yeah, 5

i’m not sure what words could add to the smile of the birthday girl herself. personally for the past few weeks i’ve just been marveling at how much you’ve grown. you’re body’s getting taller, your thoughts and emotions are maturing. and even though to me you’ll always be my little girl, i think you’re gonna make a great BIG girl. 🙂

i love you Julia, happy birthday!!

absolutely full of joy…

7 years old

for those of you who may not know, the now ubiquitous white earbuds and the iPods attached to them had a birthday this past week. yes, it was Oct. 23rd, 2001 that the iPod as first introduced to the world. the first video is a promo video made by apple about that first iPod. (iPhone link: Original iPod Introduction)

… it’s remarkable to me just how far we’ve come in the last 7 years. now with my iPhone 3G, i have all the innovations of the original iPhone plus the new App Store with thousands of programs from games to social networking to productivity software. it’s just so awesome!

… you’ll notice that neither the phone or the email app made it to the dock at the bottom. i simply use the camera and twitterific more often. do you not have an iPhone?
