The tiny person pictured here is my newly minted niece Rachel. She’s a mere few hours old so I haven’t had much chance to influence her little life. So far she seems to be mostly sleeping, perhaps to store up energy for all the fun I plan to throw at her.
She’s a bit too small for the plucked chicken Viking hat that has been made especially for her. In fact, she could almost fit not just her head but her whole body into it now. But soon she will wear it proudly, or if not proudly than with great bewilderment, and I look forward to that with pride.
