An Addition

 The past few weeks have been pretty eventful. We bought a new home, and we added to our family in more ways then one! We had a new addition to the family this weekend. My sister in law had her baby on Saturday! (Hope you don't mind me talking about you in my blog Sis :) ) So we have a beautiful new niece and god daughter. She let me be in the room with her and it was the most amazing experience. Being that I had three c-sections and so has my sister I have never had the experience of seeing a birth. It was pretty exciting and I even cut the cord. Skyler Lynn made her appearance on July 9th at 3:38 pm weighing 8 lbs 7 oz.  and 21 1/2 inches long. She's quite the chunk too. :) And I just love the new baby smell hehe.

Me and Skyler...don't mind my roughness, I had been up since 4 am

In addition to Miss Skyler, we added an addition to our little family. Last weekend we went to the Heritage Fair.... and came home with a new puppy. I'm pretty sure I had a brief period of insanity when we decided to get him because looking back now...two weeks later, I have no idea what I was thinking. lol He's super sweet and adorable though.....but boy is he a pain in the butt. haha. And he likes to bite my toes, boy does it hurt too.  Leo decided he wanted to name him Cain. I have no idea why, just look at that face, nothing about him looks like a Cain. He is just too sweet to have such a tough name. They told us that he is a Chow and Border Collie mix, but I think he has lab in him. Either way we are guessing he's going to get big, although that's what we thought about Molly.

Speaking of Molly, she is having a ball with her new play mate. They wrestle non stop! At first I thought it was cute, now....not so much. They drive me crazy. Just imagine, three kids screaming and fighting and getting into things and top it off with two puppies constantly wrestling all over the house. That's just another normal day in my life. Not to mention we just finally got Molly house broken and now we have a puppy leaving spots all over our brand new carpet.

Thank goodness for Folex, it's  a life saver! I am telling you it is a miracle in a bottle, it has removed everything from pee stains to nail polish from my white carpet. I don't know what I would do with out it!  Here is our little pain in the behind...I mean puppy. He's 10 wks old.

So like I said it's been pretty eventful around here the past few weeks. Saturday we are having our house warming party and then hopefully life will calm down just a bit. Oh, I forgot to mention that I am doing camp during the day so not only are things crazy at home, I deal with crazy all day long. yay!

What perfect new additions! Your niece is beautiful. And, I think I would have been tempted to take home that puppy too--so cute!
