Romeo

Romeo is a wolf who lives around Mendenhall Lake, where we normally walk Porter. Now, before Honey reads this & says "we" walk Porter, I need to qualify my statement & say that since my X-Tra Tuff boots stopped my fitting my sausage-like feet months ago & I refused to buy a new pair, I haven't been on a dog walk in quite some time. My brother Bucky & his dog Kona took over as Honey & Porter's dog walking partners, and this week, they finally met Romeo. Romeo, who for the most part just wants to play with dogs, is still a wild animal with wild animal instincts. and has killed at least one small dog.

Kona, Romeo & Porter:

Hard to believe how naturally they're playing with a wolf. Romeo really just wants to play. When Adam & Bucky made the decision it was time to leash the dogs again, Romeo whimpered & whined, and followed them along the beach for quite some time.

And PS, I'm beginning to think this baby is never coming out. Yeah, yeah, I officially have 9 days until my due date, but I'm ready & I firmly believe, so is she. I've been having mild contractions for days, and last night they came every 7 minutes from the time I went to bed until this morning when they only came inconsistently. I'm uncomfortable, the pressure on my pelvis is...I don' t even know what to say about how that feels, my back is sore, as are my hips, I lost my mucous plug yesterday & have been leaking ever since, and I don't want to spend another night of waking up writing down damn contractions every 7 minutes.

I concur, let's say...$50 bucks she has it before 8:00pm Saturday?
Funny, I just watched the episode of Friends where they're all taking bets on when Rachel has her baby. I kept thinking of Tracy!
I can just see Tracy, sitting in a chair and screaming at her belly, "get out! get out! get out!"

: )

Just checking in to see how you and that precious little one are doing! I bet you are sleep deprived and exhausted -- and in love!

Oh my gosh, that's too cool about the wolf! And good luck on having the baby. I have a friend that started trying to play tennis in hopes of speeding things up. I, on the other hand, dont play tennis NOW.

Tracy! I miss you! Yes my studio is always that neat except when I'm in the middle of a project but I work better in an organized environment so I clean up when I'm done.

Love that picture of you and your gorgeous babykins. You did great! And you look wonderful. Motherhood really agrees with you.
