The boy

"The Boy" as his father has named him, is growing so fast ~ and likewise life is moving almost too fast as well... The Boy's newest fascination, joy, and entertainment is his glooorrrious FEET! And it's also just as entertaining to me to watch him attempt to wrangle them in to his mouth.
There's more to update, but there is only so much one-handed typing I can stand at a time...

dogs, dogs, dogs...

So, we were planning on getting a Bassett, but then found out that the woman was a back yard breeder of sorts, and decided not to go there. So, we find an "accidental breeding" at a farm and decide to buy a cocker/retriever pup from this farmer man. We get the pup home and he's acting a little funny, that night he starts squeezing his belly and moaning, the next morning he is face planting while trying to walk. So, I take him to the vet ASAP, and he died a few hours later :( I was pretty bummed about it.... So, we figure out that he died from being compacted with worms, and decide to tell the farmer to take his other dogs in before it happens to them too. He doesn't seem like he's interested in hearing what we have to say, even though it cost us $300 to have a pup die on us... and so I call animal control on him. The sheriff goes out there, and forces the guy to take his pups to the vet, give us our money back, and give us a new vetted dog for free.... works for me. The first puppy was named Guspatcho (via Karl) and now this new puppy is named Abner (also via Karl). We absolutely love him, he's the most well behaved puppy I've ever seen!

Weddings and our boy...

So! It's been a while!
I have had a really busy month - but I'll only touch on a few of the bigger things.
Karl and I had the pleasure of going to Collin and Ciara's wedding earlier this month - and it was absolutely beautiful. Not to mention we had a blast with Justin, Lance, KP, and Michelle - among others at the wedding.
Ethan turned 3 months old - and will soon be 4 months old! Where has the time gone?! He can grab toys, smile, laugh, roll one way, grab his feet, and all other kinds of fun baby things. I can't wait until his next Dr. Appt. to see how big he's gotten!
