Migration of the ones we missed.

Sept 22:
[coming downstairs this morning, Hamish's stomach gurgles]
Hamish: That was something!
K: yeah? What was that?
H: That was my tummach!!
K: yep, your stomach. 
H: My tummach says, "Put some yogurt in my belly!"
Sept 21:
[fridge-clean-out dinner]
Me to Kyle: can I fix you anything?
Kyle: no, I'm fine.
Hamish: Mommy! Fix me everything!

Sept 11:
[Mariah Carey's Dreamlover is on the radio.] 
Hamish: "It's ok, little baby! Don't cry about the music!"

Sept 1:
Hamish (riding her bike and singing): ...down came the rain and washed the spider out...
[crashes into the diaper bag in the hall and falls over]
Me: Oh no! What happened?
Hamish: I fell down and didn't finish my song!

Aug 22:
Hamish: (very deliberately): Please may I have a whole big piece of pie in a little container.
K: I appreciate the nice asking, but I've already said no pie. We haven't had dinner yet.
Hamish: [trying a new tactic] Give me some pie!
K: Go see Mommy.

Aug 12:
H: I have i-de-as
K: You do?
H: I have big ideas!
K: Well I have ideas too!
H: Daddy, you have little ideas.
Jul 31:
H: Feed me my water, Daddy.
K: You can do it by self.
H: I'm a baby!
K: You sure talk a lot for a baby.

Jul 25:
[I leave my office to go to the kitchen to get a snack. H hears me and calls from upstairs.]
H: What you doing Mama? Hold me!
A: I can't right now, baby. I'm working.
H: You work in the kitchen, now, Mama?

Jul 21:
H: I like jelly and peanut butter, Dada says.
K: ... I didn't actually say that.

Jul 18:
K: What else should we bring to make sure you're happy on this trip?
H: Uhhhhh.... not this wall.
K: No. We should leave the walls here.

Jun 25
K: Ready, set, go!
[little running feet. Pause]
H. Say on my marks!

Jun 7:
H, during dinner last night: "I need to... finish eating and... put on my ..swimsuit and go ...outside and go swimming... with daddy and Louisa, yay!"

I post "overheard" posts on Facebook regularly, but I worry that we are going to lose these snippets of life with Hamish, so I'm going to try to cross post them here as well. 

Overheard in my car: 
[Hamish in her car seat playing quietly with a deck of cards]
H: Mommy! I need my cards! I dropped them. 
Me: [reaching back, pulling and straining all kinds of things] Here you go. Try not to drop them again. 
H: I'm juggling! Juggle! Juggle! Juggle! ... Mommy! I need my cards! I dropped them.

Fauntleroy is 6 weeks old already! Can you believe it? So I thought you needed a photo dump to catch up with what we've been up to. I asked Hamish to help me, so these captions are all hers.

 That's Honey and Baby [Fauntleroy]! She's holding him.


Hamish: That's Daddy holding [Fauntleroy] and me.
Me: Is that for a football game? Is it Carolina?
Hamish: Nope. Carolina is next week.

Hamish: That's Baby [Fauntleroy] getting a diaper change!
Me: ... no it's not.
Hamish: That's me in my turning-around dress.

It's a riding horsey one! Daddy is riding that one and I am riding that one. Mom, where is Honey riding?

There's Mimi and [Hamish] and Baby [Fauntleroy].

That's [Hamish] and Baby [Fauntleroy] taking a picture. 

Clearly she's over this game. Although it looks adorably similar, Fauntleroy has not found his fingers yet.

All the boys in garnet before the big game.
