I think Oliver gets more hugs and kisses than any other baby on this planet. He is loved and adored that's for sure. He had to get three shots a few days ago. Rather than wait to give him his prize for being a brave boy, the nurse gave him his toy and lollipop before to help him be brave. He only cried during the shot, and walked out of the office all on his own!
Oliver wanted to try on sunglasses, so Annalyn obliged. As you can see, he thought he was so cool!
My kids' latest hobby is burning things with a magnifying glass. They had a huge log burning just a few minutes ago. We had to go out and put out the fire with a bucket of water. You can say that I squelched their fun.
I'm back to trying to feed our family more fruits and veggies. It is so hard to change eating habits. Not so much for me, but some of the kids won't budge. It sure makes it hard. I am trying to get in shape and lose some weight too. I'm not even going to blog about it until I have been successful at it for a while.
I took Jonny to the doctor so his bee sting reaction could be recorded in his health history. It was the only way I could request an Epi-pen. The doctor actually prescribed two so we are set to go in case of an emergency. His foot is still a bit swollen even after a week, but she said it looks ok.
Little Guy has had a rough week. One night he woke up and couldn't go back to sleep. It was probably the commotion outside since the dogs woke me up too. When I went outside at 4:30 in the morning, I couldn't find Dolly our white, little dog anywhere. She was gone. Poof. Vanished into thin air without a trace. The side gate was shut, and there is no sign of her. Of course I couldn't go back to sleep. I looked all over the yard thinking that perhaps she died. She is not a wanderer and with their little doghouse right next to our backdoor under the patio the dogs are always close by. Still no trace of her. Later in the day I went down to the mailbox to see if someone had posted a found poster of Dolly. Instead I found three lost posters of picture of dogs that all looked like Dolly. Three small, white, fluffy dogs have also went missing in the last month.
The kids searched the neighborhood, but still no trace.
We are all very sad.
Coyotes? Owls? Dog nappers?
The saddest thing is that Misty our other dog really misses her.
Not sure what we are going to do? Give her to my Aunt who has the small dog that Misty used to live with when my grandfather had the dogs? Get another bigger size female dog so she won't be lonely? I just don't know. For now, we are left wondering, and mourning.
It is so weird. When we drive somewhere I can't help but scan the neighborhood hoping to catch a glimpse of her.
