a new baby

last week we got a new baby. his name is harper. sawyer named him and we had no say in the matter. we have no idea where she got it. when we ask her she says, "the puppy told me," but this was a week before we even got him. sawyer has always been scared of dogs. like hyperventilate, scale your body to get away from them scared. so we figured if she is ever going to get over that the only way will be to have a dog in the house. mason on the other hand loves dogs. he has giggled constantly since we got harper. he loves to play with him. they tell him they are his mommy and daddy. and mason pokes and pets and hug and kisses the poor puppy constantly, especially when he is asleep.

i wasn't so sure about having another baby right now - you know the potty training, crying at night, constantly watching so all your shoes stay intact. but he has been a good dog so far. he is really sweet and lets the kids do whatever. he has not had a single accident in the house yet!! not even at night in his crate. but he does cry at night. a lot. my sleep hours have diminished quite a bit since we got him. he even wakes the kids up since he is so loud. and he loves to chew on everything, especially shoes. so nothing is safe right now. but he is adorable and the kids love playing with him, and he will grow out of it soon!

oh.my.word. i can't handle it. that is the cutest puppy ever. it almost makes me want one...oh wait. no. you are brave! but it will definitely help sawyer. i was always afraid of dogs! we had outdoor ones, but that didn't really help. i'm sure you're doing the right thing.
