Been Busy Baking…

Buns!

Or a bun that is cooking in my personal oven…

Little Fisch-Baby should be arriving in April of 2014 and we couldn’t be more thrilled!

Last night we shared the news with many friends with this costume…Woody wore a chef coat and baker’s hat!  At first, a few thought it was just a funny joke and that we had a really good sense of humor…and then the truth was revealed…

Here’s the bump as of 17 weeks…

And here are a few photos of the bump progress from the last few weeks…

7 Weeks, 12 Weeks and 15 Weeks

So far the 2nd trimester has been much more enjoyable than the first…and let’s keep it that way!  On Sunday, I leave to teach two courses back to back outside of Mammoth…not to return until the 18th.  It’s just a guess, but after an absence of two weeks…Woody might be a little shocked at bump!  We’ll see

It’s Wednesday…

And we are well into the month of March. Where does the time go? I’m afraid I’ll blink and it will be April!

This week I’m…

  • Prepping for my next WFR course in San Francisco…
  • Playing travel agent and locking down flights for a bunch of trips coming up (both work and personal)…
  • Enjoying the 80 degree weather we’re having…
  • Realizing the house needs a thorough cleaning…
  • Enjoying this video…
  • Hoping to find a day to head back up to Mt. Baldy, now as an official Patroller Candidate…
  • Attending a baby shower
  • Am thinking this might just have to be made…

    • Trying to catch up on missed episodes of Revenge (guilty pleasure)…
    • Going to see some Western Swing on Friday evening – Cow Bop is playing at Viva Cantina in Burbank…
    • Sending Woody off to Berkeley to give a talk, and to Palo Alto for some more beam time…
    • and I can’t seem to get enough of this little gem either…

How is your week going?

So it’s 2013…

Turns out (shocking, I know) I took a lot of photos during 2012…perhaps too many.  Some made it up here, but at least 80% did not.  I found a neat little app (memovy) that will time-lapse photos from your phone and add a little music to it as well.

(also, I mistakenly titled it 2013…when it should really say 2012…but I can’t change it now…so deal)

Here’s a quick recap of 2012…
