Happy Snuffler

It takes Spirit just a few seconds to inhale her meals.  When I saw Facebook and Blog posts about the snuffle mat I knew it would be perfect for my girl.

Snow Bunny

Well, I can’t believe it but my big girl is celebrating her first birthday.  Wow time just flies by so quickly.  We’ve also had our first snowfall of the season.  Only one individual in our household is thrilled with the white stuff.  Guess who?

Mmmmm Watermelon

SpiritWatermelon

Technically it is supposed to be spring but we just had a huge dump of heavy, wet snow. The cool temps didn’t seem to dampen Spirit’s enthusiasm for trying watermelon for the first time. At first she just tried licking it. She watched her big brother chomping on it and then she started inhaling it as fast as she could. It seems odd to be eating watermelon when there is snow on the ground.  I managed to capture a bit of the action on video.

11 Weeks Old

SpiritValentines2015

          Happy Valentine’s Day

What a difference a week makes.  Little Spirit is gaining a little more confidence each day.  We’ve been for several short car rides and each time she shows less signs of stress.  We’ve gone from being afraid of going up and down 3 small steps on our deck to mastering all the steps up (and down) to the second floor of our house.  She’s gone from 22.5 to 26 lbs…and Friday night was the first night that she slept through the night without needing a potty break.  Yippeeeee!!.  Getting up at 2am, dead lifting 26 lbs and schlepping her down the stairs was getting to be really hard on the back.  And I’ve saved the best news for last….we’ve made it two days in a row without any potty accidents in the house.

Here’s a fun video of Spirit running in slow motion.  I giggle every time I watch those ears flap up and down.
