Big brother Zeus!

As most of you know, Zeus was our first child... our sweet bulldog! He came to us at the perfect time... when we needed him the most. I think he needed us at that point, too! Once we found out I was pregnant, one of my first thoughts was how Zeus would react to this new little person taking all of his attention. I have to say, after five months of having Alea, that he has done quite well. You can tell that he loves her. He will sniff her and lick her. And she LOVES him! She will just cackle at him. It is very fun to see. Now, I will say that he is a very jealous dog... and very protective, but I expected that. Everyone has adjusted how they need to, and Zeus is no different. We still love him very much! Here are some pictures to show how sweet they are together!

Zeus doing what he does best!!

The first picture taken of them together. Aren't they sweet??

Zeus will get right in her face... and she loves it!

My sweet babies! :)

Water Baby! ... well hopefully!

The last weekend in May we went to Houston for Aunt Jeanne and Uncle Kevin's party. While we were there, we decided to try Alea out in the pool! I was very excited for this... I am not a water person, but I was ready to see how she would react to being in the water. She loves her bath time, so I thought the "BIG" bathtub would be a hit. Well, it wasn't exactly a hit, but she didn't hate it. Sometimes our little girl is very serious, and this was one of those times. She had such a stoic look on her face when she was in her float in the water. She just likes to take everything in. It was quite amusing!

But even more important than actually being in the pool was her ADORABLE bathing suit! She has got to be the cutest thing in the world! I think you will agree once you see the pictures! I am ready to get back in the water with her. We will make her into a water baby in no time!

First of all, congrats Aunt Jeanne and Uncle Kevin! I love you! :)

Now, the many faces of Alea Grace in her precious 2-piece cherry bathing suit!

Ok, this last one is my FAVORITE! Gosh, how I love this little girl!!!
