Oh Jake-jake

Last night we spent our last few hours with our loving Jakey-boy. The old guy was 13.5 years old but nobody in this house was ready to say goodbye. Luckily he went really fast and didn't seem to suffer. Yesterday when I was leaving for work he was out hunting, peeing on all of his favorite trees, and eating Q's breakfast that made it onto the floor. A perfect morning for our lovable flatcoat!

Jake came into my life as a package deal with Denis. So everyday that Denis and I have spent together has included the puppy dog eyes above. I am so happy that I got to spend 9 years with Jakenstein Applesauce. In his last 19 months he was the best big brother to little Q. He was so patient, loving and damn he just put up with a toddler pulling his tail, wanting to give him kisses and he always had a little one on hand to give him a "Jakey nummi".

There won't be a day when we won't think about Jake. Love you

Lovin' the evening walk

Can you see all those teeth? Yes, it has finally happened. Our little vampire has grown himself some more teeth. Just take a look at all those chompers. Luckily he is being nice to mama with his new front teeth.

Big news around here ... Q is sleeping like a champ. I was so nervous to put it in writing thinking that I might jinx myself, but it is official Q is a sleeping maniac. It only took about 10.5 months but it is so glorious to sleep through the night again.

During the last month Q was able to spend a lot of time with family and friends. I wish it could have been under better circumstances, but at least we got to spend lots of quality time with Auntie Coco and Nanna. Finally my boy has spent some time in Capitola. I sure hope we can spend a lot more time there next summer.

My little Vampire

All my mama wants is my two front teeth!
I couldn't help but post this picture. It is one of my all time favorites and just look at those fangs! Has anyone ever seen a set of teeth like these? We are so lucky to have such a happy, happy boy. He is always smiling, usually laughing and always on the move.

~Height - I have no idea
~I think he is going to be left-handed
~He can give you High-Five
~Still a bfing champ with no end in sight
~He loves to feed himself - especially avocado, zucchini and carrots. He also likes sweet potato, applesauce, peaches and butternut squash
~He has finally slept through the night (this is hands down the most exciting thing to happen around here in 9 months)
~Has four teeth, two bottom and two fangs!
~He loves to laugh at Jake and torment the poor old dog
~He is a very happy baby boy with big smiles all the time
