Whatever things are true, whatever things are noble, whatever things are just, whatever things are pure, whatever things are lovely, whatever things are of good report, if there is any virtue and if there is anything praiseworthy -- meditate on these things.

11/13 - Nathaniel found a notebook and a pen on the bed. He had been playing with the notebook, and then I saw him reach for the pen. I said, "What do you need a pen for?" But decided to see what he would do. And I'm glad! Not once did he stick it in his mouth. He very deliberately put it on the paper of the notebook the way he's seen us do. He used both right and left hands, and sometimes the wrong end of the pen. He wrote for quite a long time, sometimes getting marks on the paper but many times not. He was very persistent, and I tried to only intervene when he looked like he might write on the sheets or my pants. It was fun to slow down and just watch.
11/14 - NPD finally warmed up at the firefighter dinner, crawling on dance floor, smiling at everyone. Didn't want to leave. When we got home, I asked Jeremiah if he had fun while we were gone. He replied, "I whining, screaming. I screaming mine head off."
