Yesterday, we were all in the car, with the three boys crammed into the back with the baby's car seat and the others' booster seats, on our way to a special place we like to call McDonald's when I heard Daniel talking to the baby and calling him "Nathan Edward." He then said that we should call the baby "Nathan Gordon."
At first I couldn't figure out why Daniel wanted to call the baby Nathan Gordon. And then it hit me and I started laughing: Daniel thinks of this Edward when he says Nathan Edward, not this Edward, who the baby is actually named after.
I think I'll let them believe for a while that the baby is named after one of Thomas' friends. After all, it's probably less traumatic to believe that you're named after a very useful steam engine rather than a blood-sucking vampire.
