Fun To Be One!

16 Jan

Today is HB & HB’s official first birthday! As we mentioned recently,  made our first post on 12/31/10 but we didn’t make the blog public until 1/16/11 due to being scared out of our wits. Lucky for us you didn’t throw rotten tomatoes so we stuck around. It’s been a wonderful ride and I hope this will be the first of many birthdays we’ll all celebrate together. Maisougio and I didn’t expect our baby to be so well received and to grow so fast. We are incredibly thankful for the fun, amazing insights and sense of community all of you bring here each day. Thank you from the bottom of our hearts. WATISHISTAS RULE!

Love, Lozil xoxo

Hey, he needed a trim, it was getting pretty unruly. I was just bitching about it the other day.  In happy news, it also sounds like he’s playing really well today. Go Nando go! Continue reading
