Sweet Maia, a few days ago ;)

My cousin wasn't the only one to get a late batch of photos from me. A really great friend who I love who has an adorable daughter is a victim of my slow processing as well.

And why? I am usually not so slow about delivering pictures, but what can I say? It's been a crazy couple months.

My friend Katey, her husband Jason and their lovely daughter Maia were in town, ahem, a few days (months?) ago and made the time to grab lunch with me, Alex and our friend Caroline. And apparently I really wanted to snap a few photos of Maia so that I could keep them to myself, because, hmm, well, Katey already knows what Maia looks like! ;)

Sorry Katey. I hope you like these.

My favorite

Maia had great fun playing around in the parking lot (sorry we didn't have time to go to a more picturesque venue!), especially when it came time to play with her balloon!

Katey and Jason, thanks for sharing her with me for a few minutes. We had a great time!

Too soon for NaBloPoMo-block!

So I'm having trouble coming up with something to write about today.

This will not do.

It is way to soon for me to be out of things to say.

So today, all I have to say is that I have a cold. And I want to sleep. I'll work on being more interesting tomorrow. :)

Worst. Post. Ever. Click here to read more!

On September 29th, my brother Patrick called me. You know, he said, you only have one more day to write a post in September. I acknowledged his powers of observation and explained I just didn't have time.

By October, he must have given up, because I didn't get my warning call on Friday.

But now it's November, NaBloPoMo (National Blog Posting Month - aka, the month in which you are supposed to post every day). Last year, I had an huge trip to Australia, New Zealand and Japan to write about. It took me more than the month of November to finish! What on earth am I going to write about now?

Ah, and now we see the genius inherent in my laziness. I've been saving up all of my good stories for November. Brilliant, right?

Yeah, it would be if I had a bevy of good stories, but for now, I just have a few things to share.

Like the day my cousin Susie visited my mom and I with my aunt Mary and her son Liam (my first cousin, once removed, according to the very complicated tree on Wikipedia). You may remember him from here.

Eh, what does it matter what his title is, he's a cutie.

No, we didn't let a seven-month-old go down the slide alone.
His mom is braced to catch him and strategically cropped out of the picture. :)

We had a great time at the playground. Liam was fascinated by the falling leaves, and he only tried to eat a few of them!

And he's such a ham. I had such a great time!!

Susie, I'm so sorry these took so long. I should have all the pics to you shortly.
