Cousin Conner

it's hard to put the miraculous into words... okay, so not hard for some people, yet hard for me. last Sunday i watched Conner Ashleigh Aumend, my brand sparkling new nephew, enter the world. he's perfect. seeing this little man draw his very first breath, hearing him, watching him calm in his mothers arms for the very first time... knowing i'll be bound to witness it a hundred times more... well, all i can say is that babies are hopeful creatures. one of their many miracles is that in an instant they simply extinguished all the cynicism, criticism and skepticism that can build up in a soul. i love conner ashleigh, and his mum and dad. three cheers for sara and adam!

things are changing around here. we now live in america. we're settling in. i must confess i felt a lot cooler when i lived in the dominican republic. but hey, things are changing. we're changing the blog with the hopes we'll frequent it more often. i've changed into an aunt which was a new one for me. we're changing into people who owe other people money because we've changed into people who need to buy a car, which required us to change into people who have car insurance. i changed into that person who backs her mother in laws car into a parked car (therefore my transition into a car insurance holder was EXPENSIVE). jesse's changing into a bartender and the baby's changed into a drool factory who now roles over onto his stomach yet finds himself pissed to be prone. so... well, things are good here. moving right along. we'll keep you updated.

Ch-ch-ch-ch-Changes (Turn and face the strain)
Ch-ch-Changes Oh, look out you rock 'n rollers
Ch-ch-ch-ch-Changes (Turn and face the strain)
Ch-ch-Changes Pretty soon you're gonna get a little older
Time may change me But I can't trace time
