we spent all day today playing with ada's party favour glasses. i know she looks miserable, but i prefer to think of it as a dry sense of humour (no one does deadpan quite like ada), it is a nice yin to cohen's all over the place crazy goofy yang.

4 months and holding his head up high. he is still a peanut on the growth chart but what he lacks in weight he makes up for with smiles, so many many smiles.

i made the mistake of showing silvija (my mother in law) all of the half finished sewing projects i store in my project room, and she is now pushing me hard to get them finished. as a result, this is where you will most likely find me when the late afternoon sun hits my window (and often late into the night as well) one last project and then they are all done and it will be time to start some new ones.

a blanket over our patio table became a secret hideout where all of ada's dolls and several of cohen's trains hung out. here they are telling me that, "no adults are allowed!"
