The legal alien

Posted by sol in images, my sons are smarter than me

Yesterday for Michele’s birthday, we got Santiago’s organ scan and 4-D ultrasound. It was great to hear that he’s growing well and everything is in place. He’s weighing around 540 grams right now. We’re 22 weeks along. 18 more to go.

Here’s his little face on the 4-D ultrasound. He’s asleep, resting his head on a very comfy placenta pillow.

Christmas Bonanza Extravaganza

Posted by sol in I wanted to be an architect, images, list

ok, it can be a bit embarrassing, with the recession and all, but this Christmas was something out of the ordinary:

Damiano got:

a truck:

a Mr. Potato Head, which became an instant favorite:

I got:

a Nikon D60 SLR Camera. Wow.

a Guss Woll non stick pan:

a tangent4 internet radio:

Michele got:

a kick ass guitar, though not strictly a Christmas present

Kartell bookworm bookshelf, which we already mounted: (we meaning Michele, of course)

an iPod touch:

I’ve been saying this for the last 4 years, but I swear that next year we’ll be austere and give only symbolic presents. And who knows, maybe we’ll be forced to.

it’s nice to be back.

Very adventurous, our trip back home was full of surprises and imponderables, but we finally made it back to our cosy home and couldn’t be happier. Tomorrow, if the jet lag allows me to be more than a zombie, I’ll post some highlights of our Mexican vacation. Damiano, alas, got sick and I’ll be sleeping with one eye open to check on his cough and fever.

Here he is, on the last day at Acapulco, showing me his 18 teeth.

What I did yesterday instead of packing

Posted by sol in craftulence, images

A 20 minute bamboo ring mini purse for Lisi!! The fabric is that stunning Erin McMorris fabric I bought on Etsy a while back. The lining is a piece of IKEA curtain, and it took me barely 20 minutes from start to finish. I didn’t even plan, measure, iron or baste anything. I just went ahead and sewed. w3I love it!!! The only tricky part was sewing in the rings, but it was feasible. It is the right size for a little girl to carry her toy cellphone around.
