2014 Year in Review

It’s that time again! 1. What did you do in 2014 that you’d never done before? I had a C-section.  I really wanted a natural birth, but for Ava’s safety and my own, it was necessary to have a C-section.  I’m not disappointed because both of us are healthy, which is the most important thing. […]

Merry Christmas II

The new house is a lot smaller than the old one so we didn’t put up a big tree this year.  Instead I picked up a lighted tree from Restoration Hardware.  Before adding the ornaments, I put Ava’s toys on the tree.  What do you think?   I am ridiculously sentimental when it comes to […]

Merry Christmas

Merry Christmas!  Jon and I picked out an outfit for Ava for Christmas.  She wasn’t too happy to wear it for long, though.  This was the happiest image that I got.

Ava says: “Put a bird on it!”   Independence/Motor Skills As you can see in the […]

New House II

The house is coming along.  I haven’t finished organizing the kitchen, but it’s good enough to be photographed.  Here’s the view of the large cabinets and the sink.  There’s a lot more space in this house and I’ve been able to bring out some of my old plates.  I love it.  I can arrange sushi […]

Happy Thanksgiving

Hello!  How was your Thanksgiving?  Since Thanksgiving is a time to give thanks, I’d like to give thanks to Ava.  She gives me such joy.   On Thanksgiving we went to a friend’s house who hosted a massive Thanksgiving for a group of people.  There were so many wonderful friends there, including one who hadn’t […]
