162: Ruby's first day of obedience and getting nursery ready

To start off here is a picture of Ruby with a gun powder horn. She is doing her best nonchalant hombre face.

This is an old picture. It is from the beginning of January on the day we found out we are having a boy.
This is about... ummm... 22 weeks?

Ruby's first day of dog obedience. We worked on sit, stay, controlled walking, and come. Ruby did very well even though she was very shy about being with so many other dogs.

Lesson 161: I'm so glad when daddy comes home...

Tyler surprised us all by coming home early today. We were pretty excited to have him here :)
And this is just a picture of one of the ways Ruby will sleep, it looks super uncomfortable.

Lesson 159: Late Night Studying Calls for Snuggling

Tyler and I spent a late night studying so Max and Ruby had to make due with the futon. World peace could be achieved if we all just snuggled instead of fought when we got tired. :) At least that is what works in our home.

Lesson 158: double decker dogs

Most of my posts these days have been pictures of the dogs... that is about all that is going on in my life right now. Pictures of dogs....

Lesson 157: Why don't babies wear bonnets anymore?

Bonnets are the epitome of adorable with babies, except for maybe when they wear super soft hoodies with ears on them. I finished the bonnet to go with the blessing outfit last night and Ruby was gracious enough to model it for the world. It made me wonder why people put monster size flowers and bows on baby heads. Bonnets are so much cuter. :) And Ruby was not as traumatized as this picture looks. In fact she was fine until Tyler started getting Max riled up and Ruby wanted to join in the fight.

Lesson 156: The OTHER embarrassing pregnancy assumption

We all know the cliche experience where a person mistakenly assumes someone is pregnant and they are in fact not. I don't believe there is a way to look someone in the eye after you think their belly pudge is a growing fetus and not the remnants of a particularly hearty Superbowl celebration.

This past weekend I discovered the opposite assumption can be just as troubling. This is when someone does not think you look pregnant and CLEARLY you have a belly building. When someone tells me they can't tell that I am pregnant at this point I instantly think, "you think I look like this ALL the time? My belly sticks out and I have gained as much weight as one Maximus chiweenie."

And he is not a tiny dog.

Lesson 155: Ruby's Replacement

Tyler bought me a big stuffed pug. We teased Ruby that it is her well-behaved replacement, I don't think she appreciated the joke.
