I finally meet my new little niece on Saturday. To demonstrate just how long I've been waiting for Daniel and Erika to have a baby, I present the gift I've had for them ever since the summer of 2009. I got it before they were married. Every time we move I make sure it's in our "to be driven in the car for safekeeping" box.
|The pacifier was AB's addition. Of course.|
Ivy is still under the lights for jaundice and can only be taken out to eat, but Mom and I got to hold her for a few minutes before she went back in her little bed. She's such a cute little munchkin. I told Christopher she's the perfect size to stick in my purse. He said kidnapping is illegal/wrong/etc etc etc. That's why I never include him in my plans to permanently borrow children. I don't need that kind of negativity.
While I've been making plans to keep Ivy, my current child is having the time of her life at Grammy and Grampy's. She visits Grampy at work, eats snacks at Memere's and calls every baby she sees Baby Ivy. She visited with her cousins on Sunday and held little Weston. It was her first time holding a baby and she couldn't have been happier. She didn't care that he was screaming the entire time.
Our anniversary is this Friday. Unlike our wedding buddies William and Kate, we will not spend it touring the Taj Mahal. Chances are we won't even be together so I'll probably spend the evening of the 29th touring Pinterest. I should use the time between now and Friday to find Christopher an anniversary gift. The traditional fifth anniversary is wood. I've known that's the category for the last year but that doesn't mean I have a gift yet. Too bad the traditional gift isn't a onesie. I'm an expert in that category.
