Update from Irene-world

Annika is 12 weeks old today, which is arguably the same as 3 months... except if she was born on April 6th, shouldn't her 3-month "birthday" be July 6th? Unsolved mysteries.

She has a blog:

We started it at the suggestion of Gloria, Vlad's cousin, who thought it would be nice if there was an easy way to keep up-to-date on what she is doing, and see photos of her.

Speaking of photos, yesterday I bought a new camera. I wanted something more portable and user-friendly than Vlad's cameras, which each weigh approximately a ton. So now I have a fancy new toy for taking pictures of Annika, and whatever else strikes my fancy. But mainly, it's for pictures of Annika; before she arrived, I didn't have much interest in taking photos.

We're off to Oregon in a few days, to visit family for the 4th of July weekend. Annika will get her first plane ride, and get to meet more people who will make a big fuss over her. She's getting to be quite the social butterfly, so I think she will enjoy it.

I didn't add Annika's blog to the blog roll-- not sure how you feel about general gawking, but she is adorable and you are more than welcome to!
