Halloween's not even over yet and I'm thinking about packing away LeeLoo's banana split costume with the realistic thought of never using it again. I bought it from Old Navy in September brand new.…Continue

We're pregnant with our first baby! LeeLoo has been an amazing nurse, following me more intently since we found out. She stays with me during the morning sickness and takes advantage of the extended sleeping hours I now follow. We're so excited she will be a part of our family as we welcome a new one into the mix.

She has had a 'floater' in her left eye for some time now. Not visible when we got her-we checked our baby out! It's alien to us, but it is growing. She will need to be seen by a doggy eye doctor and prepped for…Continue
