There's a new baby upstairs. He just turned a month old and is starting to respond and look around at the world. The COG acted as a Baby Whisperer and got him to sleep. He slept for quite a while, too, completely collapsed and floppy on the COG's arm. It was really sweet.
Thursday, we pick up a rental car and start the round of visits in the Midlands. First Auntie N, at her caravan in the Cotswolds. Then, some cousins in Herefordshire for a couple of nights. Finally, on Saturday, we will pick up Sister Rose and her husband who will be arriving from the States, exhausted, at Heathrow. Then, followed by a busy week of sightseeing with The Roses. More about that later, too. As it happens.
