My father-in-law sent me this fun Frida Kahlo fake tattoo. (On a side note I despise Frida Kahlo. She and her husband, Diego Rivera, were adulterous and full of ugly ideas. Unfortunately, some people see a similarity between Kahlos surrealist work and mine but I refuse to acknowledge it. I'm much more medieval.) ( I do like some of her imagery even if she was ridiculously self absorbed.)

On a different note, Renata is drawing all kinds of fascinating drawings. It is fun to see what influences her to draw. She saw an orange with a Halloween face drawn on it with marker as if it had been carved. So she did a drawing of oranges with all kinds of different faces on them . they were wearing lipstick , of course.

Georgie is fascinated with shoes. Everyones' shoes but his own and always on the wrong feet. Here is a fun picture.
Joffre jr. has discovered the fun of taking your shirt and putting the neck on the top of your head. I can't think of how else to describe this but it is funny.

Ward is big and cute. Smiling a little and charming me with his dimple. He also likes to smack his lips after nursing .

Here are some pictures I finally got off my camera. Ward is now 4 weeks old and he is 13lbs, the little maniac. He is BIG. So far he's pretty good too, not too fussy. His favorite fussy time is 11pm-2am which stinks but seems to be getting better.
The pictures of Ward in brown are from his baptism. I kept getting a great shot of him and Joffre then as I would take the picture he would cry. 3 times. So I put up the crying one anyway.

Women on Waves

This article amazed me because of the audacity of the Dutch but it is really sad that the Spanish seem interested in liberalizing their laws anyway.
