The puppies turned a week old last Saturday and are growing like weeds on miracle grow! I do believe they have doubled in size!
Maggie is a really good Mamma. She re-arranges the nest once a day, is very attentive to their needs, and even lets me watch her do everything! She is eating twice the normal amount of food but still seems skinny (maybe because I'm so used to her looking fat!).
The puppies eyes should begin to open this week, something that I cannot wait for! It's so exciting to watch the progress that they make each day! What is it about babies (human or animal) that people are drawn to? Is it the total dependancy or the sweetness?
Moving along~ I had a "situation" in my room last night...
I was hoping to get some reading done, but I found Tristan attempting to relax on my bed. He said he was doing "yoga" but I'm not sure it was relaxing. It looks rather painful!
Sayre was also in my room... need I say any more?! He has officially hit the goofy stage and it's almost painful to watch! :o) His appearance in the picture is one that we see more and more these days. Sigh... this stage only lasts two or three years.
Today is Sawyers third birthday! He and I had a "tea party" this morning. We made hot chocolate and colored until it was time for me to attend to practicing. I think he really enjoyed me spending time doing something that he can do, as he conversed a little more than normal!
He is such a joy and blessing to our family!
