Why Dogs Tenaya?

Well, i hope everyone here knows me pretty darned well. If not, well then im sorry to surprise you all! But i am by no means, perfect!

Then i stumbled upon a group. With real people whom have been through similar situations. Not entirely exact, but pretty close. And here i observe an older fellow with a well behaved dog. And of course, me being the person i am, do not approach him in front of the group. Afterwards, i speak to him. We speak about our lives in general. But yet he has a pleasant grin on his face. So i ask him why!

He pets his pup softly and says, you have no idea until you have a dog love you for whom you are… He smiled, and walked away. As if he had a secret in his pocket. I have yet to see him since….

So the dog thing overwhelmed me. I have since visited many petstores, watched our neighbors with their dogs, and still didn’t quite get it.

Then Macy came home to me. My beloved. Macy.

Like my toddler, she doesnt care if i fix my hair or put make up on. As long as she can sit in my lap. She doesnt care if i wear the nicest clothing, or if im the best person in the world, as long as i pull the tangles from her beard. She doesnt even mind that i pull the tangles from her beard, as long i love her….

She is patient throughout the day, while i tend to my kids and cleaning my home. And she never asks for anything at all. She is fed, and loved. And get her cuddles. And when i go to bed at night, she is there by my side, with nothing but love

Can someone please explain to me why, why do i deserve such love?

The new Guy…. =)

So the new guy is here! Yay! And getting along very well with everyone. He seems to have attached himself to chase in particular… Other than that, there are the Auston issues. Which i dont think im willing, or ready to post about now.

But either way, here are some pictures of Mr “Thom Yorkie” (named by Chad)

2 years later…

So, for those of you that have been following my blog since we started the IVF process, it has now been 2 years and 2 months since Chad said yes to conceiving our child! =) I can still remember that day as if it were yesterday. I was on top of the world, full of joy… Just imagining what our child would look like, be like, ect.

And now, here we are… 26 months later, with a 16 month old little girl. We went through the crazy roller coaster of conceiving her in April of that year (via IVF), and having her much too early. Many many trips to the ER…. And the day she was born, i didnt even know who she was, because she was whisked away to NICU so darned quickly. I can remeber crying waddling into the NICU begging the nurses to point me to my child.

And then many many months (now over a year) of conifining her from other children to keep her from those nasty nasty germs that preemies can not be around. And still even now, i dont take her out during the cold season. I hardly take her out at all, in fear of those NASTY germs!! I happily nursed her for 10 months, and sometimes she still has to peek to see if there is anymore. LOL.

Now come this April, we can celebrate! We can be FREE! No more RSV shots. No more confinement… We still have to be precatious of sick kids, but she can actually be OUT and ABOUT without mama being worried to death that she will pick up something from another kid.

We cant wait to start the next chapter in her life, watching her socalize and make friends. It has been so hard to be couped up alone. She has learned so much the past 16 months, but i cant wait to see her giggle at the park with her new friends!!!

Thank you everyone for all of your support and love during the last two trying years of my life. It has been so hard, but it was worth every moment!!!

Love and Hugs.

A crafty day!

So ive had all these silly patches set aside for Chase’s brag vest. But i decided to use something else for a brag vest. Something TOTALLY different. I think it came out great! It took me all day, working around the kids and the pup, and constantly changing thread colors to match!

And she has a NEW LOVE for jewelry! She puts on Summer’s necklaces all day long! Its so darned adorable! Time for Melody to get her very own necklaces, but for now this is her fav! Cant get decent pics these days with all the wiggling, but you get the idea!! She loves to play dress up with mama, and i think mama loves it more 😉
OH and she loves to ride the vacuum now too!
