Hey There Obama

In case you haven’t seen this one, here’s another great Obama video. Below that is “President Bush’s response.”

Girl Talk

I have a lot to say, but no time to say it. Here’s a link to an album I discovered on NPR today, Feed the Animals by Girl Talk. Mashups of old and new songs–60s/70s/80s hits mashed up with contemporary rap songs. Really good. And the best part is you pay what you want for it. $5. $10. Whatever you want. Click here to listen.

The scary family

Here are pix from the Piedmont Avenue Halloween Parade last Saturday. What a great event for kids (both little ones and big ones).

Shea on the Run

I’ll upload pictures soon, but today Shea and I played, “I’m gonna get you!” in French as I chased him and he crawled away in hysterics. And last night and tonight he ate most of his dinner with a spoon. The first try was a huge mess–applesauce EVERYwhere. But tonight his dinner was a little thicker, and I made sure he didn’t stick his free hand in the food–and he ate his whole bowl of potato-chicken-broccoli-pea mush with his spoon. So cute! He doesn’t know how to scoop, so he just sticks the spoon in the bowl and then sticks it in his mouth and sucks off whatever he gets on it.

A million things going on during the next couple of weeks. A housewarming party and Halloween parade this weekend. The Halloween, a wedding and a baby shower (at our house) the following weekend. Then my book is due the week after that. Then I get to CLIMB and do YOGA, two things I never do any more. Exercise has definitely taken a backseat this year. But it’s been worth it to spend time with Shea and to get my book done.

Will try to keep writing short updates here and there. And we’re working on getting videos up on YouTube. One of these days!

Sweet Dreams, by the way, has rented three weekends in a row, and we have three more bookings reserved. Yay!

Writing

Will blog after Nov. 5 when my book is done and Obama is our new president.

Watching Dexter and Heroes.

Took lots of pix of Shea last night, but need to upload them. He’s cruising a ton, but won’t be walking for another couple of months.

Bizy backson.

Mama!

Shea started saying “mama” this week, although he doesn’t know what it means yet. In fact, he mostly says it when he’s tired and frustrated and wants to be picked up (and not necessarily by me.) He doesn’t know what “dada” means either, though, and it’s been saying it for a couple of months.
