A background on the nickname "Foofs", Jake's Nickname "Bird"

I guess I should tell you how that nickname came about, because I'll probably be calling her foofs (and Jake "Bird") thru the year. We used to sing the song "Little Bunny Foo Foo" to Olivia. Then we thought it'd be more funny if we sang "Little Livvy Foo Foo" and the nickname spiraled from there and was shortened to Foofs.
Now, I used to call Jake, Jaybird when he was little. My sister calls her daughter Julia "bird" and I always thought it was so cute. Well, Jake's nickname, much like Olivia's, became shortened to just "Bird" I call him Bird so often, I don't even think about it. I can already see it now, Jake's name in lights, Jake "The Bird" Bulloss. Oy...Maybe not...

Meet Pirate Foofs

So, not sure when this all started (and btw, these pics weren't taken today-I surely hope it's not breaking the rules LOL) but she started squinting up one eye when we'd take her picture. Then we started saying "No Pirate Eye!" and she then started going "arghhhhhhhhh" when she squinted as well LOL. This is one pirate I won't make walk the planks =)
And can I say, God love the child who, when you go into their room after their nap, all sweaty and gross from working out in a sports bra and leggings (yep, you may need to scratch your eyeballs to erase that image off your corneas lol) points to your war torn, stretchmarked from whoo ha to whoo hee after giving birth to 2 kids belly and says "Mommy's belly. So pretty" and gives you a hug.
Now THAT'S Love =)
