4. Iris spent last weekend with us. She loves being outdoors, and was very excited to help rake leaves with Grandpa. He set her into the wheelbarrow and piled the leaves on top of her, then trundled her down to the compost bins where she flung handfuls of leaves into the bin. Such fun.
Alas, her pink hat is now gone. She went for a walk one afternoon with her other grandmother, on a very blustery day. Iris is fond of pulling off her hat and when she did the hat flew off into the water under the bridge they were crossing. She was heartbroken, and even a day or two later the mention of a hat brought consternation.
5. Thank you for all the congratulations on my last post's announcement. I don't have any good photos yet, but will share one when I do. Our early Christmas gift's name is Cora Cassandra, she weighed in at 7 lbs 8 oz, and is the sweetest bundle. I spent several hours in a rocking chair holding her against my chest while her mother slept. Utter delight.
Five thing. Four photos. Have a wonderful weekend.
