New Addition...

Yesterday we picked this little guy up from beaver, ut...

After months and months of searching for the perfect dog/breed for us, we decided on a mini schnauzer. They don't get too big and they don't shed, which is exactly what we want. So i searched and searched for the one i wanted which took another few months and we finally found a breeder in manti, ut who's price was right and whose puppies were just adorable. Called her, arranged to meet in beaver and now we have a puppy. A ton of names have been thrown out there, but haven't set him with a name yet. Any suggestions? Kate is loving this dog and tries to get it to "come" to her everywhere she goes.
Also, speaking of new additions, last night a home pregnancy test confirmed baby #2 on the way, which made us even more excited (and me a little nervous). And makes us #15 in the ward baby boom (yes, 15+ ladies in my ward prego.) So i think it puts this baby arriving sometime early to mid september, which to me feels like its around the corner and will come sooner than i expect... My pregnancy with Kate was pretty much a breeze (yes i am one of those lucky ones) and i'm hoping baby #2 will be the same... So i'm about 6 1/2 weeks along (which is very early to tell people, but it's hard for me to keep secrets like this, plus i hate to lie to people if they ask) So whoever reads this first will know first and they can pass along the information as they wish.

Congratulations! and I love your dog!

lilsusha said...

I ain't gonna say anything as 'insightful' as Stacie Jo. Congratulations! VERY excited for you. I KNOW you'll be DRESSED for this pregnancy, what with the Shabby Apple maternity line. Oh, and I want a list of preggos in the ward!!! start checking blogs b/c I saw one yesterday that had a new 'floating baby'. I'm not one to gossip (well not about pregnancy) so you'll have to find it on your own. Well, maybe you already know, but it was news to me.

Zach and zaira Benson said...

CONGRATIONS! That is so exciting. I would love to have one, but our landlords won't let us. I'd love to get a little boxer, but with how little our house is a minature schnauzer would be nice. (and no shedding) Oh and sorry to hear about the accident. Good luck with the kid! At least it will be here before the end of the year so you can get a bigger tax return in 2010!

Kathy's Boys said...

So excited for you to be having another baby!! Another cute Dye!! My idea for the puppy's name is Shadow! He will be following Kate around (or Kate
him!) Just an idea. Let me know when you are ready for baby names! jk Andrea and I want to take you to
lunch soon. Thanks for always helping us with stuff!!
Good luck with the pregnancy.

Amanda Tippetts said...

Jan said...

Mame said...

Congrats!!!! that's so awesome. And the puppy is exciting too, though puppies in your own house suck ... but the older it gets, the more of the family it becomes!!! our 2 dogs are our babies ... for at least a few more months!

Caleb, Nicole, and Tanner Zobrist said...

Yea! We are so happy for you guys! And the dog is so cute.

Anna said...

That is so great! Congrats, congrats, congrats! You will do great with two little ones. I can't believe there is 15 women in the ward pregnant. Woah! It keeps going and going. :) congrats.

Natalie said...

Yeah! I'm so happy for you! New puppy, new baby...what could be better?!!

Tanner and Andrea said...

SO EXCITED about the NEW BABY COMING!!! YAH. although our kids will be not matching up in age... it will still be fun. I hope it is a girl- so Maddex can date her. :) haha. LOVE THE DOG- he is adorable-- i just want to squeeze him. As for his name... Im going with Diesel- he is all black & I think it is so cute.. if I had a doggie, and I never will probably- I'd name him that :)

Aaron and Chels Allred said...
