THUNK

(That was me, falling over from the cuteness...)

Please, Alcibiades...whatever you do, don't post any photos of the two of your kids together! I don't think my heart could stand it...

(Do you know the story of Br'er Rabbit?)

She looks adorable in her yogurt.

She's certainly quite taken with the picture, and with it being on Daddy's blog. This morning I read her all your comments - after which she asked me to read them again, and again, and .... and she laughed in delight every time.

Doxy: Br'er Rabbit and the marvellous "trickster" folklore of the South doesn't really figure in our culture, so your mention was much appreciated. Our local bookstore has wonderful illustrated volume - so it looks like we'll be reading and discovering a whole new lot of stories at bedtime tonight. thank you!

If I were a dog, I'd be wagging my tail with happiness at having passed that along to you and Miss Madam...enjoy!

How is she doing with the baby? And how is your wife? Everyone coping okay with the new addition?

Thanks Doxy: Miss Madam is having a wonderful time at playing "Big Sister" - she's really handling it all very well. THe hardest adjustment she seems to be finding ot make is that since December wr cut back on her daycare, and instead she spent 3 days a week with me and the dogs in my office (a serious perk of being self-employed;-), which she loved. Now Mum no longer goes to her job everyday, Missy stays home with her: my productivity has gone wwwwaaaaayyyy up (& the dogs get a lot more sleep LOL), but she often seems to miss that time, so we're about to try returning to a modified version of the old pattern.

Mrs. Caliban is handling it all like the champ she is - tired, but healthy and smiling. She's already spending more time on the phone sorting out things at her office than is good for my liking - but "resting" has never been a strong part of her vocabulary. We have a small children's park across the road from our new house, where quite a community of very friendly mothers gather each day, so she's slotted into that very well, which makes for a wonderful support group.

What an absolutely beautiful child. Furthermore, what fun to wear your breakfast in your hair and to be sure that Mummy and Daddy are going to think it is as precious as it is, want to record it for posterity and to share it with the entire universe. It is clear to see she is a confident and secure young lady. God has smiled on you and your family.
