A Tale of Two Paddies

It's almost time for St. Patrick's day! We are extra excited for St. Paddy's day because Daddyboy will be home! He's been out of town this week and I have to brag that Claudia has been super helpful. I highly recommend the books "Little Mommy" and "Baby Dear", both Golden Books, for any big sister. They have inspired her to be a good big sister / little mommy to Paddy. We've read each book about 200 times this week, so I will be happy to mail you our copies! Our little Paddy will definitely be wearing his green, even if it is just his paci. This is pretty much his accessory of choice these days.

Not sure if I ever shared this... it's (Russell with) the Cross of St. Patrick, kept at the Rock of Cashel in Cashel, Ireland, where St. Patrick baptized King Aengus in 450 A.D. Legend goes that St. Patrick got a little carried away during the ceremony and accidentally stabbed the foot of King Aengus with his staff while administering the baptismal sacrament. Oops!   A St. Patrick-foot-stabbing makes a St. Patrick no-green-pinching into a real non event, right? 

"Little Mommy" with Daddy. Can't wait for you to come home, Daddyboy!

Happy St. Patrick's Day!
