I was remiss in telling you that Cookie was Jamisen’s first dog that he has met. And, I have unfortunately offended my dear niece doggie Samantha who met Jamisen at least 1 week before Cookie did. Whoops! Can I blame my slip on lack of sleep?
Samantha and Toby were so sweet and kind to Jamisen. To tell the truth, they weren’t that impressed with him. I think Samantha probably thought “What’s so impressive about this hairless creature? What’s all the fuss about?!” Toby’s thought process probably went like this “Lake lake grass grass white hairless thing stick stick lake lake grass grass run run lake lake.” As evidenced by the first photo, he had zero interest in Jamisen. That was the best photo we had of Toby and Jamisen – one of Toby’s rump!
We played catch with the dogs at Lake Samish (one of Erik’s fishing haunts). The view from the boat dock turned out really nice. I especially like this photos because it shows us being active, having fun which is something our family seems to excel at (for which I am so thankful).
I love the way the sun is shining down into the camera frame for this photo. Erik, my brother, isn’t a big fan of smiling in photos so this photo is particularly happy for me.
Jamisen is eating his Dad’s hair. Thankfully, he didn’t have any styling products in because those wouldn’t taste delicious.
Me ‘n’ Jamisen on the lawn. Again, I like how the sun is shining through.
And before I end the weekend update, this cow toy is from the generous Kristy Schemrich of Kristy’s Lovely Lathers who brought a whole host of goodies out when she came out for the 2011 Soap Weekend Intensive (if you like Goatsmilk Soap, you simply MUST check out her shop here and if you’d like to sign up for the 2012 session of SWI, you can reserve your spot here). My Dad thinks that it sounds like the low pitch of a child crying to Jamisen and thus the pouty lower lip. I think his little lower lip is adorable and since he was smiling within 3 seconds after the camera was turned off, think the video is adorable too.
Okay, I lied. One more baby video of Daddy reading to him:
