  1. Basil, Amara, Aurelia, Viola, Constantine, Asa, Mathilde, Inez, Finnegan, Leora... all fabulous finds.

    Thanks to Extremely Loud and Incredibly Close, the name Oskar makes me smile. I know there were quite a few people who found the movie boring or whatever, but I loved it. My cousin has Asperger's too, so it pulled on my heartstrings a little. I thought Thomas Horn did an excellent job with his role.
