My favorite time of day.

After work, before supper, it's time for ...
"Sweepin' the clouds away
On my way to where the air is sweet ...
It's a magic carpet ride
Every door will open wide ...
Can you tell me how to get
How to get to Sesame Street!"

Gabriella watches her furry red friend while I get to inhale her wonderful baby smell for a whole half hour.

Beautiful mama.

I just love this picture of my friend Tara and her beautiful two-month-old son, Max Jacob. We've known each other for twenty years, and I've never been more proud of her. Welcome to mommyhood, Stek!

Beauty is in the eye of the beholder.

On Christmas Day, in front of a small crowd of people, Gabriella pointed to this image on television ...
... and exclaimed, with love and admiration, "Mama!". Not exactly what a woman who is six-months pregnant wants to be compared to: a prehistoric elephant.

Then, yesterday, as Michael drew a series of funny faces, most of whom reminded Gabriella of Elmo, she suddenly found one that caused her to exclaim, again with love and admiration, "Mama!".
I'm trying not to get a complex.
