Okay Folks, Here it is.

Finally, we have a date for the Discovery Channel special on cancer. I am in it. I think I will be there for the town meet portion of it, too. I hope so. It should work out well because we are going to be in Philadelphia the day before for our neice's, Celeste, wedding. I think I am excited to share this with you!

Baby photos next time. Liam is growing! Not only has he officially passed the 6 pound mark, but he looks bigger to me, too! Mara and Mark found some smaller clothes that fit better, so he looks a little less lost in his clothes. He still tends to have a shoulder poking through his neck hole, but he is filling out. Poor baby (anyone remember Mara's babydoll by that name? We called her that because she never had any clothes on at all!) has two modes -- asleep and crying. He can do both at once, but he is always doing either one or the other. Don't get me wrong, I love this baby. But I think we will all feel better once he figures this world out. As I recall, the first six weeks are the toughest. Hang in there, Liam. It just gets better.


I saw the advertisement on DSC yesterday afternoon, and was wondering if that was the episode. Of course, there were no segment trailers on the ad, so I wasn't positive, so thanks for the heads up!

And then puberty hits right when you think you've got it all figured out and you begin to realize how erroneous that belief was but don't want to admit to the world that you were so wrong that you're ashamed of your former, present, and possibly future self. Don't worry, Liam, it gets better after that, too.

Liam proved me wrong last night. Mara fed him and handed him to me to burp him while she got ready for bed. It was 10pm and we were all heading for bed. Except Liam. He was on my shoulder, looking out at the world with wide eyes, pushing himself up. He was wide awake and quite content. I'm looking forward to more of the same, but earlier in the day.

I just sent this comment on an old posting and wasn't sure if you would see it....so here it is again (just in case):

Hi Stephanie, I'm glad to hear that you are feeling better. I saw you on the Ted Koppel special and thought I would check out your blog. You may not remember me, but I took one of your classes about starting your own business. At the end I decided that a business just wasn't for me. After the class was over, you called me and gave me some information about a pottery studio that some prior students were opening (Spirit of Clay). I just wanted to tell you that you never really know how much impact you have on another person. That phone call that you made introduced me to the most wonderful (and much needed) art therapy. My troubles pale in comparison to the cancer that you have been dealing with, but my life is much happier now that I have a creative outlet. Thank you for taking the time! - Sharon

Good to hear from you. Thank you. Your comment made my day.
