Mommy friend, Cathy loves to put all the special dates on her calendar and  she had on September 23 as Gotcha Day.  She ask mommy if she was to celebrate it.  Mommy thought, hmmmm,  hmmm, it be a nice day to celebrate but for now, it is something I do not understand.  However, mommy is one to love to  celebrate very special days, with  special meaning and Gotcha was when mommy was formally and legally my mommy on paper and by the court system.

Mommy thought for now, she was to give me extra big hug and say,  “Gotcha.”  She just calls it a special day or special special hug, all our own.   I love hugs, no matter what day.

Mommy thought to take pics of me with my special plushie I got on that day from the judges office.  She chose the one that was original and  one of a kind and cute and cuddly………………. a  big green frog, but I call it “Broccoli.”   That makes it for a very special plushie,  since it is a frog to mommy and it is a broccoli to me!

Ps, I am now five years old, so it is Gotcha day 5, but  mommy only started making it special on this year with the  special “Gotcha Hug.”
















I am only 13 months old on Gotcha Day

Great Falls, Virginia … I was there!!!

by jake on August 26, 2012

For a day when mommy and papa had to go to  Washington DC area, papa drove to  Great Falls, on the Virginia side.  He said, it was the better side, than Maryland.  Mommy and me would not have known the difference, because both of us never been there before.  Papa was there when he was a kid, so he remembered.

Mommy loves the beautiful water.  We also saw three guys and  their boats having fun, travelling down the fall.  It is dangerous and mommy made sure,  I was fully supervised.
