Modesty prevails and we close in on the finish line

Here's an update to the Jan 31st and Feb 16th posts. Slowly but surely I am managing to eke out enough time to finish up the final illustration asap. Most of this was done in airports, in the air, and at a Day's Inn in San Francisco where we stayed while visiting our new and unfathomably adorable 2-week old niece. Now I just need to finalize and clean it up. We are sooooo close to having the book out.
