As promised, here is the anticipated video of the cutest little boy in the world, belly laughing at his Mommy. Erika caught Leo at such a great moment when he was totally responsive to his toys. If this doesn't cause you to at least crack a smile, you must be an Obama voter. Enjoy!!

So Zoey stayed with us overnight last weekend to give Jenni and Dave a chance for some alone time before their family increases to 4 very soon. I had seen a little golf set at Wal-Mart and bought it for something new to do at Grammy's and Papa's. Zo took right to it and was doing pretty well until I made the mistake of telling her to "hit" the ball with the club. I forgot that 2-year-olds take everything literally. Our putting game became more of a hockey match, but she had a blast. We also went to my friend Fran's to feed the sheep.
As you can see, Zoey isn't the least bit afraid of them. The sheep are gentle and take the bread with their lips (?) rather than their teeth. We've done this so many times that Zoey knows several of them by name.
Our precious 6-month-old grandson, Leo, is now able to sit by himself for long periods of time. He's a happy boy, now that his perspective on the world has been raised up a notch. He was over 18 pounds at his 6-month checkup, and the doctor added rice cereal to his steady diet of Mommy's milk. He is the sweetest, most content baby!
It looks like spring is here in Texas at last. We could definitely use some rain, but it's so pleasant that we have the windows wide open day and night. Some prankster must have scattered weed seeds around the neighborhood, though, because we are all fighting a losing battle against dandelions, clover, and other indestructible flora. Tony always thought we should tear up the lawn and put down green asphalt, anyway. Maybe this year.........
By the way, if anyone is interested in buying our 2006 350Z roadster, this is the perfect time. The price is right, and it's definitely top down weather. Tony and I have decided to try living with just 1 car now that he's retired and I'm working from home. It will save money and give us more room in the garage. It's a great car and we've enjoyed it so much, but the Suburban is infinitely more practical. Besides, Millie hated riding in the trunk of the Z!
Probably the next time I'll post will be after little Cribby's arrival, so stay tuned. It shouldn't be too much longer. Please pray for a safe, easy delivery and a healthy baby. Thanks!
