- isn't afraid of anything it seems, slightly wild and crazy like his papa

He's slimmed down quite a bit in these last few months, and spends the majority of his days outside on the porch, in the yard or at the park/zoo/botanical gardens.  He loves to be naked and dirty and I don't mind letting him be so.  Some people think I'm crazy, but what is more fun then sitting naked in a giant mud puddle!
