Off to a great start

I am so pleased with the results of Iowa's Caucus last night! I've loved Barack Obama since the first time I saw him speak at the Democratic National Convention back 3 1/2 years ago. He just blew me away with his honesty and no nonsense approach of unity and hope and I knew the man was someone I need to pay attention to. Let's hope New Hampshire goes just as well. Although in the grand scheme of things this is just a small blip, it does put him on the map, it does make people take more notice and hopefully then consider voting him as our next leader.

Poor Hillary. She thought she had it all wrapped up. But know what they say about assuming.

In other news, Sophie will soon be nine months. She is still crawling everywhere, standing up and cruising, and lets go for several seconds. She still has NO teeth, but is definitely in pain so maybe one will pop through soon. But David didn't get teeth until 12 months, so maybe this is the one thing she inherited from him :-)

For Christmas we went to Miami. And by we I mean me and Sophie. David is having some anxiety issues and chose not to fly right now. But we had a nice time just the two of us and she was so good on the plane! I was able to get her her own seat (carseat) using my airmiles, so that was a big plus. It was nice seeing everyone and letting Sophie have the run of the house. And of course she got TONS of new toys.

It's absolutely freezing here now, in the teens and twenties, and it's tough staying in so much with Sophie. But she seems very comfortable and content in our little apartment so that's a relief.

Happy 2008 everyone. We made it!

That's cool you've heard Obama speak! Yes, I was pleased with his standing in Iowa, and I think that maybe it's a really positive sign that a place like Iowa would rank Obama first!

I can't believe you flew to Miami with Sophie all by yourself! You go girl! Glad to hear she was good on the plane. I am a big fan of separate seats for babies - not just for safety, but also for comfort as well.

Glad you had a great Christmas, and happy new year!!

Thanks Irene. I was so nervous going with her on my own but it all worked out fine. She slept half the way both times and played nicely the other half. Only a little crying here and there but nothing I couldn't handle. Without her own seat I can't imagine holding her while she sleeps for over an hour!
