Ok, so today is an exciting day since Tio Dardo came to meet his nephew! That's the first thing.
But Dardo didn't come empty handed. He brought a very cool gift for Radar...
That's right, it's a non-fiction book titled "Mama voted for Obama." All true... I read the book and it turns out that every word inside is pure non-fiction. By way of example, some random pages read as follows:
"She didn't vote for a gorilla or a chinchilla or Godzilla. Mama voted for Obama!"
"She didnt' vote for a prairie dog or a pollywog or a big ol' hog. Mama voted for Obama!"
Cute, but mostly I'm posting this because it gives me a chance to repost a picture of me with Matt Damon from late October!! That's the second thing.
Lastly, I would like to start the smile watch... I've read that babies normally smile for the first time between 4 to 6 weeks of age. Radar is 3 weeks and 2 days old today and although I catch fleeting smiles when he's napping or practicing facial movements, I still haven't seen a deliberate smile. But we're getting close, so every day I'm going to try to catch a smile or something close to it on camera... this is the closest I could get today. I can't wait for that first real toothless smile to melt my heart! And that's the third thing.
Lots of love,
Titi and Radar
