That is the question that Roger asked me this morning. We have a new little girl staying with us.
This is Miss Mia, she is three years old and a real sweethart. She came from a home where she was love and spoiled just as doxies are suppose to be. Unfortunately a baby came into the house and Mia had trouble sharing the attention. This happens so many times to this breed. We have been lucky through the years. When we had our first Doxie he adjusted well to Rich's arrival. Then when Rob came along it was like, ok whatever. The rest of the Dahlenburg pack are a little unsure about this new arrival.
Lucy is the undisputed queen here at Ladybug Cottage. She is very short on patience with Mia. Of course Mia was the queen at her house, so the two queendom's are colliding. So far it is a bit of a power struggle but I think they will each figure out their place.
Sweeney would really, really like it if she would just stay off my lap. Which brings us back to Roger's …
Yesterday I was looking at blogs and I came across one that spun me back 34 years. It seems this blogger has just found out that a baby is on the way and it is due on July Seventh. I thought back 34 years when I was feeling that same wondrous change in my body. My husband and I had wanted to add a little one to our family for awhile. I was beginning to despair of it ever happening, but a trip to the doctor proved me wrong. When I went I remember being afraid, afraid that I was, and afraid that I wasn't. The doctor did the exam and then asked if I would like to hear the heartbeat. The sound seemed to me like a small bird just flapping his wings. The tears of joy came to my eyes and I could not believe the miracle of it all.
I tried to figure out a fun way to tell Roger it was really going to happen. I decided to stop at Wal-Mart and buy a little outfit to hand to him when I walked in the door. I knew in my heart and without a doubt that this baby was a little b…
Wow how can it be the last part of October. It seems as though school started and I went into hiding or something. I have some happy news to share. I am going to be a Grammy again in April. This guy is going to be a big brother.
I also decided to retire at the end of this year. I have worked at Cannon School for a lot of years and for the most part it has been a wonderful place to be. Most of the people that I worked with for so many years are gone now. They have moved on to the next phase in their life and I am ready for that too. I have many plans for my time.
I am going to spend time with these two.
And taking care of this, amazing how many things I can see that need to be done.
I plan to spend a lot of time in my sewing room.
Bodie and I will be able to spend more time together!
But mostly I am going to take a deep breath, and enjoy God's beautiful world and the gifts that he has given me.
