Lulu and her puppy

Most of you probably know that Hubby and I got a puppy in September of 2009. We got married that July, and he had promised me I  could get a dog after the wedding. After looking and looking, we decided to get a black lab from the Humane Society.

I’m allergic to some kinds of dogs, so we drove all the way to Buffalo (MN) to meet Tank. I fell in love that day, but to be on the safe side we went home to see if I would get sneezy. Since I didn’t, we drove back the next day and picked him up.


Watch out baby food, real food’s making an entrance

I’ve blogged before about making baby good for my daughter. She’s had lots of veggie purees, a few meats and lots of fruits. Her favorite foods are pieces of fruit, and those baby berries are definitely up there too. But until today, she hadn’t eaten the same thing as hubby and me for dinner.

That’s mostly because I don’t usually cook very good meals for hubby and me to eat. I think I mentioned it before, but I really dislike grocery shopping. I love to cook, but by the time I get home from the store I have usually lost my motivation. So hubby and I eat out a lot. Or we end up making boxed mac and cheese or frozen pizzas.

Today was different. More

Dog: baby’s role model

A friend of mine had a baby two weeks ago, and hubby and I brought our little girl to meet them this week. When we arrived, we were greeted by the tiniest baby I’ve ever seen. Little O is only 5 pounds and 10 ounces at two weeks old, but she’s healthy and perfect. She has those beautiful wrinkly baby feet and a teeny tiny little nose.

When we introduced my nine-month-old daughter to O, she smiled and gingerly put her hand on the little baby’s shoulder. That’s my girl, caring and gentle.
