Forward facing at last! Samuel loved riding in the car today, because he could see where we were going as well as see what Mommy & Daddy were up to in the front seat. Technically, we should have waited another four weeks before switching his seat, but he is such a big boy, that his feet were starting to get scrunched up against the back of the rear seat, and that was a safety issue, so we went ahead and switched his seat to forward facing a month early. He loves it!

Today, we celebrated my 29th birthday a couple of days late in McMinnville with my family. It was a lot of fun, and I received a lot of nice gifts, including a $20 gift card to Starbucks! I got lots of blouses, sweaters, a necklace, earrings. It was a really nice birthday party! My Mom had balloons & a cake as well, and it was a nice time with my family.

Samuel is tugging on his ears again, and was a little fussy in McMinnville, so I'm going to take him to the doctor tomorrow to have his ears checked once again. He just got over an cold/cough, so he very well may have developed an ear infection.

Another comment about Munich, which I absolutely love, if you didn't see my posting from yesterday:

Ebert writes in his review, "As a thriller, Munich is efficient, absorbing, effective. As an ethical argument, it is haunting. And its questions are not only for Israel but for any nation that believes it must compromise its values to defend them."

Ebert couldn't have summed up the film any better. I'm still thinking about the ethical arguments posited in the film. I'd love to see it again!

Aside from the ethical arguments and superb acting (Eric Bana is not only incredibly attractive--okay, hot--but an extremely talented actor, not to mention the rest of the cast, which is top-notch), the entire film was shot in the most amazing way. The shot angles, backgrounds, settings, fade-in/fade-out techniques, and overall editing was nothing short of the best.

If I didn't say so before, Munich is the best film I've seen since LOR--maybe even the best film of 2005! We'll see what happens at the Oscars, but I think it is going to be Munich this and Munich that! Well done, Spielberg!
