When Matthew first came home, Grandma and Grandpa T gave him his own teddy bear. We have been waiting ever since then to learn the bear's name. Today, Matthew finally told us. His name is "Ami." Again, with the French -- you know, "ami" as in "friend."
In addition to naming Ami, Matthew climbed for a good reason today! As you can see here, he dragged a little chair over to the bigger chair so that he could climb up and read "Curious George" with Ami!I found this much more charming than earlier this week, when Matthew used the same little chair to climb onto the counter, place the salt shaker on top of the toaster and turn the toaster on, resulting in a melted shaker. And I swear, he accomplished this in about 5 seconds. I was actually in the kitchen with him and scooped him off the counter, but failed to realize that he had turned on the toaster until I smelled burning plastic.
