Thank you to everyone who contacted me after yesterday’s post, I’m a little shy now about what to write about… hmmm do I post that BBQ tequila-shrimp pizza recipe I’ve been sitting on all week?

Okay to break the ice, here’s Stella. I figured out today that I can post iPhone videos directly to Youtube, which is, as you can guess, not necessarily a good thing. “Look my daughter is ah-mazing! She’s, um, sitting there, but very cutely!”

This video however is my husband making Stella laugh at his very terrible (and probably incredibly offensive) British accent (and for that we’re sorry):

For what it’s worth I do feel a little better, although I know I have to keep at it. I ate so well yesterday, it was awesome. I drank 10 glasses of water. I played in the sun with my son and let him drench me with the hose (and I surprised him by jumping in the kiddie pool fully-clothed, which delighted him to no end). So life is good, even though I’ve been sort of overwhelmed with two babies.

Since this is not a real post, here’s some links for your weekend reading pleasure (these are all really good):
