Tuesday, April 15 The twins are 9 months old! This is hard for me to believe. The first few weeks of their lives went very slowly because we watched them every minute. But the last few months have flown by. They are now halfway through their period of dependency on their mother. In the next few months, their interest in solid foods will increase. A big change will come when they are about 13 months old. At that age, they will have their permanent teeth, and they will begin feeding on significant amounts of bamboo. They will still nurse but their dependency on Lun Lun’s milk will lessen until they are ready for weaning at 18 months of age. That means they are halfway through their time as cubs. After they are weaned from Lun Lun, they will be referred to as subadults until they are reproductively mature. That will occur at 3.5 to 4.5 years of age. We still have plenty of time to enjoy watching the twins with Lun Lun, but I’m sure the time will pass quickly.

Irish flavored, Live acoustic guitar instrumental. Originally released on his Beyond Nature studio album.
This performance even blows away the studio release. Around 4:00 he really starts cooking, playing multiple double note guitar runs at the same time, then does his double-capo thing. Truly in a class of his own!
