Update- Life Lately
While awaiting the arrival of the puppies' two-legged cousin, Mom discovered she could quilt on her sewing machine. Since then, the living room has been converted into a quilt making area. The puppies have been offering their services whenever possible. Mr. M helps cut out batting for inside the quilts. Miss M regularly tries to help cut out the flannel that Mom puts on the back of all of the quilts, and Miss S helps out with quality control.
The latest quilt got an approving yawn from Miss S and was deemed suitable for napping. Their cousin, Baby M, apparently agreed with her verdict.
Where did Winter go?
I think that Winter decided that Texas wasn't worth visiting this year. For the past few weeks, it's been cool some evenings and then other evenings we need the air conditioner. The past couple of days, we have been able to wear shorts around the house.
After sitting outside in the afternoon and after a nice brisk walk, Miss M prefers to cuddle up on the couch in the nice air conditioned living room.
This past weekend, Mom left the puppies home with Dad for a few hours to go to a baby shower. The puppies are going to get a brand new two-legged cousin soon. Mom can't wait to see how the puppies react to an actual baby. They love kids, but they have never actually seen a real baby. The closest thing to a baby that they have seen was when we saw a toddler at Petsmart one day. Miss M and Mr. C were walking along with us and saw a group of kids sitting by the lizards. After a few seconds, a little girl who was probably only 18 months old or so, stood up and started walking toward Miss M. Miss M wagged her tail and was excited but didn't know what to do. She was a little scared of the little girl and hid behind my legs.
Mr. M met the neighbor girl in the driveway one day. She is about 4 and was a little bit nervous about him. Mr. M was a perfect gentleman and walked up to her and smelled her and let her pet him. He was super happy- tail wagging all over the place- but he never tried to jump on her. He just sat down and let her pet him on the nose.
So we are really happy that Mom's brother and his wife are expecting a baby and can't wait to introduce the puppies to her.
