Cute pink girly thing #1 for my niece comes in the form of a sock elephant made from this book (which I love–it’s so sweet and easy to do. This would be a good place for little hands to start sewing). Why Cornelia? Why not? Usually I name all my animal friends with alliterative names (Tilly the Turtle, Bacon the Bear, Jehosphaphat the Jackrabbit [my personal favorite--especially when sweet little first graders try to say it], Phileas Frog etc), but Cornelia insisted on something different. I feel like she needs a silk jacket or perhaps a tutu, but I’m sure my niece is not concerned about such things being only 3 days old.
In other news, Nathan was here last weekend:
There is so much snow already! My skiing friends will be excited.
