The pretty blue box!

Wednesday, May 2, 2007
Today started out as any other day. I woke up, had a bottle, ate breakfast, took a nap, played on the floor (I love the hairbrush). Then, one of Mom's friends came over and brought us lunch. That was nice.

But after lunch, we noticed that a box had been delivered. It looked like any other brown box...nothing special.

However, inside that brown box was a beautiful blue box. It was not just any blue but the most beautiful shade of blue. Mom has already taught me that according to etiquette, one must always read the card first.

Then, I untied the ribbon.

Oh, I just love the feel of this box.

Dad had to step in to help open the lid.

Inside was the most beautiful bunny China set. My first gift from Tiffany's and my first set of China. What a day!

Mom told me that I would grow to love the sight of these little blue boxes. I decided to climb inside this magical box. How fun! Thank you Chew family for the wonderful gift! Don't worry Mommy is an etiquette traditionalist so a hand written thank you is on its way too.

Thank you for your well wishes for Kate's ear infection. She is doing much better. I, however, have injured a rib during an especially strenuous coughing fit (a cold or allergies?). It only hurts when I breathe (or move).


  1. I think I got my first Tiffany's box when I graduated with my Master's! She is starting off right! I prefer Kate in the box but the China is very pretty too!! Her dress is beautiful. What fun you look like you are having with a little girl! I am glad she is happy and feeling better. Dale LID 5-24006

  2. How beautiful! I absolutely love China. Your daughter is just so lovely.

  3. I'm so glad that Kate is feeling better! I'm sorry that your rib hurts and hope you're feeling better soon!

    Kate looks so gorgeous! I can tell that you're really enjoying dressing her (and you do it so well). The photo of Kate in the Tiffany box is my favorite photo of Kate so far. I love that dress!

  4. OOOO...Tiffany's...lucky girl. She looks beautiful in the box

  5. What a lucky girl! I got my first special blue box when I was 16! It had pearls in it :D

    I absolutly LOVE the picture of Kate in the box!

  13. Kim,
    I love "the pretty blue box" story, Kate Emerson is so precious! All the pictures are beautiful, I love the one where daddy is opening the box...she's just waiting with such innocence! I'm enjoying YOU "enjoying having a daughter" and look forward to doing the same one day! That comment (you made the other day while shopping/lunching with the girls) made me cry. I know I'll feel the exact same way some day! I'm happy for your family, you ALL are blessed!

  14. I love the pictures, Kate looks gorgeous! The one with her in the blue box is adorable! They are all great! I am glad she's feeling better and I hope you rib is better soon, I know it is painful.
