Ready for fun in the sun...

We're taking a little florida vacation next week. It's supposed to be a little rainy, but we're looking forward to it anyway.

Stephen turns his thesis in at 5pm today. Woo hoo!! He'll be graduating in a couple of weeks. I'm really proud of him and all his hard work. We'll be sticking around Boston for another couple of years at least.

¡Ay Chihuahuas!

¡Ay Chihuahuas! (This is an expresion that my spanish-speaking parents use on a regular basis. It always makes me laugh.)
And speaking of Chihuahuas: Sweetpea, didn't your dogs participate in a race like this?

10 years ago

In early June 1998, Jana and I took a trip to visit our friend Annie Kate in NYC where she was working on her Masters. It was my first and only trip to the city. Jana and I were exhausted, although excited, upon arriving in the city, because we had each just returned from Europe on different trips. I can't believe it was 10 years ago. So much has happened, so much has changed and why, oh why did I wear those overalls??

6 months!!

This past Sunday (mother's day!!) marked Sól's 6 months of happy air-breathin' life. I can't believe how quickly time has passed. The three of us spent Mother's Day sharing a cold, but we were together all day and that's what counts. :)

Sól has been sitting up on his own for about a month now. Last week he started pushing up onto his hands and knees! And just two days ago he really started babbling and trying to make more word-like sounds. We get a kick out of it b/c sometimes we think we hear him say "Hey!", "Yeah", and his new favorite "dadadada." Sól seems to love alliteration and we can always get a good laugh when we say, "Jalepeño pepperoni pizza." He thinks it's hilarious. He loves to swim and so far his favorite food is carrot. I love being a mom.

Stephen will be presenting his thesis on Monday and by next friday he'll be completely done with his graduate program!!! Right now we're all hangin' in there as Stephen is incredibly busy and I've been swamped with some unexpected photo work. We have sweet, wonderful friends that have stepped in to watch Sól when needed. At the end of May the three of us will be vacationing in the Florida Keys!!! We can't wait.

networking madness

i just joined facebook (for lots of reasons) and ask me what i've gotten done today. nothing. my house is a mess, my child needs a bath, but i'm connected. oh, man. i'm connected. craziness. you can reconnect with people you don't really even care to reconnect with...

anyway, i feel like i just got my first email address or something. i also have a profile on linkedin and i got a couple of photo gigs from it last year. nice.
