“The real pleasure was having the chance to enjoy being weightless, and the other was to spend some time looking out at this beautiful Earth that we’re all lucky to inhabit.”  Robert Crippen

Today is Baby Girl’s second birthday.  Papa G and I spent the day out and about with her just having fun. We went to the Chabot Space and Science Center in the Oakland Hills.  It’s a great place to take kids . . . fairly new and lots of great activities.  One exhibit was all about weightlessness in space.  In this one, I pressed the button on a touch screen, then stepped on to this mat with Papa and Ella.  A message said for us to JUMP!  When we did – it snapped out picture.  It’s supposed to look like we are weightless in space!  It didn’t turn out that great – but it was a lot of fun.  There was an option to e-mail it to yourself . . . so I did and thus it becomes my 365 for today!  

We head off to Vegas for the 365 Meetup tomorrow . . . I’m going to miss the little one so much.  I’ve been with her every day for the last four weeks!  

Hmm . . . I wonder who is going to go through withdrawal more . . . 



“Think left and think right and think low and think high.  Oh, the thinks you can think up if only you try!”  Dr Seuss

Baby Girl wakes up every morning giggling and happy and playful.  It’s the most amazing experience for her Papa and I.  I love to listen to her talking with her stuffies in her crib – which she will do for almost half an hour.  Then I’ll hear a tentative “Ya Ya?”  When I get up and go in to get her, she giggles with joy and hides under her blanket.  How can one not just have a great day after waking up to that??  This morning, her last day here in Canada with us, she decided to climb on the window ledge in our bedroom and look outside for the birdies.  I love the whispy softness of this shot – taken with my iPad and processed in Photoshop CS6 with Nik Color Effex Pro.  

I’m going to miss her so much!  But I am so blessed to have had the opportunity to spend this quality time with her.
