Bronchial baby

This week began with Colt having a small cold, but by Thursday it had morphed into what we discovered was bronchitis. Now he is on breathing treatments twice a day. He has been acting like himself the entire time, he just wakes up from naps coughing and has trouble going back to sleep. Anyway, here are some pics of my tough little boy from the week!

The Dog-Gone days of fall

She once was lost but now is found. Molly that is. And she was actually lost 3 times. Molly got out on Saturday, Town Lake Animal Shelter called us a few hours later, and she was home. We thought she got out of this hole in our fence, so we patched it up. Well, Sunday she got out again. We were baffled and thought maybe she jumped the fence or that the neighbor kids let her out. We got a call Monday morning that she was safe and sound (good thing cause it almost froze that night!). I brought her home, took her outside to potty, and immediately she got out again! This time I saw her leave through a TINY crack between our adjoining fences! Anyway, she was gone for 3 days and I pretty much thought she was a gonner. I'd even grieved her loss and started planning for a new dog. (As a side note: A dog is a must have with a small child and all the milk/juice/food they spill on the floor. My floors were horribly dirty after 3 days without Molly!) We found a sign someone posted at our local park and discovered someone had found Molly. I guess they couldn't read the number on her tag so never called. I don't think Colt really noticed she was gone, although I did see him crawling around the house acting like a dog a few times. Anyway, Molly is home safe and sound, the fence is patched in multiple places, and we are one happy family again!

Davey Crockett

Here are some pictures I took today of Colt for my portrait photography class I've been taking. I'm learning so much and love that Ty stays home with Colt for male bonding so I can go learn to take better pictures.
For Halloween, Colt was Davey Crockett. He wore the same costume that his Uncle Dusty wore when he was 2 years old. Needless to say, the costume was very big on Colt - but I never found a costume for him, plus it was nice to have a free costume since he only wore it for an hour or so. My dad and Jennifer and Abbey came for Halloween weekend, but somehow I didn't get pictures with everyone. They did help us clean out our garage, so now we can fit our cars in there!

Yes, Ty is wearing a grill in his mouth. He's wanted one since the song "let me see your grill"- and his boss brought one for him to wear for Halloween. Best day of Ty's life.
