Cohen's 1st b-day party was Saturday afternoon. I was exhausted from staying up to read Deathly Hallows, but still thought it was very important to attend, so I went for about an hour. Cohen actually let me carry him, but he was covered with water and dirt (it was an outside pool party) so I got all wet and gross. Oh well, small price to pay. I also got bitten up a whole bunch by ants. Ouch. I only hope the kids there didn't suffer the same fate. Sabrina did a great job with the decorations and such, and it was neat to be at a little kid's birthday party. It made me think back to Deborah's FOUR 1 year old parties, all of which were insane amounts of fun. Seriously.
Candi (thebohomama) should be a mommy by now, but I have no news. So, since I assume it's happened, CONGRATULATIONS, CANDI!
And speaking of babies, and of things named Candy, I am getting a new cell phone in September. I think the Samsung a990. It's ugly, but it's got a 3.2 megapixel camera. That's like three times better than my first real digital camera. It's good enough that I won't have to apologize about the quality of my pictures, and good enough that I won't feel guilty about not carrying around my actual current digital camera.
