...We go!!! We went to see Dr. Dan last week.

Last Friday, we went to the dentist for the first time! I thought for for sure that there was no way under she sun that Jillian was going to voluntarily open her mouth for anyone especially the dentist!!

Boy, did she prove me wrong!!


Dr. Dan is the GREATEST dentist in the ENTIRE UNIVERSE!!!

Evan and Cindy, we can't thank you enough for recommending Dr. Dan!!!

He put us all at ease. We received new tooth brushes and presents too!! Jillian has no cavities and her teeth are straight!! No issues!

We go back to Dr. Dan in August.

Both John and I want to see Dr. Dan!!
He's the BEST!!

Oh the Drama!!

It was a Sunday.
The last Sunday in February to be exact.

Jillian and her Daddy went out for a walk to give Mommy a much needed break. Naturally, "Baby" went with them.

After I took care of a few things in the house, I decided to go out to join them on their walk and maybe take a few pictures outside. I put my coat on, grabbed the camera, and was just about to step outside when three miserable sad sacks came in the door - Jillian, John and "Baby".

Nobody was at all happy. I couldn't imagine what happened.

Apparently, my little trio visited one the the neighbors dogs - Bailey - as we often do when going for a walk.

John had picked Jillian and "Baby" up to give Bailey a friendly pat behind the ear when the TRAGEDY occurred.

Bailey kidnapped "Baby" and a meltdown of an 8.5 earthquake ensued!

As John puts it, Bailey's Mom had to intervene and rescue "Baby".

Poor "Baby" was just a little worse for the wear - not in too bad shape - very wet and just a little messy.  However, Jillian needed some big time "Mommy Tender Loving Care"!

With a flick of the wrist as well as 6 additional back up "Babies" ready particularly for these type of situations, "Baby" was a good as new!! All was well with the world!!
