This past week our family had the great joy of welcoming another new family member, our second great nephew. Kai Louis was born December 5th, mom and baby are doing well. Though not in our immediate household, we could not be happier for Bret’s nephew Evan, his fiancé Dee and their almost three year old son Landon.
The biggest adjustment has been for Landon, but he is proving to be a very proud, happy big brother. The excitement of Kai’s birth proved to be too much though as the new brothers snuggled for their first nap togetHer. Landon is being very loving and gentle with his new baby brother. We look forward to seeing the boys grow up and watch as their bond strengthens over time.
As for the new family member In our immediate household, puppy Betty is adjusting well in the two weeks since we brought her home. She and Shirley are quickly becoming best friends and playmates. Shirley the first couple days was a little possessive with some of her toys, but already this is not an issue. They are both initiating play with each other, even starting to play tug-of-war. Shirley is being gentle as they do thankfully considering their current size difference. Occasionally Shirley gets in the moment forgetting Betty is still a puppy, swinging her around a rag doll, which Betty actually seems to enjoy. We quickly tell Shirley to stop, which she does right away and they resume play.
Betty had her first experience with a little snow fall we had and appears to love it. They were both eating snow and Betty when walking walked with her tongue out licking the snow. We are glad to see the girls getting along so well and so quickly. Shirley is taking on her new role of big sister as she watches over Betty especially outdoors.
