two fun things

photo from the lovely hillside town of Asolo, where we stopped for a meandering walk and a delicious dinner after our weekend in the Dolomite dairy cottage

It's Labor Day evening here in Sicily.  We don't ever want this day to end, partly because of the marvelous rainstorm outside our open windows.  There's a taste of autumn in these fresh breezes.

Thought you would enjoy two happy bits of news from around here:
  • I felt the baby move!  I got this goofy grin on my face and just laid there in bed for the longest time feeling those little kicks under my hand.  My Baby Center updates say that the baby is about as big as a bell pepper now.  How tiny does that make his/her itty bitty feet?
  • Lena said, "Ciao!"  We've been working on this one for months.  It sounds more like "dowww."  She likes calling out this first Italian word to random passersby... so cute.
What's the happy news from your neck of the woods this weekend?


  1. SUCH a good pic! But is there ever a bad one..?

  2. I want to hear that ciao! Che bimba!!

    Happy news....I am on holiday - 2 weeks to travel to see friends in Spain and Switzerland and take a little road trip to Portugal with my dear friend Mariana.

  3. I've been feeling my baby move too!! :) it is such a miracle.


let's have a conversation!
