Diversion: So you think your professor can dance?

Explanation: A yearly event put on by UVa's Ballroom Club.  An actual dancer (here, Nina), tries to get a chaotic dancer (here, Brian) to do an actual dance routine.  Not the winning number, but fun nonetheless.

Hand Surgery

Haven had surgery on her left thumb today to remove an abnormal growth plate and correct an angulation in its growth.  She did great.  She was nervous but willing to do each step.  She was at the center at 6am, in surgery at 8am, and released by 11am.  Movies, good food, and pain medication have been her afternoon.  She'll be in a full arm cast for a few weeks (full arm so that she doesn't remove it), and then in a splint for awhile longer.  August she will probably have a second surgery on her right thumb, following up on the first a year and a half ago.

Quote of the Day

This morning as Haven was undressing...

"I have to take my pajamas off to get ready for my adventures.  I nudey nudey."

we had planned to stop letting her out once she turned 13, but we're now thinking 8.

Final Stretch...

This picture was taken last week - just a month until the due date for the baby's arrival.  Haven is getting excited, tho' doesn't understand how much her world is about to change!
