Another present has come home to roost, photographically. Meet Caillum and his mother, Mirja, ready for the Chicago winds. Pops Ted is one of my son's best friends from college, Cambridge, Ithaca, and beyond, a fellow I've loved for years. Caillum has dutifully donned or been covered by a sweater that will suit him better after the new year, but what a nice oversized thank-you-note photo, which makes me laugh. I made the neck of this sven sveater big so big baby head wouldn't struggle getting inserted, but it looks like I was over-generous in conceiving of Caillum's circumference. Brilliant child, beautiful family, chill-beating sweater.
