Graecyn is watching sitting back and watching Justin Timberlake’s fifth appearance on Saturday Night Live. I think she’s commenting on his performance.
Mia and Kaleb were blowing bubbles outside during Kaiden’s first birthday party. Kaleb decided to walk from the playground and down the sidewalk trail. Mia followed. There was a little hill past an intersection path that Kaleb decided to walk up. Mia followed. Up the hill they both went toward a house. Kaleb made it all the way to the top. Mia – about 90% before she slipped, causing her shoe to fall off. I was there right behind her to fix her shoe and encourage her the rest of the way up to the top.
Getting down is a different story.

But rather than tell people they can’t shoot their food — the food they are so proud to eat that they need to share it immediately with everyone they know — he simply takes them back into his kitchen to shoot as the plates come out. “We’ll say, ‘That shot will look so much better on the marble table in our kitchen,’ ” Mr. Bouley said. “It’s like, here’s the sauce, here’s the plate. Snap it. We make it like an adventure for them instead of telling them no.
I guess at some restaurants they’ll help you take better photos, while at others they’ll stop you from taking photos. I’ve never really thought twice about taking photos of the food I eat. But then again, I don’t go to anywhere fancy.
Yes, it’s sexist, but it’s also just weird and sad. Why can a boy walk around with Yoda on his underwear, but a young female “Star Wars” fan can’t? It’s gender marketing at its very worst.
Mia has a Darth Vader “Star Wars” shirt. If she wanted “Star Wars” underwear, I wouldn’t hesitate in buying them, even if they were boys underwear.
“I wanted to push the Hallelujah deep into the secular world, into the ordinary world,” he once said. “The Hallelujah, the David’s Hallelujah, was still a religious song. So I wanted to indicate that Hallelujah can come out of things that have nothing to do with religion.”
Breaking down Leonard Cohen’s classic Hallelujah. I loved this song, even though it has been so played out in the last several years. If you like this song, you should seek out more Leonard Cohen songs.
We were hanging out in the living room on the Sunday afternoon before baby Graecyn’s arrival when I took this photo. Mia was enjoying a few vanilla wafers and wearing her sunglasses while watching an episode of Dora the Explorer.

I wanted to take a photo of Graecyn yesterday with my iPhone 4S. I launched the camera app from the lock screen. The familiar shutter image appeared but didn’t proceed any further through the process. I tried again and again, quitting a relaunching, but nothing happened.
I did a hard reset, tried booting into different camera apps I have on my iPhone, but each resulted in no joy.
I did a web search and found that this was an experienced problem with some users. I went through the basic restore steps, even wiping my phone completely without restoring from a back-up. The problem did not go away.
I’m guessing it is a hardware issue since it affects all the photo taking apps I had. We’ll see what the Genius Bar says tomorrow.
Update: Just got back from the Apple Store. The problem was hardware – the front camera was no longer working. This is one of the things I like about an iPhone, the ability to go to the Apple Store to get it fixed. Where would I go to get my Android phone fixed if I had a problem? The carrier most likely. I’m not sure their level of service would be the same.
