Well said, Mr. James.

I am currently reading The Wings of the Dove by Henry James. As a book lover I thought this was a fantastic compliment...

"The women one meets - what are they but books one has already read? You're a whole library of the unknown, the uncut. " He almost moaned, he ached, from the depth of his content. "Upon my word I've a subscription!"
- Mr. Merton Densher

Despite having a name like Merton, the boy can still make a girl's heart melt.

While Mat Kearney plays...

We're in the process of making dinner. Technically, we're in the process of cleaning the kitchen so we can make dinner, but whatever. Joe is having a rough week. I think we're about to cut some teeth, but thus far he's just chewing on everything in site and fussy when he can't find something to chew on. He was sitting in his swing while we be-bopped around the kitchen and got mad when he dropped the spoon he was chewing on. Caleb doesn't like the noise he makes when he's not really crying, but just kind of fussing and many times will go "Son!" in an exasperated voice when we can't seem to make Joe happy. On this occasion, Caleb calmly said, "Come on, Man." However, Blythe yelled, "SON!" causing Caleb to laugh hysterically which made Joe stop crying for the time being.

Good Morning

Here's who I've been hanging out with since about 5:45 this morning.
