Pictures from Nonna
(That's Grandma in Italian)
It was the best of times...
It was the worst of times...
Two extra things to notice:
The red and white suspenders aren't just a new California fashion. Cece
was born with Congenital Hip Dysplacia, a complication of being breech.
The suspenders are actually a "Pavlik Harness" that she will be wearing
for 6 weeks to 6 months as her hip sockets get a chance to develop normally.
Everyone who has seen her thinks that it makes her look a bit like a hamster.
(We think she is much cuter though...)
Hiding in the back of the bassinet is a unique giraffe doll. This doll
was hand made by one of Donald's mother's cousins. Close up the doll is
just darling (and I don't use that term very often). It just radiates love
and positive energy. Perhaps we'll get a close up later...
