So - We Suppose There IS Something New in Life

So, the reality - for those of you who haven't figured us out yet - is that Leon and I are terrible bloggers.


Imagine that in several thousand years, someone is able to unearth the Internet and digs through all of the unfinished, yet-to-be-updated pages of millions of people (people that Leon and I seem too much like). They would look at our blog and think, "How sad. Some people were content to be happy only about the purchase of a new table. How tragic their circumstances. How devoid of meaning their daily lives must have been."

Yup. That's us. Doing our part to contribute to the cultural anthropology of 2007 America.

In reality ~ life is too full for blogging (there, that sounds justified!). With a summer jam packed FULL of events and vacations and Gatherings and .... BABY, where do we begin?

(And our other question is always this, "who's reading this thing?")

So ~ unlike sad promises I made to myself each January in my personal journal, I will not claim to be turning over a new blog leaf. BUT the update is that Leon and I are having a Baby Girl. Her name is Sydney Grace and we couldn't be more thrilled that she will soon be part of our daily, mundane, apparently dining room table fixated living!

There she is, peering up at us. It's like one of those puzzle art pieces a few decades back, stare at this long enough and you will see two eyes, a little nose, and the indentation of lips as Sydney's little face peers up at the ultrasound dealy. "Hey, what's going on up there?" We of course think she is gorgeous! And definitely worth writing about ~ so perhaps we will turn over that new blogging leaf.

In the meanwhile, I am off to enjoy another cup of java at my dining room table.

+Gret & Leon

I am thrilled that you posted Sydney's picture!! She's MUCH cuter than a dining room table and we love her already!
Don't bemoan your blogging lapses... celebrate them... we are all excited to see whatever you have time to post! (And Leon's parents will be too!!!)

It's a GIRL!! Yeah!

Kelly and I are so excited for you!

Not going to lie, I stopped clicking your link on my blog a long time ago ;-) For some reason I did tonight, and WHAM! Holy blogs, batman! Gretchen posted!

Hope you are well. Sem orientation starts this Wednesday :-S

You'd better post more often once that little cutie pops out! I want to see weekly updates of my adorable little niece! I must say, I think her ultrasound photo is very clear!! I always think of FRIENDS (to quote you back at yourself!) and the episode with Rachel, where she gets the ultrasound and cries because she can't see the baby. "What are we looking at???? I don't see it!!" But with yours, I DEFINITELY see her! She looks like she has big eyes already!

Nate thinks she looks like Leon. :)

Congratulations on your growing belly! So happy for you two! The addition of a daughter to a household is a WONDERFUL thing! Congrats!

Congratulations again, dear Gretchen! Baby girls really do add sugar and spice. :) Sydney is really, really pretty.

I, for one, echo sentiments that you ought to post more regularly. I would like nothing better than to be continually updated on your and Sydney's progress.

Hooray, hooray, hooray!!!
