Autumn Update

Watson is now stitches and cone free. He was quite a trooper the past few weeks and is happy to finally be able to take short walks and venture around the house a bit more. He still has to take it slow, but it looks like he will make a full recovery.

Waverly & Oliver are both doing well. No changes or updates. Just enjoying this most glorious time of year together - enjoying the walks outside in the crisp air, baking a ton of yummy treats and getting ready to celebrate holidays & birthdays.

Oh Watson

It's always something. And if it isn't the kids, it our dog. Watson broke his foot last weekend. He was chasing a squirrel in the backyard and then yelped. After a very expensive surgery on Monday, he seems to be on the mend. He just finished his first week wearing the cone of shame, with at least one week to go. Thankfully he is putting his full weight on his foot and we hope he will make a full recovery. This crazy dog brings us a lot of joy and we are so thankful he is recovering.

It's Been Awhile . . .

We have had a very busy few weeks, leading to me being quite quiet on the blog. Waverly wasn't feeling well and developed a terrible cough that took some time to go away. This meant I had the joy of keeping her home from school. We took walks and watched movies - we had a great time together. 

I was also able enjoy a few weekend mornings cuddling with Oliver, while he watched Mickey Mouse Clubhouse in our bed. It is one of my favorite rituals and I love beginning a weekend slowly with this little guy.

I was also able to take a girls trip to Costa Rica for 5 days with two of my very best friends. Matt took some vacation days to cover things at home. And I was able to take a real break and rest with dear friends. Lots of coffee, wine and conversation.
