Meet Sophie

This girl.
I don't even think I can properly describe how precious she is. I fell in love with her the moment I picked her up and she nuzzled her little head in my neck (she has since decided that nuzzling is not enough and chewing on my ears is better). She is bouncing around one minute, boxing and playing, and fighting sleep the next. She doesn't really like falling asleep it seems. Fights it to the last second where she simply cannot stand anymore. It's pretty much the cutest thing ever.

Here's a little video the mister took on our trek home from picking her up.

She's also costing mama quite a bit of sleep, and keeping us on our toes making sure that she doesn't chew on everything in sight. For reals, Day One included the things one might expect (shoes, table legs, fingers) and lots that maybe you wouldn't expect (books, carpet, power cords). Anything. Doesn't matter. But only mildly interested in her own toys. Figures. 

And the kitties are doing alright I think. Molly is very curious. Winston is suspicious and scared, but I'm impressed that he's not just staying under the bed and is venturing into the living room more than I expected him to. I think they will get along. I love our growing family. :)


  1. I think you've got yourself a keeper. I absolutely crack up every time I watch that video. She is so tired but so doesn't want to succumb to sleep. The way her head slips off the box is hilarious!!!

  2. what kind of doggie is she? She's adorable.

  3. Kristen, she is a boxer and she is a wee little thing. We thought she was 8 weeks when we got her but it turns out she was only 7 weeks! She is doing well though, and even slept through the night last night!

  4. This entire time I've thought your dog is a Boston terrier. Shows what I know about dogs! (She looks sooo similar to Cameron's brother's bug though (Boston/pug mix - it must just be the brindled and white that's fooling me.))
