Babies Babies Babies

Tuesday one of my coworkers found a baby dove in the parking lot of her apartments. It had somehow survived the night of major storms and flash flooding. Nearby were two other baby birds that hadn't been so lucky. She brought her to work and I started hand feeding her. Today she took her first wobbly flight. Rehabbing wild birds is so rewarding & I can't wait until I can release her.

We decided to name our puppy Olivia. She's been SO much fun and fits into our family perfectly. Being a terrier, she's smart as a whip, but has a wide streak of willful disobedience. Luckily she's cute enough that I barely even want to wring her neck the 12th time she tries to pull a fast one on me. The same "fast one" she's tried 11 other times and gotten caught. She starts puppy obedience classes on May 8. She's either going to be the star pupil, a complete embarrassment or maybe a spunky little combo of both. :)
Last weekend I FINALLY got to meet my beautiful niece Cecilia. She is the happiest, most outgoing child I've ever had the pleasure to make smile. She's the spitting image of my kid brother at her age. I'm hoping to see alot more of this little cutie.
As for us, we're 6DPO and having vague temps and zero early pregnancy symptoms. Only time will tell, but I'm definitely not holding my breath. I'm finding it harder and harder to do anything but endure the TWW. I miss the optimism I had a short while ago. Perhaps I should work on getting that back. Trina is having anxiety about not being pregnant and is haunted by thoughts of not being able to get pregnant. These BFN's are really doing a number on us. This weekend we're going on a romantic beach get away for our 2yr wedding anniversary. I think it' s just the thing we need to recharge our batteries. :)

Cecelia is beautiful!! I love that name...and Olivia is what we wanted to name maya. LOL.

I know the BFN are so hard but hand in there...when it happens you will look back and realized it happened at that time for a reason! xoxo

Lovin all the babies! TTC is so stressful, that's why Holly and I took a month off. It was the best thing we could have done for ourselves. I'm hoping that this is your month. I know how hard it is to see your partner disappointed month after month.

I've been reading your blog for a couple of weeks and just wanted to say hi. Your new pup is adorable! Love the name--I have a poodle/terrier mix named Oliver so I feel you on taming the disobedience thing. Hope y'all have a great vacation.
