A Giveaway!

Hey Y'all.

Our little Peep continues to surprise us. This past week he's started trying to say "cheese" when you take his photo, he started initiating peek-a-boo, and he is officially walking.

Big brother Baxter

All day yesterday Baxter moped around the house. He would flop himself down at my feet and let out a big sigh, or just sit and stare at me with sad doggy eyes. I actually texted Chris at work to ask if he had fed Baxter before leaving for work because I thought for sure… Continue reading Big brother Baxter
