And speaking of my birthday, Geoff made me a birthday cake, and this is what it looked like before I blew out all the candles with one mighty gust of breath.

(You know what? I think I forgot to make a wish. Is there a default wish, like a year's worth of happiness, or something?)

Today is my birthday. I'm 34 years old.

There's a new entry up in the journal.

Katie is only an apprentice with the spoon.

Katie had "solid" food for the first time yesterday - sweet potatoes. She didn't get a whole lot of them into her mouth, but she liked what she tasted. After her first spoonful, she started reaching for the spoon herself. When we gave her the spoon, she ended up hitting herself in the eyebrow, the cheek, the chin, the nose - sweet potatoes flew everywhere.

It was a banner weekend for Katie; on Saturday, she wore her first swimsuit and went for her first "swim."

I love being her mom.
