In answering all the questions the boys ask about the new baby, we talk a lot about him. He is already an important part of the boys' life here. So much so that Nicholas asked after dinner,
"Can I take the new baby and show him the sandbox?"
"No, you can't do that," Alex was quick to answer. "He'd just eat the sand."
Yeah, and then there's the minor consideration that he's not born yet either.
