Charlie is into machines. Specifically, inventing them. Tonight we taped together various things from the kitchen--a pen, a rubber band, a yogurt container lid, a nozzle for piping icing. It featured both a button and a thing that went round and round, the two main elements of a successful machine. Charlie wrote a "boopint" on a post-it note...

Why do so many of our great moments feature post-it notes?

...and then we showed the whole contraption to Daddy before Charlie went up to drift off, snuggled up under our wedding ring quilt on a drizzly, foggy, Maritime evening.

Wow, that's really cool. A little engineer. You must post about any future machines!!
