Little Boy Blue

Little Boy Blue
Come blow your horn!
The sheep's in the meadow
The cow's in the corn

But where is the little boy
Who looks after the sheep?
Why, snuggled with Teddy Bear
Fast asleep!

Happy Birthday, Sweet Baboo

Baboo in his grandfather's garden
Oh, sure, our baby boy is all grown up but we still think of him fondly as that sunny, almost always smiling, easy going little guy who loved cars, Lego, books, math, soccer, and basketball.
Baboo, reflecting on a radio news broadcast while he was eating breakfast:
"Mommy, why do so many people not want Baby Fay to get a baboon's heart? She'll get the heart AND all the love the baboon had in it..."
In May, there is going to be another baby boy Baboo. If he has half the happy, sweet disposition his Daddy had growing up, the family is really going to enjoy this next adventure.
