Baby For Our Baby




With all the recent talk about our impending bundle of joy, I've neglected to showcase our other new baby- an 8 month old Boxer named Fritz. I named him that because Boxers are German and, believe me, he's on the fritz. He is the cutest little guy EVER!!! True to puppy from, he's a real handful and Gabe hates him. He wants me to give him away but he's a really good dog so I just implore him for patience. We adopted him from poor living conditions and he's just trying to get up to speed. The previous owners were not up to the puppy task and had kept him in his kennel constantly since they brought him home at 8 weeks. They even let him potty in there which poses a problem for me because kennel training is my preferred puppy-breaking method. He's really doing great. It was so funny because Gabe said, "I didn't know puppies were so much work!" It was at this moment that I became doubly determined to keep the dog. I think it will be good practice for him for the human baby. Still, if anyone has some stellar Boxer training tips, I would appreciate it. Isn't that top picture cute!!!? You can see how gray Lexi has gotten; her face use to be black. Sweet old girl!

1. I hate talking on the phone. It feels antisocial.

2. I long for a fresh, bouncy haircut but I'm terrified that if I go any shorter than my shoulder blades, I'll be forced to revisit the harrowing days of my sixth grade mushroom cut.

3. Since the whole pregnancy thing, I have anti-nesting syndrome. I have lost any and all desire to clean my house. I fear my husband may kill me.

4. I'm too tired to read and keep up with my classes this semester so I'm contemplating having my mom do all of my reading and writing papers for me. It's a constant struggle for me to resist this temptation.

5. I'm afraid of prisons. I can barely stand to drive by them because of the high concentration of really bad men in there. I think on some unconscious level, I'm scared there will be a spontaneous jail break at the exact moment that I'm stuck in traffic and I'll be forced to drive across Mexico with hardened criminals.

6. I want to spend my retirement starting and running a no-kill animal shelter. See www.bestfriends.org to get an idea of what I'm talking about.


Let's go Janae, Cristina, Jen, Loni, Logan and KJ!
