I vacuumed. I cleaned the bathroom. And then I got a text message from Holly. Her doctor had an emergency and had to move her appointment to Friday. FRIDAY???? I can't take Friday off. Darn! Undeterred, I decided to visit her and the most beautiful grandson in the whole wide world anyway! I picked up lunch for us at 'Wiches in Oxford on the way out to Holly's house. Michigan Salad was good, Chicken Salad sandwich was delish, but the Lobster Bisque was bleh - no discernible lobster pieces and a bit spicy.
I took some special gifts for baby Denver. First was a wonderful handknit Baby Surprise sweater and matching booties from my friend Harriet. It's gorgeous but I forgot to take a picture (next time!). Second was a beautiful quilt from my friend Sue. Here are some pictures of the quilt and Denver enjoying it!
I can see the workshop with Diane Gaudynski is paying off Sue!!!
I also took out my special Denver items - a hat, a t-shirt and a bib, all from Cafe Press. Here's my wee one sporting the hat:
My sister Denise, who is Holly's godmother, sent Denver a package last week -- his first mail! In the box were three pair of super cute shoes -- his first pair of Keens, Merrills and these North Face boots:
Aren't they precious??!!
I held him in my arms while Holly took a shower and he was so content. Seriously, he doesn't cry when I hold him. I think he knows already how much I love him. I was so glad to spend the afternoon with them, even if our plans did get changed on us. I look forward to doing this again very soon!
