Happy New Year!

It's been a busy holiday season, and its nice to be getting back into the routine of regular life.  I loved Christmas, but there's something calming about having a schedule again!

Little Sweet Pea is due in May, and we're getting excited.  We've had a lot of doctor appointments, perinatologist appointments, and ultrasounds the past month, but everything is looking good, and Sweet Pea is just darling in-utero!  At our last ultrasound, we got to watch her grabbing her toes, drinking amniotic fluid, and trying to eat her fist.  I'm just over half-way through this pregnancy now - and we have high hopes for a full-term baby this time around!

The other "baby" in our house is Dakota, our Bernese Mountain pup.  Koda is 5 months old now, and is turning into a pretty good dog.  She's nearly 100% house trained, and has learned not to nibble on people.  Her baby teeth are almost all gone, and her favorite thing to do is lay on our feet ... which can be pretty nice in the winter!  We are going to start some training soon ... she is being a pill with jumping up on us ... which wouldn't be as big a problem, except she's a BIG dog!  She loves to train though - especially if bacon treats are involved.  So far, she can "Sit", lay "Down", get "Off" the furniture, and go to "Bed" (her kennel).  Not too bad for a 5 month old ;)  Now we just have to figure out how to teach her to not walk up and lean on our legs ... its endearing, but she's so big that I have to fight not to fall over, lol!

Anyways, that's about it for us right now!  Hope you're having a great beginning of 2011!
