Solly, the American

Solly has made a few important developments as an American. He has a Social Security number, a bank account, and he voted with me last week!

We hosted a party to watch the returns. Despite my poor self-framing, we're wearing matching Obamamama and Obamababy shirts!

Solly has also seen another country--Canada! He came with me to the Western Society of Naturalists conference in Vancouver BC. He stayed in his first hotel.

Visiting Granville Island in Vancouver.

In other news, the gifts have arrived from NY. We will get to Thank Yous... someday... but we're touched by the generosity and good wishes we have received from around the world.

Winter is finally, sadly, upon us, and Solly is getting to know what it means to live in the Pacific Northwest at this time of year. He's getting better about bundling up.

Husky pride!

Solly and Peter made me a birthday cake tonight. Babaloo signed the cake too, but Peter assures me there is no doggy slobber in or on it.
