Best year ever, so far. Some highs:
January 3rd, 2007. Monito's first photo at the amnio which proved him healthy:
May 5 - 6: Homestead Mama and I celebrate our 7th anniversary. We picked a weekend instead of a day - always guaranteed a Saturday night. Things just keep getting better. I am ever assured that I waited for the right woman.
June 14th, 2007. Monito is born.
Pequita turned 1 year old, with tutu.
C-section instead of natural birth. Six weeks of no picking up my hefty daughter = awful.
I lost an old friend of 14 years.
Other bloggers are tallying their picks and pans from the year. I'll play.
Best Movies: Are you kidding, with two babies? Do CSI reruns count? Homestead Mama and I are going to live on the wild side tomorrow and ring in the new year by renting the DVD of the latest Harry Potter movie. I wonder if it is out on DVD.
Best books: The Time Traveler's Wife, Playful Parenting, Siblings Without Rivalry.
Best Music: Steve Earle's Washington Street Serenade, Rough Guide's African Music for Children, Cuban Lullaby.
Best new recipe: Penne pasta with a sun dried tomato garlic sauce served over steamed spinach. Takes only minutes, all pantry items, and delicious.
Best new skill: Breastfeeding. Hands down.
