What a Crazy Month!

October has just been a wild ride for us. We have had some very fun and exciting things happen this month. First, my nephew was born on October 10th. He was a full 10 lbs 15 oz and 23 inches long! He also came with a stunning full head of blond hair! He really is precious. Sarita seems to have recovered pretty well and she and Eric are adjusting to life with a newborn. It is fun to get to be the aunt and just hold him and such when we are together and then hand him back to his mom when he gets hungry and fussy. It is really sweet though. He is just under three months younger than his uncle Jack (and nearly the same size) so it will be fun for him to have some family close in age to play with as he grows up.

Also we have been working very hard this month with our dog Oscar and we are proud to announce and he is officially house trained! I know, not very exciting to all of you, but it is great! (Those of you who have potty-trained a child will understand the joy). He is also crate and kennel trained and is doing well with the command "come." He has grown so much and we are excited about that, though he still thinks that he is a lap dog. We found a wonderful obedience class that starts in January that will run for ten weeks. He will be six and a half months old by then, so the perfect age. He is a smart dog and catches on quickly (it took about a week to potty train him) so I think that this will be wonderful for him.

We have some other fun news to share but that will have to wait for another post...
