Four-day weekend begins now

So, I have today off, and Torsten is taking it off too, and we're about to head out with his parents, so this won't be much of a post, but I did want to respond to one question in yesterday's comments.

Turns out, Torsten's parents love Montana. Especially his mom, who was the one who was most concerned about being bitten. She will spend ages on the floor petting her, cooing at her, and generally speaking very cute-sounding German baby talk at her.

My favorite part? She calls her "hundchen," which loosely translates to "doglet." How cute is that?

Montana is a big fan of her grandparents, for sure. She's going to go through some serious regression/withdrawal when they leave and she goes back to just getting regular amounts of attention from boring old us.

Happy 4th, everyone! (And happy belated Canada Day to the Canadians!)


  1. I don't know why, but I was so touched when my parents fell in love with SoMi. It was like validation that we had done something right. Have a great, extra long weekend with the in-laws!

  2. Have fun on your adventures today! I owe you an email, I've just lost my mind with this stubborn baby.

  3. Awww, that's really sweet. Have a great weekend! How cool that they get to be here during a holiday.

  4. hundchen! adorbs! glad she's managed not to chew them to little bits ;-)

  5. "Doglet!" That is so sweet and cute.

  6. That's really sweet. I'm glad that lots of surprises are happening on this trip! Enjoy your long weekend. x
