"Are you his nanny?"

Pedro and I like to walk, especially to the park. He gets excited when we see squirrels or rabbits, but he gets very excited when we he sees a dog. He LOVES dogs. (Side comment: To avoid any confusion, we are talking about little Pedro. His daddy loves dogs, too, but he doesn't wave his arms and kick his feet as much as little Pedro when he sees a dog.)

We stopped to talk with a lady who was walking her dog. She asked me, "So, are you his nanny?" A little surprised, I said, "Uh, no, he is my son." She said she thought I looked too young to be his mom. I guess I'll take it as a compliment.

Anyway, I'm glad I'm not his nanny. Lucky me - I get to be his full-time mom. We have so much fun together. I love my boy!

Happy Anniversary! Three Years and Counting!

Pre- Year One
The BIG day - Together ForeverYear OneYear Two Year Three

We like to spread the celebration out over a couple of days. Saturday, we got a babysitter then went to a "Back to the 50's" Street Rod Car Show. Very cool cars and fun people. Wednesday, we got a babysitter then went out to dinner at a nice restaurant in downtown St. Paul.

Hooray for being married to my best friend and love of my life! Thanks for three years of 99% bliss.

Frequently, after an interesting thought, observation or incident, I think, "That would make a great blog post when I get a chance to blog." But, then life happens and suddenly two weeks have past without a post. Sorry.

I have about 40 minutes of video and another 200 pictures I could post, and I don't have time to upload all that now, nor do I expect you have that time to see it.

So, here's a cute picture of my boys.

Happy Father's Day

Good fathers deserve a lot of respect. I am so grateful for my amazing husband, my incredible dad, my awesome father-in-laws and my stupendous grandpas who are all such good fathers.

More to come - for Brette

Clapping for joy (or attention, maybe)
He started doing a crinkle nose smile a couple weeks ago. He has a genetic disposition to point with his middle finger. His aunt and grandpa have it, too. When she saw him point with it, the doctor said, "Oh, aren't you clever!" - I agree.

You've been asking for these, Sis. I'll post more soon.
