Sadie has graduated to a real cup

Monday, March 31st, 2008

No more sippy cups at meals!

Sadie is now drinking from the big-girl cup

So far, we’ve only had a couple of spills. I’m glad we have lots of rags in the kitchen.

Have you signed away your right to sue?
Yet another article about how mandatory-arbitration clauses are bad, this time in employment law.

Be it ever so illogical — drop the price of your home, already
We’re not looking to sell our house for a couple of years, at least. I hope that when we do, we’ll be able to accept reality, and price our house to the market.

Do open houses sell houses?
Shill! I really like our Real Estate blog. This entry is on open houses. It’s fun to watch people fighting in the comments.

Should it be free?
Outstanding article on whether software should be free or not. Even if you’re not in the industry, you should read this.

Sadie’s Easter

Sunday, March 23rd, 2008

It’s been a long time since I’ve been able to post about Sadie. We’ve had tons going on, but I want to take a quick break to tell you all how she’s doing.

Sadie is incredibly active, running around the house until she’s nothing more than a blur.

She loves sitting in the living room, where the sun comes in and make her hair all glowy. She likes that.

She loves coloring at her table. She’s graduated from sheets of paper to coloring books. Art school, here we come!

We spent some time yesterday coloring Easter eggs. We have to start with a nice snack first, though. Everyone likes the milk.

While you’re waiting for the eggs to color, it’s fun to play with the basket.

Easter morning: It’s time to search for the eggs. Found one!

So much fun. Sadie ended up with a full basket of eggs. She didn’t like the jellybeans, though.

Baby should be coming in the next ten days or so, so I suspect there’ll be lots more pictures coming soon.
