Festival of Grandparents
Yesterday, wearing a charming little black and white jumpsuit that her grandpa bought for her in Rome, which makes her look like she's about four years old (and also slightly like a very very cute janitor), Mabel posed for this picture with her three grandparents. Her paternal grandmother is visiting right now from North Carolina, and Mabel is thriving on the great heaps of grandparental love and affection she's getting these days. In a very sad turn of events, her paternal grandfather passed away just a few months before she was born--we console ourselves that he knew she was on her way, winging her way towards us to make us all so happy, but nonetheless it is very sad to think that he never had the chance to meet this baby who he would have loved so dearly.
