Pets, Poses, Puking, and Puncture Wounds

My sister has long accused our rather mellow dog of being a Dog Shaped Rug. Lil' Tank demonstrated this nicely by resting his laurels on the dog's laurels...

And Mollycat has done her part at being remarkably patient with a toddler trying to sit on her...

Along with being able to point to nose, eyes, and bellybutton upon request, Tank has found his tongue too.

The Bub also has enjoyed trying on all his hand me down winter clothes, he's wearing them baggy this year for that grommetty snowboarder look.

So that's the good news. The rough stuff is that last week Tankster has his first barfing sickness, and ralphed once a day for three days. Then he had some epic diaper fillers for the rest of the week. Now Momma is a bit under the weather, Poppa was out of town (but is fortunately back now), the car battery went dead and poor Mollycat got an abscess on her neck from a fight with the neighbor cat and had to have a drain installed. We're limping along, but I think the end is in sight!

Poor Miss Mollycat... and Miss Suzie and little Tanklet as well, it sounds! The Puker made it through ok though?
I just posted a teeny thang about Asher's newfound love of his bellybutton too... funny how parallel kids this age are, huh? It's been (literally) charming the sox off me to watch him pull his shirt up and point to his wee button, especially as his other current pet part has been "toes" (hence the removing of my sox so he can point to mine as well). He removes his own sox and shoes all by himself (frequently). We're still working on "nose".

Suzie, If, as you say, the end is in sight, that means that you are bent over double! My sister Sue and her HH had it last week too, hope all of you get better soon.
Love,
Dad
