|all baby hats should have ears on them, don't you think? (says the sleepy-looking mama)|
|he's still pretty tiny though...|
big sister gigi has been adjusting well. she really loves her baby brother dean, or according to her 'dino bambino.' she is very helpful and would like to be even more helpful i.e. she wants to change the poopy diapers. i somehow think that would result in an even bigger mess than just the poop itself, so she has to be content to be my assistant and hand me wipes.
|so much energy!|
|hats with ears! for every child!|
|she sure looks big now...|
and of course i have consumed many cups of tea. in fact i'm drinking one right now! in the last week i finally have really started feeling like myself again. it feels so good. i've been cooking and somehow that makes everything right with my world.

i really want to get back to posting more frequently and taking photos with my actual camera, instead of only my iPhone. i have many more things to talk about, but my tea cup is now empty and the rest of the family is awake, so this will have to do for now. have a great weekend everyone!
