A Full House
Much like my blog for the last few weeks, things are suddenly quiet here at Chez JayJay. We've had nearly a month of visitors, both family and friends. The lure of RJ was enough to convince many visitors to make the long trek to California, some from the east coast and Canada. We've loved catching up with them and each visit seemed too short.
And how is little RJ? She is getting bigger and learning new things each day. She now sits up fairly well, grips like a champ, and has developed a fondness for grabbing her left foot (I think she's trying to get it to her mouth). She's also developed a strong dislike for riding in the car, particularly in stop and go traffic. She does seem to like a smoothly flowing freeway, however. I guess she really is a Californian. I should be able to post more regularly now that the first wave of visitors has come and gone, and perhaps even get some knitting done.
I will leave you with some beautifully modeled knitwear that I had nothing to do with. Here is RJ in her baptismal outfit. The gown was knit by my mother knit for me 35 years ago. Isn't it lovely? My wonderful friend JennC knit RJ a matching bonnet and slippers. So she was literally dressed in handknits from head to toe. Despite a warm day, she was a real trooper and hardly complained at all about the fancy attire (although the bonnet took some coaxing) and didn't even cry when she was woken from a lovely nap by having water dumped on her head. I'm pretty sure if someone did that to me I would cry (and probably swear a bit), so I'm quite proud of her.
