Heartbreaker!

Sorry I've been bad about blogging. Life is just so wonderfully busy with lil' Isabelle, it's hard to pull myself away.

Even more photos on Flickr of this incredible angel! She is rolling, scooting, found her feet, realized she can close her mouth, uses both hands amazingly well to grab anything - like mommy's hair!, and in general is the light of our lives..

P.S. The cutie she's holding hands with in the previous post is Brooke's baby. Born on the 4th of July.. that rascal is going to think for years that all those fireworks are for his birthday!

Quick Note

We are getting ready for Gymboree so I only have a moment. We had a fabulous albeit chaotic weekend up in Washington :o) I have many pics and stories to post..hopefully later today or tomorrow.

Best thing, Isabelle now knows how to blow raspberries. She'll do it in response to yours and on her own. She has the most pride in creating them ;P Gotta love this baby gal..

Thank you Obama!

"Change is building an economy that rewards not just wealth, but the work and workers who created it. It's understanding that the struggles facing working families can't be solved by spending billions of dollars on more tax breaks for big corporations and wealthy CEOs, but by giving a the middle-class a tax break, and investing in our crumbling infrastructure, and transforming how we use energy, and improving our schools, and renewing our commitment to science and innovation. It's understanding that fiscal responsibility and shared prosperity can go hand-in-hand.... America, this is our moment. This is our time. Our time to turn the page on the policies of the past. Our time to bring new energy and new ideas to the challenges we face. Our time to offer a new direction for the country we love. The journey will be difficult. The road will be long. I face this challenge with profound humility, and knowledge of my own limitations. But I also face it with limitless faith in the capacity of the American people. Because if we are willing to work for it, and fight for it, and believe in it, then I am absolutely certain that generations from now, we will be able to look back and tell our children that this was the moment when we began to provide care for the sick and good jobs to the jobless; this was the moment when the rise of the oceans began to slow and our planet began to heal; this was the moment when we ended a war and secured our nation and restored our image as the last, best hope on Earth. This was the moment – this was the time – when we came together to remake this great nation so that it may always reflect our very best selves, and our highest ideals."
