it was pretty much all stella, all the time, because...just look at that face. she is such a cutie pie. below, stella in handcuffs (courtesy of her father. don't worry, she's a baby houdini).
saturday turned out to be a gorgeous, if chilly, day. we walked around the old port, and my bruddy got to try the coffee at both arabica and bard. he also bought us a huge box of standard baking treats, perhaps his favorite portland edibles.
my theory: one day, every american will come with his or her own iphone. kind of like a social security number.
saturday night we had a big pizza party at eva and nathan's house. emily and family were there, and their sister abby was in town with her husband joel. i can't adequately describe the connection between our families, but it goes back years and years, and i find it pretty magical that eva and emily and i all ended up in maine. abby and david were best friends in elementary school. now there are a bunch of offspring, too.
so, much of the evening consisted of a blur of babies (below, stella is still and esme runs by in the background).
then the clothes came off and the babies got really crazy. i tried in vain to capture it on film. doesn't it look like esme is doing some strange tribal dance?
babies, and their admirers.
i miss that girl and her parents already - only two months til christmas!
