Kate and I took a trip to meet baby Brooke and her mom, Anne. Much to Anne's credit she recognized the gift as a bolero - not a sweater. While I worked on this, everyone would tell me "That sweater is way too small". I found myself yelling at people "IT'S NOT A SWEATER! IT'S A BOLERO! THERE'S A DIFFERENCE!". I even took the book with me, just in case Anne needed proof too.
Brooke and Mom
Unfortunately, I wasn't able to get any photos of Brooke modeling her BOLERO. It's best to let sleeping babies sleep. However, before I left home I was able to find a suitable model to stand in.

"Bib, schmibs - give me a bolero - I must have a bolero!"
