So my final gift wasn't too bad. I got a dollar store calendar of dogs. There are a couple of cute dogs throughout the year, so that's great. And a dollar store wooden keepsake shadow box. I would have peed my pants with excitement over it when I was in grade school. So not bad. The best news? She spelled my name right on my final gift. Miracles do happen. I chalk it up to it's better to give than receive. The person I had loved her stuff, so that's all that matters.
And now for a cuteness update. Our kids have gained 2 pounds apiece! I am so very happy about that. GROW, grow, grow!!!!! I'm tire of the puppy stage, but dang are they cute. I specifically want their digestive tracts to grow. If we could start getting full nights of sleep, it would be amazing. You never know when a night will be good with only one mid-morning pit stop, or bad with multiple. I've never needed to take so many naps in my life.
Jesse rules the world. She's going to be a very good Alpha dog some day. I will be looking into agility training classes for her and I to go to when she's older. This dog can hunt! Well, she loves to find ways through things that just amaze me at least. If she can really hunt, we will never know.
Our little boy is still nameless. It will happen soon. We don't want to just pick something just for the sake of picking something. We want something that suits his big spunky feisty personality. And doesn't sound stupid when calling for him. He LOVES playing in the snow, chewing on his sister, and escaping his fortress/cage. For that, we have nick-named him Houdini. What's really funny is that if we catch him climbing over and we yell at him to Get Down, he does!! The name will happen soon, no worries.
It's not like either of them have a vocabulary of even one word yet. And now for proof of the cuteness.
