Happy 6th of July!

Big Smiles!

In the Bunny Slippers

In her 4th of July dress with her friend Kaitlyn

OK I know I haven't exactly been keeping up to date with my blogging. I guess I've been a little (?) lazy. I think I'm just so absorbed in my life as a Daddy that things I had time and energy for before are getting pushed back in favor of "baby" stuff. If it wasn't for DVR, I'd never see a complete TV show. I've been reading the same chapter of a book for like two weeks now. The poor Boys are ready to stage a K9 revolt as we have only been to the park for swimming once in the last three weeks. (In my defense on that last one, it's been anywhere from 105 to 110 around here lately, and my idea of fun is not standing in the shadeless dog park for an hour watching them swim in the pond while I burn to a crisp in the sun. You can't even sit on the benches unless you tie oven mitts to your legs!)

On the other hand, Sabrina continues to be a source of love and amazement to both of us. After a few minutes of focused struggling, she is able to roll over on to her tummy now. She's starting to coo and have little conversations with objects in her immediate view. At 2 1\2 months, she has already outgrown more clothes then I own. And that smile...seems it almost never goes away! She'll wake up in the morning, see you looking at her, and out it comes. She loves to smile and is starting to slowly giggle now, and don't stick out your tongue or she'll do it right back. Of course there are tyrannical moments; she turns on a dime when she suddenly realizes--Hey, I'm hungry--bring me a bottle! But that goes without saying.

On the 4th we went to a BBQ given by a couple of dads that we met through IAC. Their baby was born about a month before Sabrina, and we like to think they'll become good friends with a somewhat common history. We had a great time, and she slept the whole way home. Nice.

How sweet!! I love how much you love her. I think it's amazing to hear a man talk about his daughter that way. Thanks for sharing the pictures and the thoughts.

Nice blog! It's good to see another set of two dads, two dogs and a baby. :D (only in our case it's a baby boy and two Great Danes, but still!)

Keep it up!
