:: :: bracaba :: ::

like many kids his age, i imagine, evan has certain words that mean different things in different contexts. "mimi" means mitten if we're getting dressed to go outside; it means music if we're near the radio. "muh muh" means both march and marshmallow.

until today, bracaba had just one meaning: broccoli bites. but now, it has taken on a new meaning for him. ask him, "who is the new president of the united states?" and he'll tell you: bracaba.

it sounds equally right in either context.

(p.s. this image is actually from the day we drove home, but i thought it seemed appropriate for today, too. what a day! woohoo!)

I love his face! It's like: "SWEET. This is gonna be an awesome year." And also: "Buh-bye, Bush. Check ya later." Dude, I miss your lovely little face with those beautiful chubby cheeks and that soft red hair. Stay warm and give lots of kisses to your mama!

P.S. Julie, I can't believe your old blog is gone! How does that happen? I'm in shock for you.
