team chait (hawk, allison, max, and nina) graced us with a short but very sweet visit a few weeks ago. we love this family and miss them terribly.
this is where george-ephraim takes his mid-day naps--our friend rich made this baby hammock and it rules! the grasshopper mobile is from a jeweler that blake knows and it also rules.
very special--all of the cousins from the perlingieri side come together (mayan, chemynne holding george, athena, and isadore)
avia brought mayan a rocking chair from england (and she literally bought it in england and lugged it here) circa 1870. happy early birthday, mg!
beware of the dreaded kitty-pirate!
ancient secret of happy babies and long naps: swaddle and bundle. (we noticed this in the book celebrating babies, that nearly all tribal newborns are swaddled then tied to keep the swaddle in place--this not only calms babies but also helps them sleep sounder by protecting them from their own flailing limbs.)
happy solstice everyone!
