Louise's future in marketing

To Mummy's disgust, many American businesses are altering the English language. They take perfectly good nouns, like "leverage", and turn them into verbs that take direct objects. Now Louise has started down that treacherous path; worse, she's doing it with adjectives. This evening, she found a stuffed bear in her sisters' room that had removable clothing. She knew she needed to brush her teeth, but when she returned she wanted to remove the bear's clothing. "Me going to naked the bear!!" she proclaimed.

Claire continues to become better at crawling. Charlotte is starting to seem mildly miffed that she cannot get around as well as her sisters (though she does well with standing).
