I love this photo! I told Aurelia I wish I could have a giraffe print dress just like this one!

Felix is so sweet!

I loved having July 4 fall on a Sunday this year. With "summer hours" at my job, I got out of work at noon on Friday and didn't have to return until Tuesday morning!! It felt as though I had a four day weekend! I'm thinking, I could get used to this!!

On Monday, several members of my family and I gathered at my Aunt Liz's for a time of visiting and going out to lunch. As always, the children - Aurelia and Felix - were the main attraction. Aurelia charmed us with her delightful smile and darling comments. Felix just charmed us with his sweetness. Each of us took our opportunity to hold him.

Peder and Sarah returned Pat's cradle and Aunt Liz added Felix's name to the bottom piece of it. Felix is #17 to have slept in this cradle - it's quite the family piece.

Looks like you had a great 4th!

Too bad Annika and Will are too big for the cradle. I think Josiah slept in it though, right?

Yes, Josiah slept in it when he was 3 months old. You had a great 4th also!

You could sew yourself a giraffe print dress.
