A few weeks ago Millie, Brooks and I went to pay a visit to Dr. Denmark for her birthday. We took her some beautiful gerber daisy’s to keep next to her bed as well as some pictures from our last visit. I think she really enjoyed the visit as much as we did! She even asked if she could hold Brooks for the picture! 🙂 Hope you all enjoy! (Brooks is 5 months here and Millie is almost 2 years.)
Millie and I went to visit her 2 years ago if you remember from this blog entry: https://millieavery.wordpress.com/2008/10/01/dr-denmark-said-it/
The other day we decided to take our usual spring fever selves to the park! I had already taken Millie and Brooks a few times during the week and could not get Millie to swing. She is/was afraid to go high! I guess it’s that initial feeling of loosing your stomach the first time you swing. She has never been the type of kid who likes to be thrown way up in the air either! Anyways, we met some other kids at the park the day Stephen went with us! I guess it just took a little nudge from some fellow “play-grounders” to help Millie overcome her fear of gliding through the air while attached to two long chains! She now loves to swing and for this we are delighted! She overcame a fear which makes us proud!
PS. Today I am blogging during nap time ONLY because I have both kids down at the same time!!! I love when I get days like this!!
Beau is a female labradoodle and she is 10 weeks old! Her mom is a black lab and her dad is a standard white poodle. She is by far the sweetest and smartest dog I’ve ever owned! (I have only owned two other dogs besides her and that was Tripp_ our yorkie & Caroline our lab-Caroline is pretty smart too though!). We had our yorkie Tripp for 4 years and just recently found him a wonderful owner. After four long years of trying to train him to go potty and the “other” outside we decided it was time to part ways. 😦 That breed dog is just not good around children either. We caught him snipping at Millie a few times also.
So this brings us to getting Beau! She will eventually be trained on the electric fence and is the perfect “buddy” for Caroline to frolick with outside! All in all I think it was a good decision and Millie thoroughly enjoys having dogs around as does Stephen. 🙂 I guess the old saying goes, “what Millie-Mae wants, Millie-Mae gets!”
I am thinking of adding pet photography to my portfolio???
