I've been meaning to write, just haven't had time! I figured now was a good time- at 3 am. I am up because starting at 2, Sofia has been awake. From 2-3 I kept going back to bed, now I'm going to stay awake a little just to make sure she is asleep this time.

Last Tuesday was the election! How exciting! I am so glad Obama won. I have a new hope for this country and the country's future. I believe Obama is the leader we need right now. As for Palin, as much as I don't like her, the McCain campaign is really blaming everything on her, and that's not fair. The latest is that they are blaming her- only her- for the hate that was incited at rallies. I'm sorry but it wasn't just her. McCain was at some rallies too, and he did not speak up. Advisors were at the rallies, and nobody told her to stop. They are all to blame.

I am very disappointed in my state though. California passed Proposition 8, which will amend the constitution, defining marriage as between a man and a woman. Thankfully, they have already filed a lawsuit against it. I don't think you can amend the constitution to take away rights. Hopefully it will get over turned. This proposition is all about hate. The people who voted for it may not agree with same sex marriage, but why are they pushing their beliefs on everyone else? Many conservatives don't want others' beliefs pushed onto them, so why do they frequently do it to others? It's not hurting anyone, it's not interfering with your life. Makes me so angry.

Maya is crawling all over now! I need to post a video of it. Also, she has been pulling herself up to kneeling and today pulled herself to standing! We need to really get on the babyproofing!

I am super tired, and I think the coast may be clear so I can go to sleep. Goodnight.

Ugh...I give you credit for wanting to post at that hour! Agreed about the election and blaming Palin...I think McCain could have made a wiser choice, but don't use her as a scapegoat! Can't wait to see the crawling video...have a good week!
