1. Caitlin had a rough start to the week, being kind of barfy overnight on Sunday and most of Monday. We’re not sure of the reasons–often it’s just allergies or random throat tickles. She’s doing much better now. Kept her overnight feed down last night, and has been better today.  Michael posted a picture of […]

1. This is exciting! Two missing episodes of Doctor Who have been found! One is from The Underwater Menace, and the other is from Galaxy 4. (So, Troughton and Hartnell, respectively).
