Hannah's First Year

Sure, she's now 14 months and this is a bit late, but better late than never, right?

Hannah's first Birthday

Well, our little baby has turned one year old. She's learned to walk on her own, talk a bit (mom and dad in Korean), and made some neighbor friends. We haven't dropped her, forgot her, or fed her anything realy bad... so I I'm guessing there's still moreexcitement to come.

On Saturday, we went out to the 'burbs and had a bit of a family lunch for Hannah. It was good to see everyone together, and it gave me a good chance to practice with my new camera.

The restaruant we went to was really nice (even if the food wasn't). It had a great outdoor area behind it for taking pictures and such.

Hannah's grandparents always enjoy trying to make her more girlish. hahahaha

And here's her first birthday cake.
And all the girls in the family.
In korea, the first birthday is often quite grand and formal. One of my friends spent nearly $10,000 on theirs. I'm not too keen on that. Not only do I not want to spend the money, but I'd rather make the party more enjoyable for the baby.

Hannah's expression here is great. She shows that it's not only me that wants to rebel against old customs. lol

My trip to Canada (2008)

Well, we're back after spending two weeks in the Great White North. It was fun and great to see people, but a tough trip to make with a 10 month old.

I got a new Camera (Sony A200) at the Duty Free, so these pics hsould be a bit better than my old ones.

Vancouver was nice, but a bit chilly for us.

We were able to visit with a lot of my relatives though, and see a little bit of what life in Van would/could be like.

It was good to see everyone, but most of all, I was glad that Hannah got to meet her Greatgrandparents.
A nice shot of some of the family here - I wish we could of had one with everyone present.

Calgary was nice and sunny for the time we were there. Joo was surprised that it could be SOOO warmwith snow still on the ground - I told her, that's just how Calgary is... odd.
Hannah was a bit "off" with my Mom at first (due in large part to my Mom's face being swollen from the medication), but towards the end she warmed up a bit.

This is one of my favorite pics from the trip.

I'm not going to load every picture up here because I'm being lazy and still dealing with jet-lag, but it was great to see everyone again, and of course... it was great to do all that shopping.

I'm not American.
I've been to the States a number of times and have been privy to their media for the great majority of my life. I've always felt that in the world, Americans were a nationality I could relate to.
For years they stood on the right side. Through many wars, they took the high road and led by example. Although not always perfect, they were a country to be looked up to both for ingenuity and civil freedom.
In the past years though, my image of America has started to slide away. No, I'm not saying that they've now fallen into some type of hellish pit - nothing so biblical, what I am saying is this: something is wrong.
America is now rolling back its civil liberties. America has waffled on the nuances of what is and what isn't torture. America has become a symbol of hypocrisy instead of freedom.
America is in a war that it entered into under false pretenses... and now, as of a few days ago, 4000 young American servicemen have given their lives.
I hope that sometime soon, America will step back up to its rightful place in the world... a moral leader.

Wow, time flies!

So, I'm looking at this page and realized that it's been MONTHS since I've updated anything.

For the very few who actually visit here, you have my apologies. I really should post more, but I find myself loading pics up on Facebook instead of here (its interface is just a little more user friendly).

Either way, I'll just say, all is well here in korea. Spring is coming and Hannah is growing fast (both up and out). She's 8 1/2 months now and able to walk by holding on to something. We're hoping that in a few more months (when we're planning on going to Canada), that she'll be able to walk on her own.

Here's a fairly recent pic:
And here's one of us at Christmas...
