We let the kiddo stay up late watch the Sharks game tonight, and he was sawing logs by the end of regulation. Such a sweet kid, he didn't have it in him to wait through a 15 minute intermission just watch the Sharks foul it up. Lucky for us, they came through--all it took was a two-man advantage. Hmmm.

Tonight we celebrated our good friends and their new daughter (well, new-ish, she's already seven months old) with a baby-naming ceremony. She officially got her Hebrew name, and we got to hold her and bless her and wish for good things for her. It was lovely, and if I had any real guts I'd have stolen that delicious baby and taken her home. Honestly, she's one of those chunky babies with a big, gummy smile, and she giggles and clutches on to your thumb and makes you feel that all is right with the world.
And when she's around, it is.

The 6 am flight from SFO to EWR. Lots of markers and two barf bags.
Ladybug season delighted the kiddo, especially at the beach. There were many rescue missions for ladybugs found in the water.

Behold, the power of the five year old.
"Mommy, I really like your yarn. It's so pretty. I bet you could make a hat with it. You could make the nicest hat ever with your pretty yarn and your yarn sticks. Mommy, I bet you could make a hat for me."
And for the first time in more than 4 years, I'm knitting.

There was lots of driving to and fro over the weekend, and it was definitely one of the times when I love Max's convertible. We were a picture of a happy family: little league, picnics and festivals with friends, a wonderful handmade Mother's Day gift and breakfast, and we even found time to clean the house. Just stick us on the cover of Perfection magazine.
