My niece is doing much better. Still in the hospital, but her fever is gone. The spinal tap they did on her (poor little baby!) revealed nothing to be concerned about, but they'll keep her until she's been fever-free for 48 hours. With luck, she'll be coming back home tonight.

On the other hand, I jinxed myself last night by foolishly mentioning how I wasn't sick. I woke up early this morning feeling like my throat had doubled in size, and I've been feeling progressively ickier all day. Darn it!

It seems unlikely that this could still be Willy's cold, although I have been feeling out of sorts since i returned from Chicago. Maybe I'd just fought it off until today, I dunno. At any rate, Sis said that she took something called Cold-Ease, and it made her cold much shorter than normal. So I picked some up today, and hopefully it will help.

She and I went shopping for baby and birthday stuff today. Tilly turned zero, Willy will turn three, and Mom will turn...well... a bit older. We also visited Petite Sophisticate, our most favorite store ever -- perfect for short people like us. It is closing. Closing! Where will be buy our pants now? Everything was massively on sale today, and we stocked up on a bunch small-people clothes for not a whole lot of money at least. I just hope this stuff lasts!

As we walked out the door, most likely for the last time ever, I bid the store a tearful goodbye.'s rare to find a store with nice professional clothing, all in petite sizes.


And here's another baby story. Will was staying with us the night that his mom and dad were busy having the new baby. We'd told him many times what was happening, but he didn't really "get it". A one point, to try to get him excited, I asked him, "And do you know where we're going to take you tomorrow morning?"

He looked at me with a hopeful face. "Am I going to go see some trains?"


Another sign that he didn't fully understand. I was looking at double strollers on the 'net, and I showed him the screen. "Do you like these?"

He said yes, and pointed to one that he liked best. "I could ride with Maxie in it," he told me. (Maxie is his best friend.)

"Well, no, actually it's going to be mostly for you and your new baby brother or sister....."
