I have a few housekeeping issues:
If you received a birth announcement, then you also probably received a blatant advertisement for Seatsleaf. Yes, I exploited my baby to get more followers for my blog. I know that the birth of Isla has brought about a spike in followers. At one point I actually had to guilt-trip my mother-in-law and BFF Jenny to check into my blog. But, now that there's a baby... well, I'm not bitter. I would just like to take this opportunity to thank those of you who expressed enough interest in my life to occasionally check into Seatsleaf before it's content included cute baby eye-candy (love you, Mom). You have a special place in my heart.
Speaking of cute baby eye-candy:
By the way, I love all the positive feedback I receive. Apparently, "Not Napping" was a good one. I never know who, or how many people check my blog, so it's always a thrill to hear from you. Comments are encouraged, don't be shy.
If you have not received a birth announcement, and would like one, I would love to send you one. Please email Jason or I your address.
You may have also received an advertisement for Jason's photos on Flickr. I just want to remind you that the Flickr account is Jason's. And, if he does not update it for several weeks, and you crave new Isla photos, please direct your hate mail to Jason- not to me!
Jason informed me that some of you may have been mislead about his photography talent. On the Flickr account, he posted the pictures from the professional photo shoot that was taken on day 5 of Isla's life. Those photos are credited to a talented photographer here in San An, Nikki Loehr, of Moxi Photostudio. We are doing a "growing series" and she'll have a photo shoot at newborn (done), 4 mo, 8 mo, and 1 year. We bought the rights to the photos so we can post them on Flickr, and we and anyone else can print copies.
If you still can't get enough of baby Isla, friend us on Facebook. If you haven't joined Facebook, it's inevitable that you and everyone else on Earth eventually will, so you might as well do it now. Jason informed me that if everyone on Facebook resided in a country together, that would be the 3rd largest country in the world- bigger than the US!
Also, This is blog post #76, and I just want to send a reminder out that Jason promised to be my guest blogger for the #100th blog of Seatsleaf... and it's only 24 blogposts away!
