Online Portfolio

I decided I needed a more professional online portfolio to send to people interested in my work, rather than making them wade through the oddities and scrap pieces in my DeviantArt account.  Here is me trying to find quality pieces to display on my website:
So, ta da!  Here is Emily's Desk, my online portfolio.  I am currently open for commissions and am happy to discuss projects and pricing with you.

When we first brought Lucy home, she started sleeping up to eight hours at a time by her two-month birthday.  Alas, it was not to last.  In the last month, those increments have gotten smaller and smaller.  We reached a point last week where she was nursing just about every two hours around the clock.  This accompanied by her watching us as we eat, being able to sit up in her high chair, and having two little teeth buds made us deem her ready for solid foods.  We skipped the infant cereals since she's been 100% breastfed and got her started with some avocado.

The process was, predictably, messy and mostly futile.  Very little actually got down the hatch, but she did like chewing on the spoon.  So in the meantime we're just letting her get used to sitting down with us as we eat with a spoon and sippy cup, which usually end up multiple times on the floor.
