    Brief update

  • I have just enough money saved up to cover it, in the Baby Furnishings Fund, and yesterday the covers from my baby sister's Moses basket showed up; she had them at 12 days old, and they have been used by both my niblings since, and by a half-Swedish baby called Elva.

  • Because I'm on a family vacation now celebrating my Mom's 75th birthday with my siblings and niblings, I haven't had nearly as much time as I would like to check the news, the blogs or even the comments to our posts.
