Alex--five months old? How sweet! ^___^

Enjoy those moments, hon. When they hit two, you'll be really glad for your powers of memory recall... ;-)

Yayo--Work...oof. Did you have to use that awful four-letter-word...? *shudders*

It's the little beautiful things that make life worth living. Right now, that beautiful little thing in my life is a 5 month old baby that cries and spits up. Then laughs and brightens up my day.

Hmm...I wish you could share my sense of wonder, Yayo. I hope that, perhaps some day soon, you will.

I'll admit, I'm a very devout Christian. Perhaps that colors my perception of the world around me, and how even a small thing like myself exists in it. But even before I converted, I always looked at the universe around me and delighted in all its marvels--and felt like an honored guest at the most incredible function in existence. I just can't look at all this, and believe it happened by simple chance.

But that's a debate for another time... ;-)
