This evening, we were looking at baby names for 2.0. Most self-respecting baby name sites include a list of sibling name pairings. These are generally on target, except for this name: apparently, it is favored by visitors who also like the name “Taco Poop”.
Today beatrice and i made a lovely collection of colorful crayon swirls on some paper, and then i made a bird out of the paper and she ran through the house holding it above her head yelling “tweet tweet!” and “it’s flying! Way up high!”
We had a lunch date today at panera! It was super. And i’m pretty sure we sat next to casey treat, seattle area superstar helicopter pastor. It was a bit distracting. In better news, however, panera has clam chowder! Like.

This is a candid photograph of beatrice and her favorite toy, Big Duckie. Big Duckie gets fed regularly and appears particularly fond of raisins from a measuring cup. His opinion is sought on matters such as music and the arts. And sometimes, like all ducks, he leaves for a brief vacation.
I had to work late tonight and i was consequently delighted when k&b stopped by the office with fresh muffins, dinner, and a round of good cheer. I forgot to take a picture while they were here, so here is one of beatrice’s typographical efforts, left on one of my displays after the visit.

I started this book today! I have read enough wodehouse that i am starting to forget which stories i have already read. I suppose that if one were to become lost in an author’s world in this way, wodehouse is not a bad author to go for.
Kelly’s mother and sister came over today and brought cookies! Beatrice had them with “tea” from her special cup that my mother got for her. She was delighted.
Kelly, the world’s best wife, just bought about 5 boxes of this stuff because she knows i drink it by the gallon during the holidays.
