who uses a machete to cut through red tape

Yesterday I talked with one local government representative on the phone, three additional representatives in their office, three receptionists at the Longmont clinic, two nurses, a pediatrician, a billing specialist at the hospital and a health department worker. That's twelve people. Every single one of them was a woman. Stephen went to have a cavity filled, and the receptionist, dental hygienist and dentist were all women. Longmont is big on the ladies.

Speaking of girl power, Ivy is in the tenth percentile for weight and the ninetieth percentile for height. She's obviously destined to become America's Next Top Model Baby. Girlfriend already knows how to smize*:

*"Smile with your eyes," as coined by supermodel Tyra Banks on the thirteenth cycle of America's Next Top Model. Ever since its introduction, the term became part of the daily lexicon of Tyra and her minions. The art of smizing is epitomized by the legendary Super Smize.


  1. That is one seriously cute baby! And she smizes VERY well.

  2. The newborn’s first tooth is starting to poke through their gums many parents are unaware of the best dental hygiene practices for infants.


Don't be shy.
