well….i'm crazy.

we got a new puppy.
2 weeks ago.
she's from the pound and she is just the sweetest.

she belongs to evan.
he is smitten.
we went to the humane society, just to look and he fell for her right away.
we met her, gertrude met her and evan wanted her.
we went home to think about it…. and i did. a lot.
and the next day when evan came home from work i told him what i decided….
didn't want her. i didn't want another dog. i liked our routine. i liked that i could leave eleanor on the floor and know gertrude wouldn't bother her. i liked that a walk with a baby stroller and ONE dog was manageable. and i like that the dog we already have i can trust.
and evan was heartbroken when i explained this to him. but being the amazing husband he is he said ok.
later i asked him to tell me why he wanted her. out of all the dogs why this one.
he said
"she is THE dog for me"

as soon as he said that i knew it didn't matter what i wanted anymore.
so we got her. and he was right. she's great. she fits right in and most of the time she behaves better than gertrude. she loves eleanor.
she's the most loving dog ever. she just wants to be next to you, or gertrude. they play and are so sweet.
evan was right and she is THE dog for our family.
so now we have 2 dogs 6 chickens and a baby.
i am crazy.
but evan is happy.
and gertrude is happy
and so am i.

here she is.
sweet 9 month old gretchen

and we love her.

and her awesome collar :)

six months.

my sweet sweet girl was 6 months on june 6th.
i can't believe it. she's so big and strong and beautiful.
i still don't know how ev and i got such a stunning daughter. but we did!

also, let me just say sorry for sooo many pictures. but i couldn't help it. there were way too many good photos not to share.

so here are some of the images from her 6 month shoot!!
i am so in love…

i just want to eat those cheeks.

 i mean, seriously.

evan hates that poof. but i got it just for this picture and i love it! 

 look at her eyes. we're in trouble.

 so much trouble.

 she still loves her thumb :)

we just thank God for her, everyday. 6 months have flown by. 
but at the same time i can barely remember life before her.
