23: We invited friends from UCLA Housing including your friends Dane and Kevin. Friends of Mommy and Daddy were there too and your Aunt Shubhi and Uncle Tim and cousins Meera, Kian and Priya. We sure had fun!
24: SPECIAL MEMORIES | This was your first trip to the beach. It was actually in Longport, NJ. Surprisingly, we never made it to the beach with you in L.A. You loved playing in the sand and swimming in the ocean. We' were all very happy to be there. It was a great day. | This picture was part of an impromptu photo session we took with you when you were almost 7 months. We were at Uncle Tim and Aunt Shubhi's and you had just woken up from your nap. You were dressed so cute for a Christmas party at their house. | This picture believe it or not was your headshot. You were signed with a top commercial agent in L.A. Unfortunately you got your first audition right before we moved to NY. I think it was for the best. Obviously, you are gorgeous.
25: This was taken during your first Christmas which we celebrated in L.A. with Grammy. Grammy got you those building blocks and she built you a tower which you were very excited about. You sure have a lot of fun with your Grammy. | This was just a gorgeous photo I took of you after getting you dressed for the day. It shows off your magnificent eyelashes. You're wearing a Gap sweater suit given to you by Grammy's friend Babs.
26: SPECIAL MEMORIES | When we lived in UCLA Housing, this Chinese grandmother took a huge liking to you. She tried to teach you Chinese and encouraged you to take your first steps. She really thought you were special. | This was your first meeting with Uncle Dan, one of Daddy's closest friends. You and him really hit it off and thus began the Boy Gang. See all his tattoos. | This picture shows you with your very first friend Dane MacGinnis. We were very sad to say goodbye to him when we left in July 2011.
27: This picture was taken at the Getty Center in Los Angeles. After Christmas we spent a wonderful day there taking in the views of the City. | I couldn't resist including this picture taken by your Aunt Katie down in Longport, NJ. Your future is so bright, you gotta wear shades.
