Sadie's Birth

Sadie Belle Burris was born on July 7, 2008 at 6:30 in the morning. (Weight: 6 lbs. 2 oz. Height: 18") Mom's first words on seeing her held up were "I love my baby!". Dad was too much in shock to say much of anything. (He has since regained his sense of speech.)

Sadie Belle Burris turns 2!

With much fanfare (and a few tears on all of our parts), Sadie Belle Burris turned 2 years old on July 7th, 2010. We had her party at the container port in Oakland. Sadie loves that place, and particularly the giant cranes. Her friends Zoe, Viv, Stella, Theo, Eloise, Amelia, Shifa, Sakina, Madeliene, Christopher and Evan were in attendance. Some grown-ups too, but who cares about them. Many papusas were eaten. After a couple of hours, the party broke up due to impending nap times.
