Mother's Day: Pictures with My Family

It's Mother's Day today!

I'm sharing some family pictures. The first one was taken in New York. The second was our first family picture.

I'm also sharing this link about "Pregnancy May Change Mom's Brain for Good" - excerpt follows:

"It's 'extremely likely' that pregnancy permanently alters the human brain. The hormone flood that occurs during pregnancy dwarfs the hormonal changes that occur during other volatile times of life, such as adolescence, Glynn wrote. Just as teen hormones permanently alter brain structure and function, she said, it's likely pregnancy hormones do, too.
"Some of the brain changes during pregnancy may help mothers become more attuned to their infant when it is born, Glynn suggests. Fetal movements that tickle a woman's unconscious might prepare her to bond with her infant, for example. Likewise, changes in brain areas associated with emotion and memory could prime women for caregiving.

"She said, 'There may be a cost' — such as the perpetual fuzziness of "pregnancy brain" — "but the benefit is a more sensitive, effective mother."

The picture above was taken Christmas time. The one below was also taken at home. Note Andrew covering his eyes. When he was a child, he didn't like having his picture taken and we were in many vacations where he didn't have his picture at all. I've forgotten why I wore a malong in this picture.

This was taken in Puerto Vallarta, Mexico when we were on holiday. We stayed with other family members at a luxurious place called Villa Tres Vidas. It was laughably sumptuous. It was a four level villa cascading down to the sea. We had our own cook and houshold help. There were hot tubs in each level. Needless to say, we had a great time.

And four more! Watch us age and multiply!

Happy Mother's Day to all the mothers out there!
