REAL Alexander pics

Jeff and I just got back from our visit to Wasaga Beach with Ruth, Sara and and pics tomorrow! I'll also be wandering down with my digital camera to Front Street (3 minute walk away) tomorrow morning to check out Toronto's 2008 Olympic Bid Announcement Street Party. Everyone I know in Toronto predicts that Beijing will get the Olympics in 2008. If they're right (and I suspect they are), the festivities will be winding down VERY fast...but hey, they're offering free pancakes. :-)

Many thanks to Phil for sending me these photos of Alexander so I can replace the rather feeble ones from the last Blathering.

For those interested in discussing babystuff and parentingstuff, by the way, I have set up a Babytalk discussion forum for those interested. I know some of you are already members of private lists, but this forum is open to anyone who may be interested. Even though I'm not a parent and have no interest in becoming a parent, I do confess that I actually am interested in what's going on in babyland (I know there are quite a few new parents out there).

Feel free to suggest a daily poll question.

Today's Poll:

Have you ever been in the labour room watching a baby being born? (yes, giving birth to one does count)
