1st Christmas

I know this is my blog, but Mommy, Daddy, & Dakota celebrated my first Christmas this year.  I did a lot of sleeping & occasionally opened my eyes to see what I had gotten, mostly, I enjoyed my swing.  Santa was pretty good to me this year!

I don't know why they insist on all these pictures

Mommy says Santa left me

Gamma finally got my stocking done!
I just want to sleep!

Cuddling mommy
Do not ever put that hat on me again
I really didn't like it!

Rubber Ducky, you're the one....

Everyone had to get in on the first bath time!  Daddy got him squeaky clean, Mommy took pictures, & Dakota watched to make sure everything went smoothly.  

I don't think I like this...
 I don't, I'm cold! 
Touch me again and I'll have to take you out
Now that the water is higher, maybe this isn't so bad...
My heads not big enough
But I am darn cute!
mmm, clean hands

Christmas Eve with Gamma

On Christmas Eve, Daddy, Mommy, & me went up to Gammas house so they could celebrate the holiday with family, & of course, to show me off!  They all had Stew & a great time!

Why are you looking at me like that?
What is with all these pictures?

Posing with Gamma

His 1st Photoshoot

To see Carter in his very first photoshoot, please visit the following

She's Finally starting to warm up...

I went to feed Carter this morning at 6:00 am and Dakota, being the loyal dog she is always gets up with me and comes to lay at my feet while Carter nurses.  When I finished up last night, she lagged and didn't come back to bed with me, and when I woke up this morning, this is what I found....

How Adorable is THIS!  She laid by his crib until I came and woke them both up this morning.

Meeting the Girls

Sadie got to go first... she was a little unsure what this "thing" was...

She liked him much more when she could see him
Dakota came next and she was more excited that mommy was finally home!
But she still seemed pretty happy :)
He is the main interest of the furbabies.  They love him to death.  Dakota comes to bark at us if we let him cry too long & Sadie brings him her toys and sticks her nose right up on him to make sure everything is alright.  

Finally, we were able to leave

Today, we were finally given the OK to go home!  We had to stay a few extra days because Carter lost 10% of his original body weight and was a bit jaundice.  We had to supplement a bit of formula feedings to help get his weight up.  
The happy trio!

Almost Home!
