It’s been a little while since I’ve done any sort of update, and since things constantly change around here, I thought I’d catch everyone up a little. I figure updating on puppies, babies and kittens was probably the jumping off point.
So… you might remember we got Kipling a few weeks back. He’s our sweet black lab mix, who has literally turned into a holy terror but he’s so cute it’s hard to stay mad. He’s SO smart, but he’s SO busy. I forgot how tough a puppy can be. He is 11 weeks old yesterday. He’s grown quite a bit since the day we brought him home. He is crate trained at this point, though he will wake me up if I don’t come get him when he wants me to in the morning by basically screaming and crying like he’s dying. haha He is still having occasional accidents in the house, though he seems to understand I’d prefer he’d go outside. He is getting more of a schedule down so that’s helping in the potty training department a lot. Only problem is he is getting too big for his puppy crate and now it’s time for me to drag the big gun out, which is fine, but we are moving in two weeks, so I’d prefer to wait to set it up in the new place. So yeah.
This precious kiddo is 5 1/2 months, and I cannot figure out where the time has gone. He’s almost got crawling down, but he’s scooting himself all over the place, mostly backwards. He gets up there and rocks back and forth and has even attempted lifting his hands. He amazes me constantly. He can roll over from either way now – back to front or front to back. He’s found his voice and loves to share it with anyone who will listen. First word has to be coming soon.
Oh yeah, and he can do this…
Yep, totally unassisted, totally on his own. So far his length seems to be around 3 minutes before he gets a little wobbly, but honestly it’s hard to tell – because he gets distracted and wants to go find something else to explore. This kid is unbelievable. I seriously don’t think I could love him any more. Oh yeah, and he has a tooth. His bottom left tooth has poked its way through and is just about halfway up. This past month has literally been full of milestones for him!
So just about the time Carsyn has decided he’s ready to explore the world, and get up and crawl and even stand at times… my daughter did this…
She’s cute isn’t she? I mean, honestly I can’t blame her. This is Cici and she is the newest addition to our crazy family. She was the runt of her litter so she’s still so tiny. She looks pretty big in this photo so let me try another angle.
Do you see the size of the baby bottle with her? She’s so tiny!
So yeah, that’s what’s been up at our end. Plus the heat. And summer. And I’m so ready for Fall. And school has started here, so that’s crazy too. But I do so love my crazy and all the life events that happen because of it. So… all is good.
Hope you have a great weekend!
