Yeah, you read it right, NOT that we're keeping him. Jon pulled in yesterday afternoon and this little guy was very pleasantly sitting in our driveway. We're calling him "Little White Dog" for now. Original, I know. Anyway, it appears he has an implanted microchip so we called the number on his tag, but his owners haven't registered him yet. He's the sweetest little thing. I whisked him inside yesterday and gave him a bath, then he quite handily and deliberately ran over and peed on one of Jon's drums. Needless to say, that was the end of his short-lived indoor time. He's living on our slightly damp, slightly cold porch for the time being. We've called the local shelters and posted an ad on Petfinder, so hopefully his obviously sad owners will do the right searching soon and will be led to our doorstep. Maddie and Dora are NOT in love with him. Keeping him is not an option, SO, I'll keep you posted Little White Dog's status...

Leapin' Lizards! No, it's not just a cheesy blog post title, but yet the actual name of the latest indoor inflatable play-thingy place Andrew and I stumbled across today. These places are amazing. What a great idea (another of many I wish I'D thought of first). Leapin' Lizards is really clean and contains a huge variety of stuff for little ones to safely get their hands on and bodies into. It's relatively inexpensive, too. Did these places always exist and I am just now learning about them out of necessity? Very likely, I suspect. Anyway, it was a really fun morning, with the exception of a few failed lessons in sharing (ah, the subject of a future post). Andrew mostly loved playing with the trains and pushing around the kiddo shopping cart (sometimes INTO other patrons - dear God), but hey - he had fun and we were out of the house, which is often a good thing.

After a couple days of major sniffles and sneezes, Andrew has kicked his cold's butt so we ventured out this morning for some fun. It began in the Waffle House with his first time sans high chair. Hello, booster seat!

Andrew was pretty crabby yesterday. He awoke 3 times last night, screaming and crying. He was restless the whole night, shuffling around uncomfortably. Then he slept in this morning until 9:30. When I finally went in to get him, his face was COVERED in snot. Poor little thing. So, after almost 18 months, we've got our first sickness - a miserable cold. He HATES having his nose wiped and recoils when I come at him with a tissue or the snot-sucker. By the end of this cold, he'll probably be conditioned to run whenever he sees me coming. Poor thing.

Wasn't it just yesterday that we had to support Andrew's floppy little neck? Now he's drinking through a straw, raking leaves, and playing with other kiddos in an inflatable gym. Definitely sniff, sniff. Tomorrow I take him in for his learner's permit.
