I Have a Name

The first days of my visit to Portland have been devoted to adjustments. Not only does Michele have to get used to having her mom here but mom has to adjust to being in close quarters with her first ex and his girlfriend. Of course, the greatest indicator of acceptance is Lilu- to whom "Tutu" has been a phantom voice on the phone.

Yesterday was spent making proactive adjustments. Having tea with Kelena and Espree; getting to know Espree individually; taking Lilu out for a long walk with Kelena and then observing and interacting with Lilu while mommy is running errands in town.

All was successful and the harmony that settled in led to an afternoon of interaction with Lilu who now let's me change her diaper, give her a bath, feed her off my plate and play with her. And she calls me by name. Tutu.

Hi Liz!

If you are happy, I am happy!

Bought an Acer Aspire netbook at Costco last night. Cool toy! Will be great to take to Hong Kong. A desktop computer is easier to type on, though.
