The Future's So Bright, I've Gotta Wear Shades

Remember that song from the '80s?  That's what came into my head when I introduced Natalie to the concept of sunglasses a few days ago.  She took to wearing them immediately.  In fact, when we were inside where it was a bit dark she screamed when I first took them off of her.  Now she seems to understand that we just wear them when we are outside.

This week I began walking the dogs in the afternoons with Natalie riding in the baby carrier facing out.  She loves being able to see everything that's happening around her as we walk through the neighborhood or through the park.  During our walks she giggles and babbles a lot.  When she hears a dog bark she says "Woof", her new favorite word.

Since the Newfs are so powerful I am walking them one at a time when I have Natalie with me, so our walks last for over an hour.  Yesterday during the Katie part of our walk I tried to take a picture of all three of us with my iPhone.

Thankfully a neighbor appeared on the trail and took a better one for us.

What a wonderful and memorable holiday season this is going to be for your family! She looks so cute in her shades, and I love that she says "woof". :) Soo cute! My son's first word was "uh-gog" (dog) as he was looking at our dog. I think dogs add so much to the lives of children! Totally understand walking them one at a time, though. Buster sends love to his fellow Newfs! :)
