I feel like I just posted a 4 month update. I'd like to take some now & then pictures but that will have to wait for another day. This is the only recent picture of Dio I have. He loves the potty. He doesn't spend all that much time on it, since he always goes right away, but whenever he's on he kicks his feet and grabs things and looks at himself in the mirror.
Today went by in a blur. We bought produce at the farmer's market today (6 small cantaloupes, 1 watermelon, 3 zucchini muffins, 2 zucchini, 1 butternut squash, 1 small bottle of apple cider, for a total of $10), stopped at the post office and pharmacy, and ran into several people we knew on the way home--it's a small town, so that happens all the time. After lunch I got Dio down for a nap, then had to run off to play my violin in a wedding. It was held on the grounds of a historic mansion that's right near downtown. The morning started off cool and misty, but the sun came out and turned out to be a gorgeous day for a wedding. I played "Meditation" by Thais for the sand ceremony and "Traumerei" by Schumann for the marching down the aisle part (well, except we were outside and there wasn't really an aisle...) and lots of Bach and other such music for the prelude and postlude. Nothing terribly fancy, but we had to make do since we were outside and didn't have a real piano or good acoustics. Then we all went to the wedding dinner and reception the rest of the afternoon. Zari danced her heart out for much of the time. It was, in Eric's words, a "toddler mosh pit."
