What's happening?

Jeongmin's 6 month birthday party.

I'm feeling like me again these days.  I will reflect on this at a later time, but a lot of stuff has happened in the last few weeks that has really made me feel like I've arrived in my life in America.  That's right--it took two years.  That's a lot of culture shock.

Baby swim lessons at the pool.

 My son has really grown into quite a distinct person.  He has his own sense of humor and temperament.  He learned to crawl this week and now there is just no stopping him.

Days Like This...

All around us is blue.  Sky, water, clouds.  The tall ships have finished their voyage up the channel.  Min Gi naps on the side of the boat.  The wind whips through the sails.  Michelle and I are talking about something related to teaching or hiking or something.  Dad is sitting in the catbird seat, staring out onto the bay.

Jeongmin, nestled against my chest in the baby carrier, wakes up.  He looks up at me with the confusion of sleep still knotting his brow.  He smiles at the recognition.  Then the wind whistles through his hair and across his cheeks.  Shock.  Then, giggles.  Giggles and squirming.  And the rest of us giggle back.

I could stay like that for awhile.
