I'm so sorry that things have been quiet around here for a few days. this past weekend was incredibly busy, and today the dust has finally started to settle. on friday i came home from ohio and attended the opening for travis' thesis exhibition. his speech was wonderful, and his work looks great. i'm so proud of him!
our parents and travis' brother were here all weekend, so saturday and sunday were equally as busy. everyone except for my mom left yesterday. she is here until wednesday morning. saturday night we enjoyed an amazing meal at our favorite restaurant. sylvie tried both octopus and rabbit for the first time and loved them both! she also went to town on some rosewater black pepper ice cream and some butterscotch pudding. my girl can eat! in fact, in the almost 3 month since she started solids, she's enjoyed raw salmon, duck tamales, palak paneer, lamb shank, fish and chips, curry, and goat cheese. my baby is awesome. just sayin'.
next step: BABY-PROOFING. sylvie is this close to crawling, and is scooting/log rolling everywhere. she has such busy hands. i feel like she's into something potentially unsafe every time i turn around. NOT COOL.
on a separate note, a big CONGRATULATIONS to my cousin, marci! she is expecting baby #3 this fall. travis, sylvie, and i can't wait to meet the little guy or gal!
