dogs, fish, and walking.... or trying to.

AnDee out of the blue asked if she could have fish. So I let her call Andrew who agreed that we would get her some pet fish if she promised to feed them everyday. So far so good. The kid is a fish feeding fool she also likes to try to catch them... with her oh so clean hands. Pep too likes to splash in the fish bowl. Which creates many fish bowl cleaning opportunities for mom. Yay? I don't think they will last real long but seeing as the going price for baby guppies is 5 for a dollar... I can't complain too much.
And so I present to you, our five fish!
What are their names, you ask? Well AnDee, AnDee, AnDee, AnDee and AnDee of course? What other name is there?... I mean besides Bonny.
 Pep doesn't have his very own fish... he has however taken a real liking to the dogs. We recently had them groomed and they have been reincorporated into the family. Poor things have been shut outside for most of the last year but we decided it was time to repent and bring them back in. Im pretty sure Pep thinks this is the best idea. He LOVES hunter (like most kids do) and he thinks Betty is pretty neat too.

The boy is starting to think he can walk.
(my children don't like to wear pants. Its odd really)
He just recently started to get brave enough to let go and walk on his own. He usually makes it 4 or 5 steps and then crashes but he's getting it!

(blurry I know but you get the idea)
I LOVE the stage he is in. He is totally becoming his own person and he is hilarious. 

The little tykes were sick last week. It started with AnDee (as seen in previous post) and of course spread to the Pep boy. SO. NOT. FUN. Im glad we are at the end of it. We still have some lingering coughs and stuffy noses but they are no longer total zombies so thats refreshing. AnDee was going absolutely crazy being stuck in the house all week so we tried to keep her busy without letting her get too worked up. We pulled out the ABC stencils and they were a huge hit. She painted and colored and helped me cook. She teased Pep an awful lot and got some fish and she got a tattoo... and so did Pep. Monkey tattoos on their cute little feet.

Id be ok with it if they NEVER got sick again.
