1. Instead of sweeping his unwanted food on to the floor as he normally does, Alec puts his bowl on the table. I've been asking him to do that for about six months now, and I'm so pleased that my extravagant praise is through-and-through genuine.
2. Warbling Jolene to distract Alec when he is protesting against a nappy change.
3. Our Oxfam Bookshop is collecting something unusual -- bras. I've changed size since Alec was born, so I take some old nursing bras down.
