Willow, Our New English Springer Puppy

img_9058img_9074img_9082

I felt the need to deviate from my typical home décor theme to share this “milestone” with y’all. We picked up our new puppy, Willow, last Saturday (an 8 week old English springer spaniel) and she has straight up worn me out, y’all. In light of that, I want to take a quick minute to praise all my mommy friends out there. Y’all seriously ROCK! [And speaking of mommies, one of my besties from college, Lindsey, has an amazing blog that y’all ought to check out! She shares some heartfelt (and some hilarious) stories about mommyhood.]  This pup plays, barks, and jumps for hours on end and then puppy snoozes for a measly 10 minutes — ON REPEAT. This new puppy mom can barely keep up. When she is not attempting to chew the furniture, eat my toes, launch off the porch, or terrorize her big brother Drake (our 110 pound yellow lab), she is whining at the bag of puppy food on the counter as if she didn’t just eat moments before. She’s too smart for her own good! I’ve been sleeping with one eye open this past week and I’m one tired girl. I can only imagine what it must be like to have an infant or toddler, so props to you mommies out there! I commend you for your services. Lawwwwd knows I can barely handle being a puppy mom right now.

On the other hand, she is the sweetest little cuddle bug. She suckles in her sleep and I about die of preciousness every time. She runs full speed across the yard and tumbles while trying to stop because she’s still working on her motor skills. She is so stinkin’ cute! But, she is also the reason I’m so behind on the blog. It is just too difficult to get anything done with her around. (Picture this: I’m speed typing while she naps on my feet. I’m trying not to move or make much noise because she will be up and at ‘em again in the blink of an eye. Does this sound familiar to any of y’all? Haha) I’ve been trying my best to get some better pictures of her, but she is constantly nose-to-the-ground and running all over the place (I know y’all know what I mean)!

Thanks for reading! Back to the usual blog content tomorrow;)
