holy shit, y'all, the bean's less than a month from her first birthday. i'm cleaning out/backing up my iPhoto library and getting all oogly over pictures of those first days, weeks, months of her life. it seems like just yesterday, truly.
crap! i gotta finish her party invitations. damn. i'd hoped to get them done up in mammoth while there were lots of willing eyes and arms to watch her, but we were just having too much fun playing with her all the time and i didn't even make a dent.
which reminds me, i'll have a photo-filled recap of the trip soon. we did make it to the internment camp (thanks, monkey and others) at manzanar yesterday, and it was such a sobering and sad visit. on another note, we also made the stop at schat's bakery for sandwiches and "cheeze" bread. yummy!
now, back to real life. and birthday princess month officially began yesterday! whee!
and, it's good to be able to breathe again. ah, l.a. smog. i missed you.
