My little man

I profusely apologize for not posting recently. It is hard to type proficiently with one hand when you are holding, feeding, nursing a baby in the other. People claim they do it all the time but I am not so sure.

Graduate classes started last week as well so I am also scrambling to find time to do my readings and homework. I cannot wait to finish all my courses...with a little luck I will be student teaching in the fall - yay!!!

I encourage you all to visit my SIL's blog to see some super cute pics of Simon and Sofia. They are on their way to becoming best friends :)

I leave you with a pic of my cutie pie at rest...

Cocco e Drilli

First off, Happy 2009 to all my friends and family that read my blog. I appologize for the lack of posts but my life consists of nursing, changing and burping Simon - all on repeat - and sleeping a few hours at a time when I can.

When I am awake and online I have been looking for songs to sing to Simon and I came across absolute FAVORITE Italian childrens song from 1974's Zecchino D'Oro competition. can find ANYTHING on the internet...isn't technology wonderful?!?!?. I had the 45 of this and played it constantly as a little I can sing it to my son and how awesome is the original footage from the show...seriously...cuteness is to follow. To those of you that do not speak Italian, this song is about 2 crocodiles Cocco and Drilli who are in love. One day a hunter captures Drilli (who is slower and cannot outrun the hunter) and wants to make her into a purse and a "beauty case." Cocco rallies all the other crocodiles to save his precious Drilli. Cocco is successful and he and his Drilli live happily ever after.
