- ...she is really
photogenic, right? I'm not just being the normal
annoying dad, right? Right?
- That video is
about the most precious thing I've ever witnessed and
I'm sad it doesn't go longer. I really did bring it
onto the timeline and say out loud "how do I edit
this?". Just so precious...
- ...not to say
she's always like that. I will be the first to
tell you, she is quite fussy and quite particular and
I will be stunned if this kid has one
OUNCE of mellow in her until she's 50. But in
pictures? A perfect angel. Thought I'd collect a
few from the last couple of months that have made
their way onto Facebook but alluded The
cuter than baby toes? No.
- GO FREAKING BUCKS.
2012-0 the year she was born.
Tree Lights are amazing... man look at those
- If my
hands aren't throbbing, there's time for tunes before
took this pic. I adore the disheveled cropping to
go with Vienna's hair.
- ZEBRA CAT!!!!
got Vienna some new threads. Dig
- So, as you could
see from the video, we're in the "wonder" stage of
baby-life. Everything she sees is new. Everything is
amazing. She can't wait to figure everything out. This
will obviously continue for many years but my
honest-to-goodness goal is to use my life and
experiences to help her keep that sense of wonder
forever. Talya too. All the places we've traveled, all
the parts of life we've experienced (good and bad)...
life really is spectacular if you make everything a
"chapter" and not a "book". I'm still stunned at how
often people look at every moment in their life as
"DEFINING" instead of "momentary". Life is a series of
chapters and you just keep turning the pages. Not one
thing ever defines you for any longer than you want it
to. That's why I still have wonder. That's why
I still believe anything is possible. And yes, as
every parent says, I look into Vienna's eyes and
I do indeed believe anything is possible. The
roads I had to travel to get to look in those
eyes were so long and sooooo winding. (warm
- Alright, it's
SUSHI TIME. Jimmy's sister Kallie and their mom
Karen (technically my 2nd cousin and, uhm... shit I
don't know but we are related) are here and Kallie is
a big sushi fan so Talya and I are taking her to
our favorite spot. It's certainly nice to have family
for the holidays. Oh and incredibly... Jimmy is still
going to try to commute to Anaheim in the new year
while working at Disneyland. Crazy. Then again,
because of extremely early hours he can pull it off in
about 45 minutes, but whew... just seems insane to me
to make that drive. The man IS all things DISNEY so
nothing should surprise me really.
- Wow, only three
more entries left in 2012. The years just don't get
any better than this.
