Puppy watch continued

By golly I am getting a little anxious-still no pups, yet Belle is showing EVERY.SINGLE.SIGN of labor.  I guess I have a skewed sense of how slow labor can be, after all, I had all c-sections.  In at 8am out by 8:30-lickety split.  Maybe tonight???

Puppy watch 2012

This is Belle-our NOW calm Lab.  Who knew that knocking her up would calm her down so much.  So much so that she's been sleeping in Sporty's room at night and she does not get off her bed.
This sweetie is due this week with her first litter of puppies.  Exciting!!!  Our kids cannot wait and frankly, neither can I.  I think I am nesting just as much as she is.  I have been buying blankets, heat lamps and other items just to get ready for the arrival.  I have put all her blankets in her whelping box, cleaned out the kiddie pool (back up if needed), and I check on her hourly if she isn't by my side in the house.  I think I am a nervous Grandma :)

This is Belle when she was about 2 weeks along-she just wanted to lay here ALL.DAY.LONG.

This picture was taken yesterday-she looks and acts like she is 9 months pregnant. I can totally empathize with her.   However, when she is outside she is still bouncing around, following us around, playing, and being so sweet :)

Isn't she gorgeous?  These puppies are gonna be beautiful :)

Good luck baby girl-I will post pictures once the wee ones arrive!

June:  Warm, lots of baseball, and I mean LOTS OF BASEBALL.  Between Trevor and Sporty our life was baseball.

July:  Hot, Bear Lake (twice), Camping (I am officially too old to tent camp anymore-bring on the condo living), Lava Hot Springs, Willard, Golf, Family Reunion and did I mention hot?

I have been slacking in the picture department, but I make a vow to do better.  After all, I have a fabulous looking family :)

Heart break

It's with sadness that I post this-Grandma W passed away on Thursday August 2, 2012.  She had been battling many illnesses from some time, some even for years, but a recent illness put her in the hospital for about 5 weeks and she just couldn't overcome it.  We love you Grandma-we will miss you, but your memory and your love with stay with us every single day!  To Grandpa-we love you and pray that our Father in Heaven and His Son, Jesus Christ, wrap their arms of love, peace and comfort around you until you can be with your Eternal Sweetheart again.
