A Spring Day

We had such a wonderful day today. After some Danish pancakes at the St. Paul farmer's market (some vendors have been braving the cold the whole winter not just now)...we headed to the Arboretum and went for a walk and lunch. I think we are going to have Shea's birthday picnic there as well this Wednesday (it was that great:)

And to think Einstein was a baby once, too

Letting Siena feed herself always sounds like a great idea...until clean-up time.

Avid Reader/Book Eater

Most of Siena's books get eaten in the first few days...so the foam ones fare much better.

My daugther-- the exiled Wookiee

Siena attacking the camera and making Wookiee sounds---we still think the Kashyyykians are coming for her. I did actually have to look that up (in my defense).

Love of a Sock Monkey

Siena and her favorite sock monkey (or so her mommy thinks since she made it). And sporting a picture of mommy's secret lover- Stephen T. Colbert.
I wonder if this would come up when people google sock monkeys and Stephen Colbert (I only ask because I know there are thousands of people out there googling exactly that:)

Siena is 8 months today

Sometimes I decide to simply refuse to accept how fast it is all going...and then Siena says "dada" or stands up on her own...and I can't refuse. She has been 8 months of fun, a few tears, many laughs, and quite a few diapers. Last year at this time we were in Italy and that is where we felt her kick for the first time. To think that only a year ago she had no face and no name. I remember that then, when the kicks started, while I did feel some kind of closeness with her...it was just a fleeting moment. And to think that now I have a hard time remembering that there was a time before her...that there was a time when she had no face, no name. If this is what happens in 8 months, what will happen in 8 years? I both can't wait and can't stand the time passing.
Happy 8 month B-day, kid.

Siena on her first day home

video

Siena is almost 8 months now...and we spend most of our time (well mommy does) trying hard to focus on now and not on how fast 'now' is passing by. In that spirit, what follows are a few memories of Siena as a newborn and her first few months. But only a few, so we can do 'now' the best we can.
