6 months

We took Liv last weekend to get some 6-month portraits at Kiddie Kandids. I'm excited to receive the prints, but am ecstatic that when you purchase the CD of the session, the photos are fully yours--no copyrights. And so, here are a few photos of our little bean, growing up fast:

The one below made me laugh; I call it her Realtor picture ;)

Oh, those eyebrows, sweet smile, and little feet. I'm still amazed we have a little daughter! Has it been six months already? She is army crawling, beginning to sit by herself, and now enjoys carrots, pumpkin, and peas along with her rice and oatmeal cereals. I'm proud of you, Liv, and can't wait to see what the next 6 months have in store for you!

In the world of dogs, friendships can be tough to come by. Dex loves other dogs {and is the welcoming committee when we take him to the dog park}, but it's often not reciprocated. Sad, but true. Enter Meck, the 8-month-old Vizsla puppy we dog-sat last week:

They are truly brothers from another mother: they love to play and wrestle and chew bones and get into trouble... {even as I'm typing, Dex is trying to tip-toe out of the office with one of Livvy's stuffed animals in his mouth... ugh}.

Despite their time-outs a la crate, they spent two-and-a-half days having a blast, wearing their doggie smiles all the while.

Dogs: Agreeable friends. They ask no questions, they pass no criticisms.
