Our Ever-Expanding Family

And no, I'm not just talking about my waistline.

There's also my milk-makers. Is it normal for me to already not feel like sleeping on them because they feel like rocks? Just curious.

Okay, but really, I meant to have this post be about GROMIT! And in case you don't know, that's our new dog. You see, I really meant to post more now that I've told everyone we're expecting...BUT...first there was the morning, I mean, ALL DAY EVERY DAY sickness, and then we got this puppy! So yes, Gromit is our new puppy, and yes, James did insist upon that name.

And yes, I really did want to post pictures but that is just not in the cards for today.

We got him a little over a week ago, when he was 6 weeks old, so he's still pretty tiny, but he won't be for long. He's half English mastiff and half Great Pyrenees, so he is technically a "Giant" dog. He looks all mastiff so far, and we're sort of hoping that part will stick. Pyrenees are great dogs too but more prone to wandering. Either way, we're superexcited about him and he's smart and fun and cute and, in case anyone's curious, GREAT practice for having a baby. He weighed 7.5 pounds when we got him, and I had to carry him a lot that first day, and then my arms were tired....he wakes us up at night a little bit to go potty, although not NEARLY as much as a human baby....and there are definitely a few sibling rivalry issues we can work through now. =)

Okay, gotta run. Just wanted to check in and say WOOF!
