New Addition

For those of you who didn't know, we lost our bunny Cotton last summer. It was a very sad time for us. With the new baby coming we decided not to get a new pet right away.

About a month ago we decided we were ready.

Introducing...Duchess Patches
Zoe and Tate both contributed a name.

Zoe takes care of all the feeding and litter box changing, Tate takes care of the chasing and frightening. Who do you think she likes better?

The Tate on Pregnancy

Tate: Hey mom maybe if you eat something every everyday
then your belly will get big and a baby will come out after 3 months.

Tate has a very different understanding of reproduction than Zoe did at his age.

Some funny stories from my hillarious 4 year old...

The other day Tate was running around the living room with his arms straight down at his sides giggling.
"Look dad I'm a penguin!"
Then he began counting his laps around the couch...
"peng-one, peng-two, peng-three..."

Over the weekend Ben and Tate were playing cars in Tate's room and Tate turned to Ben and said,"Daddy I have potty words in my head."
Ben replied, "Oh really?"
"Yep," Tate said "the potty words are floating around in my head trying to get out and the only way to stop them is to give me candy!"

This morning Tate said to me "Mommy do you want to hear the story of how I hurt my elbow?" "Of course I want to hear it!" I said
"One upon a time" he began, "I was going potty and I fell off the toilet."
