Our New Baby Boy!!

Allow me to introduce you to Clinton, our new baby boy:

He's a handful - has a definite personality, but Reagan makes sure to keep him in check. She's been a real helper in times of need (i.e. taking the laundry to the laundry room with a small puppy attached to a dangling sock!). Kissel, well, is Kissel. He keeps thinking Clinton is going to behave like Reagan and leave him alone. Unfortunately, that's not happening any time soon so I have put Kissel in the guest bedroom for comfort and relaxation.

I also just returned from a quick, unexpected, short visit to Dallas. Naturally it was to see my adorable nephew and spend some real quality time with him. I had a blast and it was tough to leave - especially since he's learning so many new things every day. I was, however, lucky enough to be around with he first 'showed me his teeth'. I even video'd it so when my sister and BNL got home they would believe me.

Now that I am on more of a schedule with our new baby, I'll try and take more pictures. He (as well as Reagan & I) really benefits from a long walk per day. Good exercise for me and keeps him from totally redecorating the bottom half of our apartment. I will say that he has been a tremendous help in taking off the wallpaper - something I've been meaning to do since we moved in. Too bad he can't reach the top 2/3's of it!!

He's very cute! (and so is your nephew!) I'll have to bring the kids by now that we're on the right side of town. They love animals.

Hallo! How nice to read about your life with Clinton and Reagan! I understand exactly both "problems" and happiness, we are in the same situation. We left Irma to a friend when we left for the countryside last friday so that she should get some rest from puppiework. And so that UllaBella should learn that we - Egon and me - are the ones who make decisions in this house, not her mother... Hope to see you in sommer! A big hug to Clinton from Svensson-Söderman family.
