It is hard to believe that my birthday has come around again already. Life is starting to speed up, like everyone said it would. I was taking my birthday portrait when Wyle decided to join me. It is a pretty representative scene of our daily life, I suppose: unmade bed, laundry to be ironed in the background, my child wearing a sleeveless dress on a freezing day, and me trying to get something done and being interrupted. That is life as usual these days, and it is pretty sweet.
