the money, but given that my employer paid $1000 to move me from SFO to JFK and back again, doesn't it seem odd that during that 13 hours of air travel United could spring for something more than two small bags of pretzels? Especially on the Premium Service flight.
  • But I digress. She goes on to tell us that exact change is not only appreciated, but today is required. Again, I understand the appreciated bit. But hello, United, guess what. ATM's distribute $20 dollar bills last I checked. Your items are available for $5. Unless you really expect everyone on board to buy 4 items (which is difficult given you only give me two chances to buy anything, and give me very dirty looks when I request 2 of the afore mentioned beverages), why wouldn't you give your staff lots of fives and tens to make change?
The trip proceeded as one might expect. When they finally turned off the fasten seat belt sign, me and 20 of my fellow passengers got up to use the restroom. This angered the flight attendants greatly, to the point where they were rolling their eyes and actually asking us to sit back down. I did not comply to this request, as waiting on the tarmac for over an hour and then another 45 minutes to get to a point where they turned the seat belt sign off was too much given the large diet coke I had before the flight.

Anyway, I could go on and on. This flight was miserable, and much of that has to do with United the company, and United's employees. So, what should you take from all of this? United restored itself to profitability this quarter reporting strong numbers. However, in this, a service based economy (and a service based industry), I don't think they have a chance. I'm headed to DC next week on business... my airline of choice? Virgin America.

What do you get when you combine a lot of...


sunshine

With some very fast and loud...

airplanes - Blue Angels

...and also throw in a...


SF 49ers game

smiling faces (mommy taking the picture, she was smiling too)

If the picture doesn't sum it up, take a look at the video of Alex laughing and being so very excited about the Blue Angels flying overhead.

These boots are made for walkin'

Reese WALKED tonight for the first time. Both she and I were ecstatic. I felt a little bad about it because she took one step the first time, then SIX steps the second time… clearly she was not only ready to walk but she was probably ready last month had anyone challenged her a bit. The steps occurred in the kitchen but we took her into the living room for some filming and softer padding. Alex’s filming needs a little practice – but if you use your imagination you can pretend Reese is doing a lot of walking in these videos. (She probably took 20 steps total tonight – one of which kind of made it onto the clips.) I mean, Alex is no Spielberg, but for a 2.5 year old camera woman to create movies like these - maybe we’ll get a private jet in the family someday afterall. For some true artistic, indy-film genre stuff, check out the third video.

Reese Walked before this...


Reese walked after this...





Once she walked – at about 6:37pm if anyone is keeping tabs – she didn’t want to stop. She tried to walk in the tub. She tried to JUMP – wonder where she got that – and fell pretty hard. That’s when I remembered why I haven’t been pushing her to walk. She went from a maximum freefall of about 6 inches to something more like 26 inches.

After a week of (wait.. its only Tuesday) Reese being sick, preschool still not going right, etc… we had a fun evening of celebration!

Hawaii is for families!



Kauai – wild, tropical, honeymooners island… romantic… remote… WHATEVER… what we found out was that Kauai has GREAT kid beaches. I’m not kidding. They have normal, nice beaches with white sand and gorgeous water – that they divide in half. Half is normal, and in the other half they create a rock barrier (I’m sure there is a good technical term for it) that completely blocks the waves. The resulting “pool” is from 6 inches to 2 feet deep, depending on the tide - andhas no waves. The rocks make a nice snorkeling place for mom and dad. They even somehow got a huge, and I mean HUGE sea turtle – probably two and a half feet across his shell, and a HUGE monk seal to come visit in the little pool. (I did overhear someone say the sea turtle would be happy for some fresh human meat… we removed Alex and Reese from the water then.) These kid-friendly havens are called “park beaches” and there are at least 3 on Kauai… one was in walking distance from our condo. Most of the swimming pools also catered to little ones – with shallow ends less than one foot deep and slightly sloping water slides that any 12 year old would find boring but are the Ultimate for a 2.5 year old and her squealing 1 year old sister.

When they have fun, we have fun – so Kauai was fantastic. Now, whenever we are at the park in San Francisco, Alex jumps on the boat structure and we jump on with her and she steers the ship to Kauai. Warm water beaches, soft white sand, Grandma and Pipaw (who she believes own the condo we stayed in, for some reason)… here we COME! Thank you Grandma and Pipaw for making it such a wonderful, memorable vacation!

Glotzbach.com goes green

Not carbon neutral style green, but new color scheme green :-)

We're also experimenting with some changes on the server-side to make future changes easier, so please pardon the occasional technical glitch while we figure things out. And let us know if you like the new look. We will continue to refine as well as restore other functions like search on the site.

Thanks,

Moooo.

Reese must have read somewhere that once you hit the big O-N-E you need to start performing. In the last three days she's learned to moo (it sounds like a moo to me, but that may be a mom thing) when you ask about cows and "raaaahhhrrr" when you ask about tigers. She'd been saying "bye" and "ma ma" and "da da" but now she's trying to mimic words we say - or at least the first syllable, and her emphasis is on copying your pitch. Her latest is an exact replica of Alex's two and a half year old, "NNNNNNnnnnnnnnOOOOO!!!!" which I find annoying in the 2.5 year old. I certainly don't like my happy little one year old, crawling rapidly across the floor with a big smile on her face saying, "nnnnnnnnnnoooooo!" with Alex's nasty-toddler tone. Guess I'd better get used to that! Reese is standing now for seconds at a time - balancing as long as you don't remind her she's not holding anything. And I treasure this age in which her greatest joy is sharing something so that she can hear you exclaim "thank YOU!!!". She is most generous with food. If she runs out of food on her tray, she pulls something out of her mouth and offers it with delight. I am so proud of her generosity that more often than not I just eat it. The things parents will eat!



Reese's first birthday was last Saturday - and we tortured her with an 8 hour flight on Southwest to New Hampshire. Both girls did great. We had a fantastic time with Honey and Papa - most cherished was the time on the trampoline. Honey and Papa are on their way to a new home in Utah now - a big deal leaving friends and a house after 25 years in New Boston! The second weekend we spent at Uncle Robbie's wedding in Ogunquit, Maine. We're so excited to have Jaime join the family! The wedding was gorgeous - the location and weather was perfect - and we danced the day away during the reception. If size of smile is any indication, you can tell I was having a good time there with the girls.



Mobile Phone Blues...

This blog / site is usually all about happy things - family, friends, cute pictures of our girls, videos and the like. However, today I'm compelled to post something of a sadder, more frustrated note. As many of you know, I took the iPhone plunge. Not on day 1, but on day 2 mind you. I don't like to be bleeding edge, I think of myself as a fast follower ;-)

Well, not knowing if I would like it or if it would be a suitable replacement for my blackberry, I decided to keep my old cell phone number on my blackberry, and just get a new one with my iPhone. I was assured by multiple people, websites, and the AT&T folks that I could, at a later time, just port my old number over to my iPhone if I so choose.



You can probably guess what's coming... after a few hours on the phone with AT&T, and speaking to 5 or 6 different people, they now claim this is an impossible feat. In the grand scheme of things, this clearly isn't that big of a deal. Its not like anyone is dying. Oh, except for the last material tie I had to Austin, where I spent 7 great years, met most of my wonderful friends, and met my wife. But other than that, its just a phone number.

I'll be updating everyone via email and plaxo with the new number. No big surprise, it will be a 415 number. So, farewell Austin, its been a good ride. I'm a full fledged Californian now.

As an aside, most everyone at AT&T was very nice about the whole thing. In fact, the last woman I talked to apologized about 6 times for the fact that I had been through so much and that they couldn't do what I wanted. So AT&T, a few words of advice:
  • Educate all your support staff... especially the front-liners. If they hadn't told me I could do this in the first place, I wouldn't be all that upset.
  • Make the technology work. The mobile phone industry is a mess. Its ripe for someone to come in and just make it "work", and whomever does that (Google?) will indeed win. Users are getting more and more frustrated, and we all know users are always right.
  • Keep up the smiling service. The one thing thats keeping me from being really irate about this whole thing is the nice folks on the other end of the phone. The multiple levels of incompetence is a downer (see point #1) but the people were all very nice.

Caught the Theme Park Bug

At least I (Krista) did. As you can tell from the photos, I was possibly more excited than Alex about standing next to Sir Topham Hatt, riding on Thomas the Tank Engine, and riding on a large mechanical swing. She definitely loved the roller coaster more than me though. She's talking about it hourly.



Before I had kids, this is one of the things I was excited about. Being a little kid again. Being SO excited to go on a roller coaster that you thought you were going to burst. Believing that large, costumed character was REALLY HIM. And Matthew and I were that excited because as far as Alex was concerned, we were on the Island of Sodor.

We had an incredible time at Discovery Kingdom in Vallejo on Sunday - for you parents of 2-5 age kids its amazing how much they have that kids can do. The rides are made so that you go on with them if they are under x inches tall - its fantastic.

Fireworks Spectacular

4th of July on a Wednesday was definitely a new thing for me. I realize that sounds silly, because surely in the last 30 years, this has occurred at least 3 or 4 times before. However, its the first time I remember having a Wednesday off work. Initially, Krista was a little bit concerned that everyone else had "plans" and we didn't. However, she got over that by making us some plans... which were wonderful! We made a morning trek to Tennessee Valley and did the short 2 mile hike to the beach with the girls. Alex loved fetching water from the surf, and Reese continued her long and seemingly never ending quest to find the best tasting sand in the bay area.

Following the successful afternoon adventure, we braved the evening keeping Alex up for the 4th of July fireworks. Although this was against our better judgment, what were we to do? She had been talking about them for 2 weeks, so it didn't seem fair to deprive her of the experience. Daddy and Alex ventured out in the jogging stroller at 9:30, and enjoyed an awesome display over the bay. Nearing the finale, Alex turned to Daddy and said "Daddy, I'm sleeping now" to which Daddy replied, "do you want to go home then?" "No, after the fireworks are over please."

It was a great time, and one of the more memorable father-daughter moments thus far.

First day of School

Today was Alexandra's first day of "summer school", a series of 8 or 9 classes for the kiddos to get comfortable with their surroundings before they start the hard studies in the fall.





I found this poem, and wonder if its close to what is going through her little 2 year old mind...


The First Day of School

I wonder if my drawing will be as good as theirs
I wonder if they'll like me, or just be full of stares
I wonder if my teacher will look like mom or gram
And I wonder if my puppy will wonder where I am.

Birthdays, Mother's Day, Travel, and Smiles

We have been delinquent yet again... not posting anything to the site. Well, this time we have a very good excuse. We've just been having too much fun. Starting with a trip to SF by Grandma and Pipaw, where Krista and Matthew took way too much advantage of them and dumped the kids on them countless times. Funny, they didn't seem to mind. One of the really cool things, was Matthew and Grandma both got to celebrate their birthdays together, something that hasn't happened for a good 10-15 years.



We then trekked to Orange County for a visit to Grandma Lu and Pa's on Mother's Day. We were somewhat dreading the travel part, for all the normal reasons (fidgety Alex on the airplane, inability to sleep in foreign beds... you know, the usual reasons). However, much to our amazement and delight, it was wonderful! We had such a good time, the girls were angels, and Grandma Lu had such great food for us. We even got a surprise visit from Jason on Monday.

Enjoy the photos!

A cure for insomnia

Just in case you were having trouble sleeping, I figured I'd share the audio of a panel I was on at Web 2.0 a few weeks back.



They did post a short video clip as well, so you can get the mental picture of me squeezed between two other guys on a random blue couch on stage in Moscone West in front of a few thousand people. I've never liked the couch setup personally.

Happy snoring...

A Very Happy Easter!

We had so much fun spending Easter in Fort Wayne this year. Unfortunately, it was a cold one there, so we had to bundle up for the egg hunt.



We had such a great time celebrating Ron's retirement, and spending time with family and friends. Alex keeps asking to go to Indiana to see Grandma and Pipaw. Luckily, they are coming to see us!

Keystone Chaos

I've been so delinquent on putting in new photos, thoughts, and other musings online lately. No excuse, as usual. I just didn't do it. So here's a quick update. We've been having a great time over the past few weeks, as Alex continues to get more conversational, and Reese is laughing up a storm. Reese is just an amazingly smiley, happy baby. When not plagued by a cold or tummy issues, she is generally smiling and laughing. And when I get her giggling (by tickling her) its really cute.

This of course, is only true when both girls are sleeping well. Which was NOT the case on our recent trip to Keystone, Colorado. I won't go into all the details (because they might make you cry), but its safe to say that the average nighttime sleep per child was in the 4 hour range for about a week. But I'm getting ahead of myself... Keystone you say?



Correct! A few weeks back we spent the week with Lane (Krista's sister) and Eric Groce, Dona and Gerry Fairbairn, at Lane's condo in Keystone, CO. I (Matthew) was traveling for work, so I arrived on Thursday evening to the fun-house. The daylight hours were amazing, with perfect spring skiing and tons of food, fun, and family. However, the nighttime hours were a bit trying for all. The close quarters (2 bedroom, 8 people) made it such that when a little tike did wake up, that usually woke the other, and then additional adults were coerced out of slumber. All-in-all, we got the formula down by Friday night or so, separated Alex and Reese so one didn't wake the other, and generally made it through.

It was really a great time, and we had so much fun. A big, huge THANK YOU to Lane and Eric for spending their vacation with us, and allowing us to destroy their peace and property. We'll get more pictures and videos up soon... so check back!

Love that Cookie!

For Valentine's Day, Alex (and the rest of the family) got some yummy cookies from Honey. Here she is, saying thanks and enjoying the first bite.

Baby Update

Its been brought to my attention (you know who you are Ashley) that we here in the Glotzbach West household have been delinquent in posting the latest news, events, and photos to the site. For you, our loyal readers, I offer my sincere apologies. I'd like to blame it on work, but that is so cliche. So I guess I'll just have to blame it on all the fun we're having. We're so busy planning travel to Indiana, Boston, Hawaii, and numerous other things that we haven't gotten around to sharing the latest and greatest.

So first, there was dancing and swinging. Lots of dancing!



Alex's new favorite song (the old one was "Who Let the Dogs Out" by the Baha Men) is not "I like to move it, move it!" by Crazy Frog. If you've heard it, its most likely from the animated movie Madagascar.

Reese is getting bigger and really starting to develop a personality. Alex continues to show more interest in her little sister, and likes to help give her a bath.


From 2007-02-06 Re...


She also has really started helping around the house :-) We have gotten to see Uncle Doug and Daniel a few times recently, both involving wildlife. First we had a great trip to the zoo where Daniel showed Alex the lions, and Alex showed Daniel the Hippos. And just today, we headed down to Monterey where we met up with them at the famous Monterey Aquarium.

As an aside, Alex has informed me that I need to change the title of this post, as she is no longer a baby, but rather she is a "big kid". Sorry Alex, my bad. She is definitely bigger, as she started taking photos herself. Granted, many of them find her finger more than anything else, and she seems to get a lot of shots of everyones midsection. But some of them turned out pretty good. Take a look:



So all in all, we're really doing great. Other than the fact we won't get into any preschool for Alex. But Krista made me promise I won't write my thoughts on that process until we've either been accepted somewhere or rejected everywhere. Needless to say, I have lots of thoughts on this matter... for another time.

Mommy Loves Disco?

Every now and then (more often lately it would seem) I think to myself, "why didn't I think of that?" Well, yesterday was one of those days. Mommy, Daddy, Alex, Reese, Sadie and Marla (Green) attended our first "Baby Loves Disco" party in San Francisco.

Here's how it works. You buy tickets, way in advance because they regularly sell out, for $15 per person. Anyone who can walk must pay the admission fee. You then show up at a trendy San Francisco night club, in this case Ruby Skye, and boogie the afternoon away. The DJ mixes up clean dance tunes from the 70's and 80's. Kiddos enjoy the music, lights, bubble machines, and hula hoop heaven while the parents enjoy drinks and dancing.

And guess what, it was a BLAST. It was so much fun watching the kids dance and groove to the tunes. The DJ took his job very seriously, making sure we never were absent a beat. Check out the pictures. And if you have a nightclub somewhere in your area that has a lot of Saturday afternoon downtime, you might give it a try. Based on the sell-out crowds in SF, it seems a popular concept.

Getting a Jump on the New Year

We've been busy having lots of fun so far in 2007. Here is a collection of random pictures and video over the past week or so. Its been great to have some time at home with the girls. A highlight of this weekend was Sadie Jane's birthday party - bouncy house and all! Although, maybe the adults had more fun than the kids :-)
