Grandma and Grandpa meet a whole new baby! Last time they saw Nutmeg, she was in a fussy tummyache stage where she had to be bounced on one's knee almost every waking minute. All she could do besides cry was stare. Now, she makes little speeches when she can see people are listening to her. She grabs everything from toys to food off the table to newspapers and tries to get it all in her mouth. She laughs. She sits up for a short time before toppling over. And she's fascinated with Indy, the gentle Shetland Sheepdog. Indy, on the other hand, is keeping his distance. He's met little people before and knows they're kinda scary. Of course, to Indy, the "kinda scary" category also includes fire hydrants, cars, the coffee grinder, and any person he hasn't seen in a few months.
Today, Grammy and Grampy Kirby get to meet the new and improved Nutmeg, and Oma and Grandma and Grandpa Ibsen will see her for the very first time.
