Reposting with actual information.
First, Ashley, a college friend of mine (whom I actually met in Switzerland) was from Homer, AK. He said Jewel (the singer) was too. I wonder if he is still there. ? His name is Loren but I forget his last name. I don't think Loren for a guy is too common though!
Also, I went to UW too. We were there at the same time, kind of. I went from 1/2000 to 6/2002. Funny!
P has become more demanding lately-- he wakes often at night and doesn't like it when people leave him alone too much. But, he climbs on things (recently, the couch and anything that can function as a makeshift step) and walks with things. He's a really good cruiser. He has 8 teeth and I have no idea if more are coming. He hasn't been as into food lately, but still likes it. Definitely he is a reverse cycler.
He and DH go on daily bike rides now that the weather is good, and they both really enjoy this.
P is still a really happy kid, he smiles and makes funny faces all of the time, he clearly says mama, dad, and hey. It's so fun to see him excited by something.
I'll be back later. Happy birthday to Sam and Marlow!!
Oh, and fireant, I am wondering if you're ok? It seems you're really concerned about your anonymity-- is everything alright?
I guess Leigh Anne never returned after Lent. ? And, of course, others are gone now too.
