Ber, Lately

video

Ber is experimenting with sounds now... I had to be inconspicuous with the camera (if he can see it well, he gets too curious to keep doing the cute things I always try to record!), so sorry for the less than stellar focus! haha! Oh, and don't mind my husky voice--I have a cold. YES! blech.

I have a Family!

It's slowly dawning on me that my boys and I are a FAMILY. It's a ridiculous thought most of the time--Pat and I are, well, at least I am way too immature to be on my own taking care of my own. But here we are! Somehow, we are pulling it off! We love little Ber, and every day I get to know him a bit better. He is such a sweetiebear--I put him down for a nap about ten minutes ago and as I was closing the door I looked back at his crib. His little head was poking up above the side, bobbing and shaking in his strain to support it, just so that he could see where I was going! Quite an impressive crunch. haha. What a cutie-patootie.

Amateur Moviemaker? I say, Visionary!

video

You've not seen many angles like this one. I'd be surprised if this single clip doesn't revolutionize the field of cinematography. Oh, and Ber's cuteness and smarts will skyrocket him to stardom as well. Obviously. :)

Some footage of the Ber

He loves Pat!

And no, he's not always in his play-seat... that's just the only time I have hands free to photograph/record him. The little rascal! :)

Pay-up Time













I've been racking up some significant picture debt over the last few weeks... this post should make us even. :)

In Pizza Heaven

warm patio lights
fingertips, floured by the slice:
"It's Italian"

Pizza good enough to inspire a haiku? You'd better believe it. Not that you should correlate the quality of this haiku to the quality of that pizza--I'm at best a dabbler in the subtleties of Japanese poetry, but the "It's Italian" restaurant in Austin knows their margherita :P

I would consider myself somewhat of an expert, however, when it comes to judging pizza . I rhapsodized my way through the world pizza champion's four-cheese pizza in San Fransisco last Christmas, an event which turned my pizza world on its head. Okay, that's an understatement. It changed my life. I can practically taste it as I type.

(Excuse me as I wipe drool from the keyboard.)

That may be because I have exceptionally retentive tastebuds... but it's probably because I haven't brushed my teeth since eating a runner-up tonight, an echo of that incredible experience at Tony's in San Fran. YES! "It's Italian" may be in a strip mall in central Texas, but bless my basil-loving soul their pizza is inspiring.
