Currently my two favourite things that Walter says are: Whoopsie-daisy (pronounced: 'woopedadey') and Oh my goodness! (pronounced: 'Oh my doodess!'). Also he has started to call me Mom instead of Mommy. And speaking of calling me, yesterday Logan informed me that I have lots of names: Mommy, Mom, Janice, Bib (I guess that's how it sounds when James says 'Babe') and, most special of all, Jin-Janice (not sure where this one comes from!).

An Artist's Eye

While discussing what colour to re-paint our table once we've fully stripped it, we consulted a paint-chip wheel (is there a technical term for this?) so the fanciful names assigned to the colours were part of our discussion. Logan was interested, of course, and when we decided on the chip named 'Sweet Butter' he decided that a better colour would be 'Sour Butter' -- not a name on the wheel, obviously, but one he has retained and continued to promote in the month or two since our original discussion. Earlier this evening out of the blue he piped up with, "I think I would like to paint my fort... French Blue. Yes, French Blue would be AWESOME!"

A bowl

One evening about a month ago, Walter wasn't feeling great. While he sat on my lap I noticed his fever rising and I went to get a bowl. I brought it to him just in time to throw up. He then felt a bit better and went to bed and was fine after that. This morning he woke up and complained about his stomach so I asked if I should get a bowl and he agreed. When I brought it back he looked relieved and made some gagging noises into it for a minute. Looking up at me sadly he said, "It's not working."

Some thumb

This last picture is a small homage to Princess Charlotte's ride to her christening. We love our pram!
