Much to my amazement, Superdude will be one at the end of September. How time quickly flies! As an early birthday present (and as a souvenir of our time here in Bavaria), we bought him a pair of Lederhose, the famous Bavarian/Austrian leather pants. I still need to purchase a shirt to go with the Lederhose, so he borrowed one of Rosebud’s.
Isn’t he sweet in his Lederhose? The word “Bub” by the way is a Bavarian/Austrian word for boy; one Bavarian variant of Bub is Bua which sounds an awful lot like our English word boy.
Lederhosen are tasty!
He certainly looks like a Bavarian, with his fair hair and blue eyes.
Superdude as pleased as can be
Sweetest guy ever
Rosebud wasn’t too sure about her brother at first. Here’s a video of when she first met him, at the hospital, when he was a day old.
She has certainly warmed up to her brother now. When Superdude cries, she often goes to him to see what is wrong. Sometimes she likes to cover him up with a blanket.

And here is one of Rosebud, playing in the puddles:

This video is from another walk we took as a family; Rosebud is especially cute, playing Peek-a-Boo.
And here’s a video of Rosebud from September, where she is playing with her dolly.
