Guess Missy's updates will go here!

::Sigh:: Missy's "page" isn't working like I wanted it to, I think I have to make posts here. I can't update her tab! Grrr....any blog experts with advice?

Anywho! Missy is very quickly overcoming her timid ways and in turn is totally turning into a puppy! We had a "negative" experience when my boyfriend went to direct her to her food bowl (she and Gracie lose their minds when it's feeding time. Their bowls look the same but are in different corners of the kitchen, some how they still insist on running back and forth between bowls!) she popped a squat, peed all over the floor, sat down in it and started wagging her tail at him! He's patient, didn't yell at her or anything, just continued directing her to her dish... He let her eat and then he gave her a bath, so she's a fresh & clean Miss Miss now! My son went up to say hello to her in the tub, she was more than willing to beg him for an escape route! She's doing great with him! Zero aggression under any circumstances (with people)!

She has tried jumping up & putting paws on the counter tops and tables. She has zero fear when I yell at her to get down. Choosing instead to peek over her shoulder, take one more lick and THEN jump down! It's hard to be mad at her....they were dirty dishes anyway! :D

What else? The night she made a mess in the kitchen I was going to work with her on the leash, but bath time took over, so we will be working on that soon. She still turns into a dead weight, I'm hoping that walking her with Cato will help. He's fantastic on and off the leash and won't leave my side.

This is my son running around beating on kitchen utensils/pots/pans... Poor Missy couldn't get away from him fast enough thanks to the island! She never touched him, just scooted like a squirrel up a tree! She's so cute!

Her breath is improving finally too- thank heavens. With her mouth open, it smelled like something died in her stomach. It was AWWWWFUL(even from across the room!)! She's on Blue Diamond Lamb & Rice, I'll get her on puppy soon, but that's what my dogs were on, so I figured that was better than the $8/40lb Walmart special... She also loves the parsley chews sticks, those are helping!

One Year?!

        How did we get to one stinkin' year?! I'm not the eloquent Martha Stewart blog writer, but holy toledo has this child turned my whole life around! He's my whole world, my whole heart! I'm so blessed to have such an amazing son. His personality is awesome. His sense of humor is fantastic (though random!), the fact he is so happy has made me pretty stinkin' fortunate over this year long journey! We managed to breastfeed for the whole first year, I would have loved to have continued longer, but unforseen circumstances caused us to wean over to milk (Soy, coconut & almond. He'll be vegan until I can educate him to make his own decisions...) except for the occasional nursing when he won't go down for a nap no matter what I do. He's about 29" tall now, not sure of his weight, but that just means it's time for a new carseat! His is a 30" max if I remember correctly, he barely fits it now!
I made him a vegan chocolate cake for his birthday, more specifically for his Sears session to be able to smash his cake! He was pretty neat about it, but I think that's because he was infatuated with the frosting, which promptly put him into a sugar coma and he just kept shoving fistfuls into his mouth! Here is his Highness in all his adorable-ness!

June 23rd, chilling in my lap!

June 28th, he covered himself with his taggy & fell asleep in the car...foot stuck out for temperature control!

From his babysitter & her iPhone! He's so handsome!

Again at daycare, finger painting bananas first thing in the morning!

Crawlin' fool!

June 29th, sitting unassisted!

Duty LAST month, when mom was here, May 20something-th?
