K said to M at dinner last night - "Look at Lucy she is being such a good dog." She was lying there beside the table sleeping while poor neglected (ha ha) Santana was being annoying and eating the food out of M's hand practically.
M looked down at Lucy and stopped any movement. He said very seriously and in a very quiet whisper "Shhhh Daddy. Lucy is asleep." He looked from K to me and back again. He was dead serious. K and I were fighting from laughing. I think I actually squeaked. Any noise we made, M would hold his finger to his lips and say "Shhhh, Lucy is sleeping. Be quiet, Mommy & Daddy." We finally both bust out laughing and M smiled and wagged his finger at us.
Lucy woke up at this point and M looked SO relieved to have Lucy up. He yelled "Lucy's up!"
He has been really into interacting with the dogs much more. He always noted them and liked them but now he wants them to be his "playmates" and he takes care of them most of the time. He wants to feed and pet them or give them hugs & kisses. It is really very cute and we love that he loves them so much! A boy and his dogs... Awwww.
