The adoration of the grandchild

We just got home from the airport. My folks were visiting for nine days. The primary purpose of the trip was to bond with their new granddaughter, to which I say "mission accomplished". Posted by Hello

Easter pictures

For Easter we visited Stacy's family in Ohio. Here's a nice picture of Grandpa Bob with Chloë after meeting her for the first time. Posted by Hello

Darrin's affinity for Chloë was the biggest surprise of the weekend. Posted by Hello

Bathtime is much happier than it was in China. Our worries that Chloë had had some unfortunate experience with water seem to be unfounded. She now enjoys it thoroughly. Posted by Hello

Remember that movie "Splash"? Chloë bears little resemblance to Darryl Hannah, but can certainly splash with the best of them. Here you see the effect on Stacy's shirt. Posted by Hello

Dog and child

So much for "about once a week". It's been 2 1/2 weeks since the last update. Thanks for being patient.

We had a comment (please keep them coming!) asking for a picture of Chloë with Gomer, so here are two. As you can see, they are now getting on very well together. Chloë is no longer scared of Gomer, and has even petted him a couple of times (swiftly followed by squeals of delight at how brave she's being). Gomer seems to recognise that she needs to be treated more gently than the full-size adults in the house, and only knocks her off her feet once or twice a day, which she tolerates quite well.

Last weekend we went to Ohio for Easter with Stacy's family who got their first look at Chloë. I'll post some family pictures next. This weekend we are preparing the house for the arrival on Friday of my parents for 9 days of intensive grandchild-adoration. I'd better stop now and get on with clearing the junk out of the guest bedroom. Here are the two junior members of the household enjoying a quiet moment. Posted by Hello

Gomer soon gets bored with quiet moments, and reverts to his favorite activity of licking himself. Consider yourselves fortunate that it's just his leg this time. Posted by Hello
