Pet Shoppe, Chez Moi
Yesterday, my favorite peeps came to visit. Stacy was puppy sitting, and Elise had never seen the neighbor’s puppies yet. So, Cindy brought all three kids over and we had a great time. We had planned to take them for a walk up to the park, but the weather, which had been beautiful until 20 minutes before they got here, turned sour and started to rain. Instead, the puppies got a bath. All five doggies. (I can’t write doggies without hearing it with a soft g the way Cayden always says it, like dodge-ies.)
While the puppies got their baths and grooming, I got a dose of Evan. He smiles all the time, makes cute cooing and giggling noises, and is trying to sit up all the time. He hates when he can’t see what’s going on around him. I think his brother was that way too.
Cayden is getting so big too. His language is more mature, full sentences, and I think his favorite question these days is “What you guys doooooingggg?” Or it could be “Why?”. My favorite statement is, “I want a huuuuuuuggg.” Either way, it melts me and I find it adorable.
Elise is so big now. Gone are the little preschooler mannerisms. She’s all school girl now. She’s left princesses behind for High School Musical. And she adores horses. When I see her in the picture below helping with the puppies, I told Cindy I could seriously see her as a veterinarian when she’s grown.
Now, I’d better hurry and post these pictures because I have to head up to their house for some more fun watching the two older ones while mommy and daddy go house hunting.

Little helpers. I love the innocence in these faces.

All clean with Tiffy.
Look at those eyes.
Look closely, there’s a puppy in that towel.
