Cousin Nafan's Boat...

(Let me preface this by saying that my nephew Nathan is stationed nearby on a ship called the San Antonio.  This ship, unfortunately, has never worked very well.  Too bad for Nathan, who joined the navy to see the world...  And this conversation happened while crossing a bridge.)

Miss A:  There's Cousin Nafan's boat!
Mama:  Oh.  That's not Cousin Nathan's ship.  It looks like it though.
Miss A:  Where is Cousin Nafan's boat?
Mama:  I think it's out in the ocean.
Miss A:  Maybe it sunk!

Rules for Babies

1.  Food stays in the belly.
2.  Poops stay in the diaper.

Those are the two cardinal, hard and fast laws, but, here are some Strong Suggestions:
1.  Focus only on eating.  Babies don't need to multitask.
2.  If it's light around you after you eat, stay awake and play.
3.  If it's dark around you after you eat, go to sleep.
4.  Suck a plug, even if you don't want to. 

Miss R

The Baby Sister has arrived!  (If she looks concerned, she has cause...  The Big Sisters don't have the best grip on her...)  She is a good sleepy baby, and her sisters love her, mostly because Miss R came home from the hospital with some very nice presents for her sisters...  Playmobiles will buy anyone's love, right?
