Quick Update

Oh, hello! Do you know what? It's possible to use "computers" in "other people's houses" to "post blog posts"! Isn't that WILD?

I've been using my cell phone to use Twitter occasionally to send little updates (the Twitter box is somewhere in the righthand margin), but GEEZ that's time consuming and my thumbs aren't yet good at it, so it's all, "I......a.....m.....FORGET IT."

The quick update is that I am having a WONDERFUL TIME, and Niestle is THE CUTEST EVER and The Place Where They Live (I never know how careful to be with info, do you?) is TERRIFIC and I want to MOVE HERE and play with Niestle all day and hang out with my brother and sister-in-law so much they start to wonder when I will go HOME! This is just the best vacation ever and I love it, and my flight here couldn't have gone better (unless they had FED US, but luckily I'd packed lots of yum snacks), and I've been sleeping luxuriously, and they have been buying me treats left and right (ice cream cone from a cool ice cream place that had flavors like "Honey Lavender"! fun meal with all the dishes named after the cities they came from! a truffle cake for after dinner tonight!), and we have been watching 30 Rock which is hilarious, and I have been snuggling and snorfling and squeezing babies like crazy, and it was a totally good decision to come here, and let me see if I can find a picture. I'm using my brother's computer so I have to snoop around a little and hope I don't come upon anything Embarrassing. ...Okay, here we go, here's a picture he took of me and Niestle:


I have of course bitten off all those delicious little toes by now, so it's good he documented them before they were gone.

Oh! I love baby toes. It's a genetic trait, I think. All the women in my family immediately de-sock babies to admire their perfect, peggy toes.

Enjoy your trip!

Ooh, Honey Lavender. There's a wonderful ice cream here in that flavor, but I prefer the lemon custard.

I'm dying to know how your family is faring without you at home.

I love how this picture is all Swistle: I love this baby's TOES! I want to EAT them or at least take them HOME with me! And Niestle's all Mom?! mom!? Who invited this person, anyway? Can I have some milk, now?

Jewels said...

Nieces are so nummy! Aww!

amber said...

SO CUTE! You should have left some toes for the rest of us! (But I completely understand - there's only ten, and he's SOOOO cute!)

awww!

nicole said...

That is a super cute baby and picture.

Word verification: 'bloger' which is perfect b/c I am lacking in the blogger department lately, so a missing 'g' seems appropriate.

Oh, baby toes, truffle cake and sleep...sounds like a perfect visit!

Misty said...

Oh, I love that picture. You look like you're in heaven. I am so glad you are having a nice trip. :)

SIL Anna said...

Though the baby was having fun playing with us this morning, I swear she was distracted, wondering where her FUN AUNTIE had gone! I read her one of the books you brought to remind her of you. I wish you lived here!

Callie said...

Oh my goodness - how cute is she???

Love the little toesies.

Glad you're having a good time. Sounds like a fabulous vacation.
