I began writing this post early yesterday morning since I had a spare few minutes before they all woke up. I continued it later in the day when little Elliott’s parents were away visiting friends and more, and my husband and I were baby sitting. Elliott fortunately decided to take a nap.
Elliott will turn six months old next week. He’s adorable! But of course, at that age, he’s still high maintenance. I can remember caring for both of our sons during their infancy. Yes, it’s time consuming, but it’s so much fun!
Our dogs are fascinated by him. They’re also demanding attention when Elliott is asleep or otherwise occupied. They’re used to being our babies around here and keeping us at their bark and call. At the moment, they’re pretty far down in our pack hierarchy and don’t really understand. Fortunately, they’re Cavalier King Charles Spaniels and are extremely people oriented. They’re curious but won’t do anything more than sniff the baby and increase their usual demands.
I’ve gotten some posts up online and done a little bit of writing, but not a whole lot. Do I regret it? Not at all! I wish they were closer and I could see them more often, but for now everything else can wait.
How about you--how do family visits affect your household?
