*****I finally got to meet Baby L! She's so tiny and skinny-newborn-ish! It's amazing how small babies look before they get plump. And she feels like she weighs about as much as JK's leg. JK tried to steal the tissue and cellophane from L's gift. When she wasn't allowed that, she contented herself with Aunty T's keys. JK with Aunty T (who does NOT look like she just had a baby. She looks terrific!): The new mama and baby: I'm so happy I finally got to see this sweet baby. JK now has 5 girl cousins...no boy cousins yet.
*****Thanks for all the great suggestions on what to do with my ugly spot. I think for now I've decided to paint it the same colour as the wall and see how it looks. That's the way I was leaning initially anyway.
