Well, today my niece London was born. Happy literal day of birth to her. :-)
I have maniacal plans to be London's "Auntie Maime", the eccentric and fun relative with a house full of curiosities, and an endless trunk of dress up clothes. I'm not sure how "weird" she'll think me, though - her dad (my brother) is a *far* stranger creature.
We're off to the hospital to see London today, so I leave you with this weird American folk portrait, from the Dewitt Museum in Colonial Williamsburg...
