Abby in a hat
Originally uploaded by innerbrat
Before Bing returned to the other side of the pond yesterday, I dragged her back to the InnerRents for the express purposes of going to the annual cheese and wine consumption that the InnerSchwester's in-laws put on each year. This picture of Abby wasn't taken there: I was so distracted by her cuteness I forgot to record it, but this is the picture I'm using because it's her modelling the lacy baby hat I knitted for her. I have knitted other things for the baby, but apparently her parents don't like them much, for I have seen no pictures of her wearing them.

Anyway, there she is, being paraded around the room in what I assume was a game of pass the baby - whoever is holding the parcel when the music turns to crying has to unwrap the top layer and deal with whatever may be found underneath. She dealt very well indeed with the cooing and the attention: I guess she'll have to be used to it if she continues to cuten at this rate. And she still can't work her neck muscles or focus. We know this because my Dad and I spent some time trying to see if she'd follow our fingers.

Bing, of course, had to comment on this. Everyone else is cooing over how cute, she remarked on returning to the family group with a full plate of sausages. You two are running cognitive tests.

So I guess we can safely say she's met the family. Even had Dad apply his logic of benevolence to her, calling my flat only to have her answer then persuading her to accept a bed and a lift to the airport through the gentle insistence that his way is better than coming back to mine and taking a two hour tube trip to the airport. I was no help, of course: when I realised he was breaking down her defenses with logic, I just laughed. Maybe she needs more practice on me before trying to win against the man I learned from? Wish her luck there.

I wouldn't worry about them not liking the other stuff. She'll grow out of everything by the end of the week anyway.

You may be slightly too early with the eye focus test - it usually appears consistently at about 1-2 months although it does appear intermittently in some babies earlier than this. See, I too can be a geek in my area of specialisation! :-)

Getting the significant other to meet the parents is always an adventure. Although it's now 26 years ago, I have never forgotten my father's reaction to my gleeful "Dad, I'm engaged!" phone call. He simply said "No, you're not!" and hung up on me. He didn't even know who it was!

Okay. I read the post but I retaiend nothing from it except, "OMG THAT BABY IS SO PRETTY AND CUTE AND PRECIOUS."

You need to post more pictures, obviously.

Hope you don't think me rude for asking an off-topic question: but what date exactly is the OHG recording?

OMG OT question how dare you?!?


It's Feb 5th, I think. My tickets have still not arrived, though I did apply for them. I'll let you know.
