Dulcie still hasn't met her French cousins, but already the family ties are strong, apparently. Here she is with a baby photo of her eldest cousin from my side of the family, Kim (who'll be turning seven this summer) and the resemblance is uncanny, wouldn't you say?
We obviously have a genetic predisposition for high-waisted red tights on my side of the family!
Isn't Dulcie's mini quilt lovely? It's handmade and was a present from a mysterious benefactor. All the babies in neonatal intensive care were given one as a welcome-to-the-world present. The neonatal wards were awash with handmade donations. The babies all slept under beautiful hand-knitted blankets and each got one to keep on Christmas Day. I'm hoping I can muster some craft skills and spare time to make something for the neonatal ward one day as those little touches really made a big difference to me during the difficult days of Dulcie's hospitalisation. Maybe they'd like some mini bunting for all the cots and incubators!
