Puppy Lovin

  Still here... waiting for lil Miss Josephine to arrive...

Here is my 36 week belly photo... This was taken Monday... and yesterday I dropped even more... and walking this morning is definitely a lot more painful than it was yesterday and my back is rather crampy... So we'll see... I have another appt on Friday.


We are ready though... hospital bag is packed... carseat is in the car!

I gotta share some sweet puppy love b/c I know once Josephine is born, I'll be posting tons of her... These 2 have really shown some amazing characteristics toward the end here...


In the evenings whenwe are processing clients photos, I occasionally will crash from the long work day. These 2 pile up w/me on the recliner and just cuddle. So sweet!

And some more cuddly photos...



Just the sweetest things these two!

I do have a really funny story to share about Roxy...

So to introduce them to the idea of a baby, we purchased a lil babydoll to carry around and put in Josie's swing and stuff to get them use to the noises and the "baby"... well the 2nd night we started this, we put the "baby" in the swing in the living room. Let it run for a bit and turned it off. Kept "baby" in there though.. and watched a movie.. then went to bed. Well, we were waiting for Roxy to hop in the bed w/us and we couldn't find her. So we go out to the living room and there she was sitting, in the dark... sitting in front of the swing w/her back to it staring at us... Basically telling us.. "Hey, you fogot the "baby"... So Jsoh picked "baby" up and carried it to Josie's room and laid it in the crib as Roxy followed him and then Roxy ran to our room and jumped in the bed with me.

Talk about maternal instincts! It was so great to see that she already "gets it".

Well that is all for today. My posts have been rather scattered with all the preparing but we will update the blog when I go into labor!

    Dogs really do the coolest things when is comes to protecting babies/kids. Alex follows me everywhere and when I go outside she waits for me by the door. But when Dalton was a baby, he and I were the only ones home and I but him down for a nap and was on the front porch planting flowers. I had the monitor on the porch with me but I stuck my head in the front door just in case. I thought it was strange that Alex was not begging to be with me. No, she was camped outside the nursery door! Like "hey you are not supposed to leave this baby alone so I am picking up your slack."
    I am 35wks and 1 day - go to the Dr. tomorrow!! We are so close to having these girls!

    back cramps are probably light contractions, if they get worse you are getting Josie soooon! my friend had back pain and she didn't think any of it until she couldn't stand them no more and than thought hmmm maybe I will not have tummy contractions, which in her case she didn;t just her back. thinking of you!

  4. Almost time...
    I hope everything goes completely smoothly. Excited to see you're little bundle.
    And so glad that the other fur babies are ready too.

  5. I have loved reading your blogs. Best of luck to you. Good luck to you. Yes, the dogs and your little girl will be great buddy's

  6. Awww... The furbabies are just so cute!
    Hopefully Josephine will be here really soon. I know the hardest part (well, other than labor) is the day to day anticipation of waiting for the arrival.
    Good luck and lots of prayers for good news on your appointment Friday.

  7. awwww how cute!! My little pup used to lay under the baby swing all the time and would follow us around when BB was really little and when he'd wake up in the middle of the night, she would go in his room and sit at the side of his crib until one of us arrived in there to feed him..sooo sweet!

  8. {{{{OH ROXY}}}} That is so precious!
    By the way HOW did you get so lucky to have such a cute belly with no stretch marks? Shoot...I think if I had only carried one I still would of had stretch marks.
