On Saturday, Michelle and I purchased a “Baby Tenda Safe Feeding Table. Yeah, I realize they haven’t taken a new marketing photo since 1982, but we attended a demonstration of this product on Saturday (cleverly disguised as a “Baby Safety” seminar) and we were instantly sold. And apparently Doogie Howser was raised in this table, so I see good things in our baby’s future.
Last night, Michelle helped me hang art at a soon-to-be-opening-its-doors coffee shop called Crema. Rachel and Ben are simply amazing people and they’ve picked a fantastic up-and-coming location to start this phase of their lives. One thing that’s especially exciting for me is that this will officially be my very first “solo” show. Group shows have been terrific, and there will be many more of those in the future. But being the only person showing art under one roof is a little intimidating. I’m very happy with how it turned out though, and I am very honored to be Crema’s very first artist. We hung 11 pieces (8 of which are brand new) and I think they complement the space nicely. The shop opens Jan. 28th, and look for an art opening/reception/party sometime in mid-February.
And finally, one of the most exciting things in my life will be happening tomorrow morning … our 20-week ultrasound is scheduled and we’ll find out if we’re having a He or a She. We’re pretty sure it’s going to be a human baby, although a monkey, dolphin, or fluffy pony will also be acceptable, and perhaps intriguing. Our moms are coming with us, which we are super-excited about. I think it’ll be a great bonding experience. I hope they give us one of those 3D/4D ultrasounds. I get why they’re called 3D, but is 4D just referring to the fact that it’s a video? Because the 3rd dimension is depth and the 4th is time … if that’s the case, then wouldn’t one of those black and white ones that don’t show depth still be 3 dimensions since it shows time too? Why don’t they ask me to approve these labels before just unleashing them onto an unsuspecting pregnant population? Is there even the slightest chance that I know what I’m talking about this morning?
