…baby in the family! My cousin Michel, gave birth to Madeline just over a year ago. Michel and husband Jonathan live up in the Bay area so it wasn’t until this visit home, which coincided with Michel and Aunt Sylvia’s visit to the islands, that I was finally able to meet Madeline.
Madeline’s the first hapa baby in our family and she’s just adorable. Absolutely, incredibly, over the top, adorable. She’s staying with my grandma this visit. The same grandma who also takes care of Buddy. Remember Buddy? He’s going to make thirteen years in just a month. So fast.
He caught the doggie flu last week, but after a visit to the doctor (thank you, Vincent for bringing him to the vet!) and a quite a bit of medication, he’s back to normal. The relationship between Madeline and Buddy is utterly hilarious. I suspect there’s a touch of jealousy on Buddy’s part. Understandable though, the little fellow is so used being the center of attention, it must be hard for him to comprehend why anyone would rather fawn over this little girl than himself, hehe.
Congrats, Kelly on your acceptance into UC Hastings Law School! I’ll miss having you on the east coast ^_^
