The New Member of Our Family

  Posted by Picasa

Meet Kiki, our new puppy...born today...the breeder just sent us a photo of her. Finally, Henry has bitten the bullet and allowed us to get one for Adam. As an only-child myself, I am ecstactic for Adam. I grew up with three dogs (at different points of my life) in my grandparent's home. I took care of them whole summers, saw them every weekend. While I know I will have a new "baby" to take care for the next thirteen years, I cannot be happier.

This makes me think of all that Adam has given me, including the courage to get a dog of our own. I think now of the lines my recent favourite children's book, You Are My I Love You, by Maryann Cusimano:

"I am your favorite book
you are my new lines
I am your night-light
you are my starshine

I am your lullaby
you are my peekaboo

I am your goodnight kiss
you are my I love you."

Puppy smell is almost as sweet as new baby smell.
Congratulations on the new baby girl!
