Grannies, Hair, & Chemo!

My nephew is the cutest little baby! Look at all of his fuzzy hair! Here are my parents, now officially Granny and Gramppy!

A really sweet thought came to me... Our first baby was due within days of Baby E. I just know that he knew our little baby. I don't know why, but I feel like they were little buddies. Every time I see him, I think of our little baby that we lost and am glad that s/he had such a cute little friend to play with up there :)

Speaking of babies...

I had chemo yesterday... I am down to 347 for my hcg level. That is REALLY good (down from 1,500 the previous week and 68,000 a month ago... getting closer below 5). Once I am below 5, no more chemo and 6 months to wait until we try again! So probably June :)

I feel so grown up! The English department at the school where I teach was sent to Boston for a conference. So, here I am! We haven't seen much, but I wanted to post a few cool things in the city. (By the way, it is FREEZING!!!!)There is a very cool Holocaust landmark right in the middle of one of the streets. This quote was engraved on the wall.
This is Paul Revere's house! Supposedly, he didn't really warn about the British coming... but he did go for a horse ride.

The city is so beautiful in its own quaint, historic way.

Another homage to Paul Revere... Kristy, Lisa, and I.

Mike's Pastries... The biggest, most delicious eclair I have ever tasted!
