Fifty percent

This last weekend, we took Genevieve out to her first Stitches West.

I was thinking about this picture, and what I kept coming back to is that half of me came from Mom, and that Genevieve is half me. It completely blows my mind.

Speaking of Mom, check out what a great job she did on my hair! After a lot of discussion about parenting and identity, Mom facilitated the re-pinking. It's stupid and superficial, but I just didn't feel like myself as a brunette.

After Mom did the bleach and color on my hair, we went to get it cut, and Suzy the Stylist declared that I looked like myself again, too. Nothing like a Mom to make sure you don't lose yourself, right?

Stitches was fun; it was a completely different experience with Genevieve. We did a lot more sitting and a lot less partying, but you know what? It was a much more restful weekend. And we can always party when she's older.

What I *will* say is that she LOVED staring at all the colors. She can't help it; it's in her genes.

  11. Glad to see you back to pink, Jasmin! It kind of amazes me that someone can go through something as life-changing as making another human being and come out of it as the exact same awesome person.

    Also, as someone roughly in your age group and surrounded by people reproducing NOTHING has given me baby fever except seeing your photos of Genevieve, and I love her name.

  12. What an awesome family pic! And I love the return of the pink hair, it's not stupid, it's fun! Besides, since mine is streaked purple, I admit to being slightly biased...
