I'm an Auntie! Again!


Tuesday afternoon, Anthony Joseph Berlingo arrived in this world, weighing in at 9 pounds, zero ounces and almost 22 inches long! Mom and baby are both doing well. My nephew Nicholas is very happy to have a baby brother and not another stinky girl (he's 8, what can I say?) I'm guessing little Gracie doesn't know what is going on, seeing how she's only 2.

I'm still waiting for photos of the little bundle of joy. It will be July before I get a chance to say hello to him in person. I can't wait.

Yay! Baby!

Happy Birthday to Me!

Today is my 32nd birthday. Yippie! Here's the oldest photo of myself that I have. It's me when I was 5 weeks old. Gotta love that 70's green couch.

Me at 5 Weeks Old

This is an extra special birthday for me. Not because 32 is "milestone year," but rather because it's a personal milestone. My father died when I was 16. Today he is gone for as long as I knew him (well, technically that happens in Oct, but still).

I Turn 16

I love my father's smile as he watches me blow out the candles on my overloaded cupcake. I love you dad. I can still feel you smiling at me. Here's to another great birthday.

Home, Yet Still Homesick


I'm home, after 1.5 weeks on the road. It was two trips to the client site in Atlanta with a trip to see my aunt and grandmother sandwiched in between. They were all good trips. Good work was done. It was wonderful to spend the time with my Nana. I love seeing my Aunt and her Beau. Forgot to take any photos, but oh well.

But I still miss my cats. And my bed. And my E. I got home last night after 11. The kids freaked out that I was finally home. It was good to sleep in my own bed. But it was hard to get up this morning and leave again. Tonight is the Adaptive Path party and it will be a late(ish) night. I feel like I don't have a chance to feel like I'm home for a few more days yet.

And it doesn't help that E is off on his photo class weekend. I hope he's having a great time and seeing all kinds of neat things and learning a ton. But I still miss him. Lots. It's weird not to see him on instant messager. And because he's in Death Valley, there's no cell coverage so I can't even call and talk with him.

Oh well. He'll be home Sunday night. I'll go down to Sunnyvale and see him. And then we are playing hookie from work on Monday to spend some time with each other. It will be over 2 weeks since we've seen each other. I can't wait. I miss him so.
