Hi all,

No blog updates or email responses until next week -- we're on vacation!

And by 'we' I mean me, husband, baby, mother, sister, Nana, and draft of the new book.

"Can I read it?" asked my mother.

I told her Yes, then offered my standard disclaimer. "There's a lot of sex in it."

Nana frowned. "Sex? I thought it was a book about babies!"

"Well, how do you think people get babies?" was my response.

Nana did not seem amused.

Other than that, Lucy's tooth is for real -- a little white nubbin in the middle of her lower gumline -- and I'm spending lots of time putting her in her cute little swimsuits, slathering her in sunblock and floating her around the pool.

More next week.....
