I am going up to London again tomorrow to see how much Amelia has learned and grown in the week since I saw her. I will be taking up the christening robe which has been in the family since about 1850. The lace and embroidery are exquisite and I am dreading having to iron it. And I'm not looking forward to dressing Amelia in the many petticoats and yards of silk, even though I'm sure she will look very fetching. The parents of the first child who wore the outfit had maidservants and a nurse to do those things with much greater skill than I possess!
I'll be back in a week, don't have too much fun while I'm away!
