We Brush Our Teeth

Now that Ridley has six teeth (and number seven is on the way), every
night after we have our "solid foods dinner" we brush Ridley's teeth.
He LOVES it.

We get out his baby Eeyore toothbrush, his floride-free baby/toddler
toothpaste, and then mommy brushes his teeth and gums while Ridley
grabs the toothbrush and tries to do it himself. So then he gets to
brush his own teeth for a minute, which usually consists of chewing on
the toothbrush.

And then when we take the toothbrush away and say "all done!" he
screams because he doesn't want to stop. :)

Softly, Gently

We have been teaching Ridley about petting the kitties (specifically
that we pet kitties nicely, not pull their fur).

Yesterday evening I stepped out of the living room into the kitchen to
grab a glass of water, and when I came back, Tweak was sprawled across
the couch and Ridley was standing right next to him. This alone was a
surprise; Tweak usually dashes away when he sees Ridley coming.

But more surprising was what Ridley was doing.

Using his index finger and thumb, Ridley was very, very gently petting
Tweak's ear.

Tweak loved it. :)

The Joy of Pepsi Cola

After a good walk on a hot summer day, Ridley knows how to cool down
and relax.

Summer Outing

Today, Ridley and I needed to go to Target. So we bundled Ridley up in
his sweatshirt, jeans, socks and shoes to face the 57 degree mid-July
