1. To wake up of my own accord from a deep sleep into broad daylight.
2. Alec takes the mother's snowdrop because "poorly boys need flowers".
3. On a number of occasions today I have discovered Bettany up to what can only be called mischief. Chewing cables, pulling books out of low shelves and sucking them, picking up food from the kitchen floor. I do miss the convenient little bundle that I could leave anywhere - but I am glad to see her growing, even if the sound of progress is the sound of my books being shredded.
