My friend Amelia

It has been brought to my attention that I need more pictures of me with Kate, so here are a couple.

Amelia is my Wrinkle Puppy puppet, that I got back in 1989 when I was going away to college. (My sister Betsey has one named Cookie that we always enjoyed playing with, so I thought it would be fun to have one of my own.) She has mostly sat on a shelf all these years, but has occasionally come in handy for entertaining other people's children. Now she gets to entertain Kate. Kate loves Amelia. She shrieks and laughs when she sees her.

There's something about the shape of Amelia's nose that triggers Kate's latch-on reflex. Heh.
