Do you ever have so much to blog about that you put it off until you have a big chunk of time, and then by the time you have a big chunk of time you forget what all those things were that you were going to blog about?
I know I do.
But anyway . . . Simon experienced his first Christmas on Thursday. Santa Claus came with a big box of toys she found on Craigslist for $10. The little munchkin promptly wore himself out trying to chase the balls that got out of reach. He tried really hard to get them by throwing himself forward in a grand crawling attempt, but he has more luck getting around by rolling, rolling, rolling. That’s right folks, he can now roll from back to tummy and tummy to back (so talented), but he can only roll to the right, which has put him in a tight corner on more than one occasion.While Simon was celebrating Christmas (or maybe we should call it The Great Toy Acquisition of 2007) we were wondering what happened to Fall. We were under the impression that we moved away from Hawaii, but it appears the heat and humidity have followed us, or else somebody forgot to tell the weatherman that it is October. I did notice some leaves on the ground when I was out for a run this morning, but otherwise it is autumn in name only. And to think we moved from one end of the country to the other just so we could feel that crisp cool air again. What a waste.
Since we are on the topic of Fall, allow me to show you the lovely ad Micah designed that ran in New York magazine last month. I never thought he’d be published in a major magazine before me, but that’s the breaks. Really it just makes me long for cool weather all the more.
