do you know aaron eskaran? he's a really good friend, and a talented photographer, and the trumpet player for upstanding youth... so very cool on so many levels. :)
anyway, he took our family portraits on tuesday and we got a little taste today of the result and i hope he doesnt mind me putting one up on here cuz i love them!
today i am thankful for him and i am thankful for feeling like i have so many hands holding me up all the time.
i do my fair share of whining. i guess a blog is good for that sometimes. i have so many fiercely loyal friends and family members who are there for me when i get down and that is so nice, so nice.
we are feeling lighter today. no driving around for work, just some easy stuff on the computer. i kept a tissue stuffed in my nose and cleaned my house: dishes, laundry, organized the clutter... check, check, and check!
amby is napping finally and that is always nice too. why is it that parents so look forward to their child napping? i know it is not that i cant wait to be away from him. but it is nice to collect oneself in the quiet almost reverence that is a house with a sleeping baby in it. it's almost like doing yoga, very serene.
i do feel lighter. partly due to you, partly due to me, and that's the way it should be. it's nice to have awesome people around you to offer to help (diana, sofia, liko, ashley, melissa, echo, bille-- etc. you are all noted in my book of people i am eternally grateful for) and it is also nice to reach within yourself and get it together.
