I'm here I'm here!

Sorry for the lack of posts, it's amazing how an 8 pound being can be so darn time consuming! We are surviving though, and the little miss is up to a whopping 8 pounds, 2 ounces...she's gaining pretty slowly, but gaining nonetheless. She is sleeping ok at night, she is a very good little alarm clock, going off consistently at 3 hour intervals, but the doctor assured me she would start sleeping better in a week or two when her tummy gets a bit bigger. She is 1 month old today and I can't believe how fast the time has gone! I have been able to get out and about though, Mr. Pit babysat last weekend and allowed me to get a mani/pedi, and since she loves the car I have been able to meet people for lunch and errands, so that has been great as well!

I do of course have another reason for this this might be the CUTEST thing I have EVER heard of, and I am SO sad that I don't live in this town in Florida...I think I would go EVERY week for sure! Little Pup would hate that I came home smelling of other dogs every week but there is NOTHING like playing with a puppy!!

Here is the scoop, at the Southeast Guide Dog school, the puppies are let go to play with the public for a few hours every day. This is so that the puppies can interact with people of all ages, abilities, tones of voices and everything else that makes every person different. The puppies have to be able to work with anyone they are assigned to, and the more comfortable they are with all different kinds of people from the start, the better.

You can show up every morning at 9am and they let all the dogs out to play with whomever is there. You can snuggle them, play with them, walk them around, whatever you want, they encourage all kinds of interaction. HOW cool is that? You can read the article HERE ...seriously SO adorable!!!

Anyways, that's about all that's going on, I'll do my best to do a Furry Friday post tomorrow but I have to go out to the mall and we are going to dinner at the club (it's lobster night, yum!!) I'll try though :)

I hope all is well with everyone, and here's a gratuitous baby picture just for fun :)

Have a great weekend!

Mr. Pit Interruption

Just wanted to let everyone know how great Mrs. Pit is as a mom and wife. She is working round the clock to take care of me and our daughter. I know all of her readers are eagerly awaiting her next post and I am sure one will come soon. Mrs. Pit has been wonderful taking care of our daughter who has been a little bit cranky of late. Daughter Pit is probably going through the 2-3 week growth spurt right now and sleep has been little to close to nothing at times over the last couple of days. Mrs. Pit has been waking up throughout the night so I can get some sleep since I am back to work and can not nap during the day. This has helped me out a lot and I love that Mrs. Pit is concerned about my sleep. She has more than enough on her plate taking care of Daughter Pit 24/7. I knew Mrs. Pit would be a great mom and she still exceeds my expectations on a daily basis. I love her more than yesterday as always.

A 1st Mothers Day

My first Mother's Day was wonderful. We haven't been getting much sleep in these parts (but does anyone with a 2 week old?) and somehow we still managed to make it to Mother's Day brunch at the club on Sunday with the whole family.

The whole staff at the club was enamored with the little one, who of course decided to take a 2 hour nap during the whole event, and we found out her picture is not only in the kitchen of the club but also in the pro shop :) We also got lots of offers to baby sit as well, and we'll definitely take people up on it if they're not careful!

Mr. Pit also surprised me with a beautiful ring that was very hard to take off, but it's way too fancy for normal daytime wear...didn't he do a great job? It's really nice too because sapphires are my birthstone and diamonds are Little Pits, so it was a perfect ring for my first Mother's Day. We are also lucky that she wasn't late because May's birthstone is Emerald...but his plan worked!

Otherwise we're a little exhausted but very happy over here. Mr. Pit has been great and been so helpful around the house and with dinners and everything, we are very lucky to have married such a great guy.

Here are some pics of the little miss and my surprise :)

I hope everyone had great weekends and fabulous Mother's Days for those Mom's out there!

The inlaws are in town tomorrow and we have lots of other visitors scheduled for the week, yay!

I can't say when I'll be blogging again, it's amazing how close the laptop is but how far away it can seem with an infant that needs tending...but I'll try to be better, I promise!

xoxo Mrs. Pit
