talk about it more

a virtual baby book

When she was two, Fiona regularly said "Talk about it more!" to express her desire to know more about whatever we were discussing.

Justin Roberts and the Not Ready for Naptime Players

Oh joy! The blurry photos from this concert don't do it justice-- unless you consider that active listeners turn out excitedly blurry... Ian took the girls to a morning concert while I worked, and I took them to the afternoon show after lunch. Apparently the place filled up at both shows, and Fiona said she heard an almost completely different set at the afternoon performance.

The band's energy and enthusiasm were wholly infectious, and people young and old were bopping along with Roberts and crew even if they had never heard his music before. Our family was delighted to hear some of our favorite songs-- Nora jammed to "Willy the Whale" and Fiona especially enjoyed "Billy the Bully". I even got to hear some of my more sentimental favorites like "Cartwheels and Somersaults" (written just for our daughters, I am convinced) and "From Scratch". Ohhhhhhhhhhh, 'From Scratch'. Gets me every time.

Our budget was too stretched to buy the latest CD today (we have others) but Fiona had been waving a hand-colored poster that said "We (heart) Justin Roberts!" He signed it for us, penning, "I (heart) Fiona and Nora above his signature.

We have happy, singing hearts and dancing bodies today.
