No applause, just send chocolate

Something possessed me to double check today, and it turns out that tomorrow is the two-year anniversary of my very first post, which consisted of this photo:

It's still one of my favorites. If I recall correctly, it was the last one I took (of about a dozen), back in the dark ages when you couldn't see your pictures until you downloaded them, and the camera only held about 15 at a time.

I remember that I was getting frustrated, the girls were sick of sitting still, and the hats had to be adjusted continually. But somehow I managed to come up with something silly to say and got that one last shot.

My intent was to use it for a Dear Friends holiday E-mail, which of course I never did. Then I discovered this new "Blog" thing that people were doing. I decided to give it a try, and the picture got the attention it deserved after all.

So. Happy anniversary to me! Dark chocolate please, no nuts.

(You may have noticed that my archives don't, in fact, start two years ago tomorrow, but actually show a couple of posts from 2000. I had this idea, see, that I could go back through old E-mails in my "Sent" folder [I never delete anything] and retroactively turn them into posts from when Robin was a baby. I only ended up doing two of them, but that's what that is. Maybe someday I'll add some more.)

Felicitations! Gratuliere! Congrats!
What a lovely picture of your daughters. They were and are two beautiful girls.

I'm about to celebrate my one year of bloggery, so I'm a mere cooing baby in comparison to your two-year seniority.

Yeah, hard to remember back to the time when cameras didn't belong to the instant gratification group. :)

Happy Anniversary to you!

Yay! Happy Anniversary to you!
*throwing confetti and dark chocolate* (Watch your head.)

I just passed the one year mark on my blog. It seems like it's gone really fast.
