When I say the baby loves the dog more than me, I am totally not kidding. He loves him. LUUUUUVS him. I guarantee “doggie” will be his first word. I think he’s learned to use his hands just so he can pet Brutus. The only other thing he does with them is squeeze, pinch and twist the skin on my chest while he’s nursing. Which, let me tell you, is SUPER DUPER FUN.


Don’t you give me that look. You’ll stand there and you’ll LIKE IT or I’ll find a dog that will. If it keeps the baby from screaming he can ride you for all I care. I’ll buy a tiny saddle and rename you Lightning the Wonder Dog.
