As I get closer to my due date, I wonder what things will be like with the fur babies when our REAL baby is here. I know we'll always love them and give them attention no matter what but it's gonna be an adjustment for sure. I just can't wait for the day that Baby V actually pays attention to them and loves them as much as we do! So take the trip down memory lane with me and let's look at some baby pics!!
Our first born (ha!), Sibley "May May"
Born April 2006
Born April 2006
Not sure where the May May came from but it's pretty much all we call her now :) A co-worker of mine was giving away her cat's kittens and I knew Ronnie had really been wanting a cat. He was in his own apartment at that point so I figured it was the perfect time. When I went to choose a kitten after work, I texted him some pics and he fell for the big headed little girl :)
This was the original ad my coworker posted...How freaking cute, right?
It didn't take long for her to grow into (outgrow, really) that big head of hers!
We love our fiesty plus size girl ;)
Next up, Niles "Nigh Nigh"
Born Oct. 2007
Ronnie comes from a dachshund loving family so he totally sold me on them when we finally decided to get our first dog. One day driving by our local grocery store's parking lot we saw dachshunds being sold. I hate to admit now that this is where we got him but the moment we stopped "just for a look" there was no turning back. I completely fell in love with the teeny runt of the litter, who they had named Oscar. He came home with us just an hour later :)
The little runt turned into (what my brother calls him) "Flex Buff Chest"!
He's now our tough little guy whose "buff chest" drags on the ground! <3
And last but not least, Frasier "Fray Fray"
Also born Oct. 2007
In Feb. 2008 we decided Niles had way too much energy and needed a playmate. This time we wanted to look for a rescue so when Ronnie happened upon an ad on Craiglist from a lady who just wanted to give away this little four month old dog, he knew something was up and immediately went to get him. When he got to the lady's house, Frasier ran up to him as if he wanted out of there! I remember Ronnie calling me saying "I got him, babe. He's ours! That evil lady didn't like him and said he wasn't good enough to mate!". WTF. So we feel like we did rescue him, especially since he came with some issues. We think she either ignored him the whole time he was there and/or abused him. It took a while but he's definitely much better now! :)
That poor little boy who used to be afraid of everyone is now our guard dog!
His eyes are still as sweet as ever and he is hands down the best cuddler of the bunch.
I love my fur babies!! <3
Any advice from you moms out there with pets??
Our pets don't have agressive personalities in any way so I'm not worried about them with the baby. I'm just really curious how adjusting worked out for you!
