Alpha: "Dada cook food!"
James: "No, no. The cooks at the restaurant will cook the food, I can't cook."
Alpha: "Dada cook."
On Snowflake Day, James decided to throw a gift-giving party. He invited a few of his friends over for the afternoon, then went to talk to Alpha.
James: "I'm going to have a party today."
James: "Yeah, a party. There'll be lots of people-"
He couldn't help but chuckle at the face Alpha pulled at that.
Alpha: "No people!"
Alpha: "Play with box?"
James: "Exactly! I'll come and get you when the party's over, okay?"
In the front room, the gift-giving party was underway. Not everybody had brought gifts for everybody else, but it worked out that everybody present got at least one gift, so nobody walked away upset.

Shortish update today, mostly just some filler stuff while people grow up a little. But see, James does care, a little bit deep down inside! I'm trying to do a better job with grabbing toddler pictures this generation, so that you all can actually see what they look like.
