We're going to Be UNCLES !!!

Great news !!! My sister Lauren is having a baby boy in November and that officially makes us Uncles -  Uncle Cappy and Uncle Ollie - we like the sound of that. Our nephew is due around the beginning of November - a great month.  Jessica's birthday is November 3rd and Ollie's barkday is November 1st.

Here we are with our sisters, Jessica and Lauren.

Here's  Lauren and Mom (Granny) with our nephew hiding underneath the grey top.
 


For the most part, we've been deadbeat bloggers this summer because our Assistant has been spending way too much time in airports and in Babies R Us. Our days follow the usual pattern ~~ playing, eating, napping and  trips to the dog park in the evening when the temperature is cooler.  I'm always placing bets on the races and barking encouragement to my horses.
 

Ollie still excels in testing out crochet projects . . .


But this is what we do best . . .


We  are going to be bachelor boys again next week.  Mom is flying  to the East Coast to bring our 90 year old Grandma back with her to live with us.  It should be interesting  ~~ Grandma isn't overly fond of animals and she has no idea that there's going to be 2 dogs in the house.   The entire house has been overturned to create a bedroom/living room suite for her downstairs.  Ollie and I have already tried out the bed and I told him not to leave any *surprises* in her room.

I hope he  doesn't give a welcome pee on her leg when he meets her.

Have a great  weekend everyone !!!

You two will be wonderful Uncles but remember tiny humans have very strong grips that like to pull soft fluffy hair...beware! Your mom will be a VERY good grandma!

Wish you had been able to join us for brisket and chicken today...there was even room of Dragon's chair for you to sit...we could have celebrated your "promotion" to uncle-ness!

I bet mom will be glad that she doesn't have to worry about grandma being so far away and all. Remember, new family members ALWAYS take adjustment time and it is not easy...believe me, I KNOW!

So Cappy, IS mom EVER going to come home and take you and Oliver on am adveture? You guys are so patient! And you need some extra special pampering!

Siku Marie, White Dog said...

Thanks for the VERY nice words, Cappy! I think you are quite the handsome gentleman, yourself!

Please visit my blog. There is an award we want to share...and LOTS of bloggers who want to get to know you better!

Thanks for the nice words to Michael. He always get so excited when my blog "family" sends him encouragement! Mom says she TOTALLY understands the time and energy involved in suddenly adding a person to your "normal" routine. Is there anything we can do to help. If you want, you can always Facebook mom if you would rather. Remember to make time for each other and for just "me" time.

I am glad to read that I am not the only one who gets upset when mom and dad leave me at home! It gets really lonely and I worry about them...and I wonder what I am missing. Hope you had a really nice holiday weekend and that your grandma is settling in.

Hey Cappy, this is for the siblings... we have to let them have a say every so often...

Oliver, Quinn wants to share his first ever just for him award with you. He says you will understand how important firsts are. When you get the chance, please visit our blog.
