Piggybank

Every Swiss baby needs a place to stash their gold. Sometimes, even a Swiss bank account won’t do. So Juliette wants to say a big thank you to Aunt Alexandra for her wonderful new teddy-bear piggybank…

Blue Jeans

This post is especially for Juliette’s grandmother, who likes to follow her sartorial tastes. Today Juliette’s wearing her new blue jeans.

Witching hour

The many faces of the witching hour. Normally, little Juliette is a delightful, happy baby. But from 6-7pm, when she tired at the end of the day, all bets are off. She’s fussy one minute, happy the next, then fussy again. Like Forrest Gump’s box of chocolates, during this early-evening window, you never know what you’re going to get.

Kidnapping

Aunt Liher came to visit on Monday and Tuesday while Dad was away on his business trip.

Avec ma tata Liher : "muy hermosa"

With my Aunt Liher: “muy hermosa”

They got on well together right way. Aunt Liher gave Juliette a wonderful quilt that she had sewn especially with fabric from Liberty. And as she rocked Juliette, she taught her some important words in Spanish: “Hermosa” and “mi amor”. She even called Uncle Jerome and said that Juliette was a model baby and that the bar was very high for a future cousin.

It all started to fall apart when Aunt Liher tried to slip Juliette into her luggage and take her back to Annecy, but luckily Mom didn’t agree to this plan. Juliette escaped her first kidnapping attempt!
