Sleepless Nights

I vividly remember the days shortly after having my son, when sleep was elusive and it seemed like I ran for days at a time on just a few hours rest. And....I am reliving them.

See, we have a new baby in the house. Well, actually TWO new babies. And they sure have been crying a lot and keeping me awake at night.

Aren’t my new babies sweethearts?
Meet Flash and Flower, Ty’s brand new beagle puppies.

They sure are missing their mama, but they are adjusting quite well to their new surroundings (considering they are only six weeks old). Ty is learning to play with them and they are learning to sleep through the night.... slowly.

The babies are staying in the house with us until they are big enough to go out to the kennels with the big dogs. In the meantime, our cat is VERY jealous and is demanding a lot more attention than usual. What Duder (the cat) doesn’t know is that more than once, I have snuck down the stairs and caught him curled up next to the kennel crate, keeping a watchful eye over the new additions.

Ty got to take these pictures to school with him yesterday for Show & Tell and they kids got quite a kick out of the little cuties, spurring a day-long topic that allowed them all to talk about their own pets, as well.
Welcome home, Flash & Flower! (Yes, Ty named them himself!)

Ty looks much more willing to touch the puppies vs. the photos of him holding the fish...

I still can't get over how darn cute they are! Feel sorry for them missing their momma...hopefully they'll start sleeping through the night soon...

OMG! They are adorable. CONGRATS!

This story sounds familiar. The Ozman, whom we brought home exactly 13 years ago today at 13 weeks, cried ALL NIGHT, EVERY NIGHT for a week!

After that, it got lots better. :-)
