Hooray; baby giraffe has arrived!
Next to his parents, he looks almost like a toy, but when you put him next to anything else, you realize his size. He's already taller than me: 5'9".
There's a naming contest for him. I submitted "Reveille," as his arrival trumpeted us all awake yesterday. That came to me as I was tumbling names around in my head. His sire's name is Oliver, which, backward --- revilo --- brought Reveille to mind.
Babies are also front and center knitting-wise. Two people in my orbit are expecting --- one having a boy, the other a girl. I'm going with basics just now --- burp cloths, wash cloths, etc. There's a little time yet in both pregnancies, so there's time to decide on the fancier things. This is my first knitwear model, now waiting to be a big brother. Time does fly.
