Special Day

Thanks to Gary for posting about Aidan's arrival for me. It has been a crazy and wonderful week. Today, Aidan is one week old and I am 33 years old. Hard to believe. We are settling in so I won't be posting consistently but I promise I'll be back to posting soon! Thank you for all of your well wishes and kind thoughts. You are all the greatest!!!

He's Here!

Aidan Gaetano Fusco was born a healthy baby boy at 2:30 this afternoon. Mom sounded great when I spoke to her on the phone this evening, though she had not really slept since night before last. Aidan has a strong set of pipes and I could hear him crying loud and clear in the background. He weighs in at a whopping 9 lbs. 2 oz. (and he was two weeks early!) and is 22 inches long. Mom, Dad, and Grandmother are happy and well.

Congratulations Amy and Gary!

Eight Belles Tragedy

I don't know much about horses or horse racing. But I love watching horses run. They are such beautiful creatures. Not far from my house, there is a field that always has two horses in it. I look for those horses every time I drive by. They are so lovely.

I have always thought it would be fun to go to the Kentucky Derby. To put on a fun hat and watch those wonderful horses run. In Northern California, we have some horse racing at our local fair and we often go and watch them run. Gary has even won some money on the horsies. After this weekend's Derby however, I'm starting to rethink horse-racing.

I'm so glad I wasn't watching the race because with my current level of hormones and my sensitivity where animals are concerned, I would have been a wreck. The loss of Eight Belles is just heart-breaking. I just read this article and it is making me question my views of horse-racing. If I am against dog-fighting and greyhound-racing, why am I not opposed to horse-racing? In light of the recent tragedy, I'm going to have to give this some thought.
