It's hard being a big sis



Once upon a time we were a family of three, Ron never wanted to admit it, but Macie was our first born and before we gave birth to Addi, she was our baby. We took her on exotic walks, gave her delicious food, and waited on the pooch hand and foot. I always thought that my feelings for her would never change. I thought I would always be excited to take her outside to go on bathroom walks and I never thought I would be angry at her cute little barks.

Then came Addi. The absolute love of our lives and suddenly everything changed. Yes, we still love you Macie, but things around here are getting absolutly ridiclous!


Why does she want to go off of a barking rampage when Addi finally goes to sleep? Why does she think Binkies are delicious and tries to find and hide my favorites only to devour them at a later date and make me sad? Why does she want to do the grossest thing and pluck the dirty diapers out of the grip of the garbage bin and...yes, use them as a midnight snack? She is just a little out of control. I know that she had her whole world ripped up and that everything she thought was hers now belongs to a tiny thing that loves to rip her tail off, but come on! She has to understand the totum pole here and that she would be the one to go because Addi is non transferable (when I say go I mean to my parents house, not anywhere that has demons or anything promise.) Anyway, this picture basically says it all...who is the baby around here?

That is HILARIOUS! Cannon has the same yellow binkie! OK, could Addi be ANY cuter?????? Oh my heck! She is just to precious for words! She needs to be Cannon's Valentine :)

Ok, first, that picture of you and Ron is so cute! Second, you make me laugh. I think you are so funny about your dog. I am trying to prepare myself for all the trouble my pups will cause once little Taylor gets here, I'm sure it will be bad! But, at least you are sweet and let them share the crib! ;)

First of all your little girl is so dang cute, and I think she looks just like you! My cat hissed at me and ran away for about two weeks after I had Dylan. She is still a brat. I can't believe your dog sucks on her binkies!!!

Please email me at juliezmcgill@yahoo.com on how to do your cute layout. No rush, just when you get the chance. Thanks Mandy!

Alright I am going to post a pic so you don't feel so alone in this sad process of pushing your first baby ( the dog) down a wrung on the totum pole... Alright I can't post the pic on my comment so I will post it on my page- along the side so you can see.

Oh come on, that is such a cool picture! Poor Macie, starving for attention. But you are right... Addi is definitely cuter (and probably better smelling, especially after the midnight poop treats)
