So MANY Firsts







These sweet pups were born on May 5th 2010 to Papa and Pepa's dog Penny. So when we came here we had new puppies for the kids to play with! Papa named them Pancho and Lucy when they were born. We get to keep Lucy! She is so, so wild and therefore, fits right in. We all love her so much! (p.s. Erin I'll call you! I had no idea!! But it's such a sweet name!)

The Sweet Pupper

Her first bath

We take her for her first shots on Monday and we'll find out more about what type of dog she is. Her mom is a chihuahua/ dachshund mix. I think the father is a puggle, but we shall see. Either way she will be a small pup. We're super happy to have her in the family.

Big Willy is 6 months!

Will is already 6 months! Papa calls him Big Willy, but just so we have it straight, no one else is allowed to call him that! His name is Will:)

This little man is super strong and wants to explore all day.

He is officially an ambi-turner- he could only turn one way for some time.

He sits and walks with help.

Loves to swim with his papa.

Loves sweet potatoes and applesauce.

Hates peas

He cut his first tooth on Saturday the 26th- a bottom front tooth.

When he doesn't get what he wants or wants something he can't have he throws a fit, thanks to the best teacher around--Ellie. He's been doing it for 5 days now!

But he's mostly a happy, happy smiley baby. And so sweet to all. I love this cuddly sweet little man. Every morning he gives me a huge baby smile, excited laugh and fat juicy baby kiss on my cheek that melts me even if it's 6 am. I smile just thinking about him.

Pictures from Daddy

The Dental Clinic
Daddy in his costume at his quarters. The fact that he's wearing his bullet proof vest scares me.

The lovely Afghanistan Mountains

Andrew is doing just fine.
