How "Walter" Got His Name
The day after our son was born, my husband and I were gazing adorably at him as he grunted and did his baby thing (hey, what else can you do in a hospital room?). Harry said, "he looks like a grumpy old man." I laughed, agreed, and posted that on my Face*book status, along with a picture. My cousin made a comment saying, "Walter Matthau reincarnated!" So, we occasionally call him "Walter" when he's being cranky. He no longer looks like Mr. Matthau, but the nickname stuck.
