My grandparents went to Baltimore and I got the t-shirt

Sam asked us, while we were at her graduation, to deliver little boy presents to San Diego.

What is it? they later asked as I handed the first out of my bag.

Dunno, your guess is as good as ours.

And so Hudson is the big man on campus (got this picture today). And for Parker, a stuffed plush Happy Pill that laughs when you push its button.  Loudly.

This brought up the family lore of the toy fire truck that my father-in-law admitted to killing the siren on a week after Christmas only when the small recipient of said beloved bright red truck was well into being a grown man.

“Water,” I grinned.

Well, they would see. No need for now, hey, this is cute. Take a shrill pill and call them in the morning.

and an adorable shirt it is — Mr Cute has a toy that his daddy removed the battery from very shortly after he received it — it made a terrible sound that made all the critters in the house nuts!

What a beautiful baby! Which reminds me of the story, which may be true, of the fellow who could not bring himself to say “Beautiful baby” if the kid was not. But he came up with an undeniable phrase that would not be insulting: “It’s a baby!”

Very sweet – both the gifts and the babe.

Love Hudson as big man on Johns Hopkins’ campus. Looks like possibly medicine.
