I missed posting last week.
Gus, our dog, has been missing since September 9- almost 2 weeks. I look on Craigslist, Petfinder, and all the shelters around almost every day. We have an ad on Craigslist and we have filed a lost dog report with the local shelter. I am trying to keep up hope that he will come back, but it has been almost 2 weeks and I am starting to think that we will not see him again. I love that dog. He was my Christmas present the first year we were married. Savannah is really missing him too. She now thinks when someone is gone they have run away and are not coming back. It is so sad to hear her talk about him being gone. We will keep looking for him. I have heard of people have their dogs return after months. Daniel had a dog gone for over 6 weeks. There is definitely still a big chance he could come back on his own or we will find him at a shelter. Hopefully, there is someone out there who finds him and calls us- our number is on his collar.
Avery has started to crawl with her belly off the ground all the time and is getting pretty fast at it. She is pulling herself up on furniture and getting into everything! It is hard to believe that she will be 8 months old in less than a week. She eats EVERYTHING! She is not picky at all and loves to eat table food. Ave is developing quite the personality and is a happy baby almost 100 percent of the time. She is now sleeping pretty much through the night (past 6 am) without nursing. She had her first ear infection last week. Poor Baby! We have finished the round of antibiotics and hopefully she will not be like her sister and have recurring ear infections.
Savannah has become quite imaginative and has increased her vocabulary and syntax. She amazes me daily with her knowledge. She loves to watch movies and sing, and she has become quite the little “mommy” to anything that could be construed as a baby. She loves to help in the kitchen and any time I am doing anything she is right there “watching”.
We are starting to make progress on getting estimates for the house and hopefully will be moving forward soon! We are very excited about the possibility of building a house and having something to call our own again.
Other than the grind of daily life with 2 gorgeous little girls, there is not much going on. We love watching our girls grow and develop.
Here are a few pictures from recently:
