We’ve had a new baby around here for a month or so, but I thought I’d wait till she’d settled in to bring her into the blog. I also needed a name, and Emma thought of a brilliant one.
The new baby is a chipper little dumpling of a thing — we call them “Buddha babies” around here — with dark, dark brown hair, brown-almost-black eyes, pale skin and a shriek of joy that can shatter glass. And eardrums.
She’s a crawler just yet, but is pulling up on the furniture… when her hands aren’t busy stuffing things into those apple cheeks. She’s quite adorable.
Her name is Lily.
