[Comments] (2) Sat Sep 19 20:49:03 baby got born!:

Well, it has been almost two months since I wrote here, at ~40 weeks pregnant.  The baby is about 7 weeks old, and doing well.  We're busy over here, but I hope to still post to this blog from time to time.  Life is very different here; we run on cyclical 3 hours schedules of sleep, but still manage to get out to do 'normal' things like see a movie or visit friends; usually just abbreviated versions of these pastimes though. We just returned from celebrating our three year anniversary in Mendocino, with the baby and the dog. :) Other than that, not much to report.

I have been somewhat keeping up with the baby blog Drew made for our baby boy.  However, it is private, so if you'd like to see what he is up to, email me your yahoo, gmail, or aol email address (or other openID account name).  I'm way behind my other projects, and other little things I want to do.  A running list:

Write to Kelsi blog

Make DMV appointment


Make a soft headboard for our bed

Store baby's newborn clothes and organize 3 month+ clothes for wearing now done, and repeated. 9 month old wearing 18 month clothing
