The fact of storytelling hints at a fundamental human unease, hints at human imperfection. Where there is perfection there is no story to tell.
– Ben Okri
This week was an imperfect one. My emotions were on high alert as I try to juggle work and family. It’s that time of year when everything seems to be happening at once!
Emily is getting two new teeth this week (for a total of six), causing her quite a bit of misery. She simply would not smile for her 8 month birthday photos. This was as close as I got.

She is adorable! So serious and I can see so much of Steve and you both in her! 🙂
seriously? she is SOOOOO cute!
Your little cutie is about a month older than mine. She finally broke her first tooth, I just discovered that today. Hooray! She has been up at night, every night since Easter. She was sleeping very nicely though the night before this. Hopefully that second one comes fast and she can get back to sleeping! Just found your site today and will be back!
