happy birthday!

Anah is 3 months old today. She is already scooting (has been trying and getting better since she was born) - she pushes with both feet to move forward -, smiling, laughing, talking, all the things that 3 month olds do. I'm sure most babies only three months old don't scoot. Today during pilates group she rolled from her back to her tummy. She's been rolling onto her back for a couple of weeks. She loves to pull herself up to standing and to hang from our fingers. She's a strong little girl. And happy. We're glad she's in our family. Right now she's trying to put her passifier in her mouth, but she's holding the string. I think I'll give her a hand.

Signing out, and back into work,


“It's been quite a ride. I loved every minute of it.”

Rest in peace, Charlton Heston.

This quote is from a speech given to the Harvard Law School Forum February 16, 1999.

"You are the best and the brightest. You, here in the fertile cradle of American academia, here in the castle of learning on the Charles River, you are the cream. But I submit that you, and your counterparts across the land, are the most socially conformed and politically silenced generation since Concord Bridge. And as long as you validate that ... and abide it ... you are - by your grandfathers’ standards - cowards."

It doesn't take but a few minutes, and it should challenge you.
