Hi.  It's been awhile.  Yes, part of it's taking care of Alexander, but the truth is that most of the reason for lack of posts is lack of content.  I don't really have anything to blog about anymore...now that I'm back in the ole USA and well, living the regular life.  A sweet life, I should say.  Look at that face:

At a month old.

I'm not sure if I want to continue on as a family update blog more for fam and friends or not.  I have a feeling life will get busier (now it's busy, but mostly newborn busy-ness of staying at home most of the day and nursing and trying to keep up with blog designing and house keeping-together.)  Not sure if I want to continue putting pics of my babe up on the internet either.

Abuela and Abuelo came to visit and we had fun.

  Always love a 3 generation photo.
Arturo, Arturo and Alejandro. :)

Inside U of Pittsburgh's Cathedral of Learning.

Showing them the campus. 

 We went out to eat!  I think easier with a sleeping newborn...will get harder in the coming months.

Elsie's mostly gotten over her jealousy, but always wants to be in the action and next to baby... my pictures often contain a furry beast in the corner:

We recently tried out the Ergo Baby Carrier - baby and Dad both love it.
It's perfect for going on little walks at night.  (I could use some exercise. :) ) The trees are starting to change colors and that never gets old to a Texan. (where we don't have this for those of you that don't know.)

He's grown so much already.  I see him developing more everyday.  He loves to look around, coo and gives us the best smiles.  

So, life is good in this hood.  this motherhood and neighborhood. :)

Beautiful pics! Alexander is so sweet! And very alert looking for such a wee babe. Hope he's a good sleeper too! Can't believe he's over a month already.
Just one word for you Carolyn...and you know what it is. Facebook!!! ;-) Oh wait, two more words! Miss you!!!

Maybe that could be the title of your new blog - Life in the 'Hood?
Don't stop blogging, we love it!
