My brother, his wife and my nieces are in visiting today.  Hope to post a picture later today.  The kids are having a blast and it is so much fun having a baby in the house again.  I LOVE babies and would love another one but the thing is, they don't STAY babies.

The baby is darling - she is very calm, introspective and observant.  She will sit and stare at you with this "look" - you are left wondering "what did I do wrong"?  Very cute and funny.  I scared her when I first met her, then won her over for a bit until I tried to teach her to crawl.  After the crawl training session she wanted nothing to do with me again until later this morning when I bribed her with a basket of Care Bears.

My brother and his wife are marveling over the balmy weather we are having.  Having grown up in upstate NY, off Lake Ontario where below freezing temps are a October - April occurance, you get used to the bitter cold.  It has been several years since I have lived in NY and have gotten used to the mild winters and HOT summers.  It is a treat for them to see what a NC winter is like -- I know I take it for granted.  NC winters are unpredictable - yes it is in the 70's today but it snowed last week, but at least we do get those beautiful days in here and there.

Off to the mall shortly if I can get my act together.

Be back later!
