Smile Beautiful

Good Morning!!
Ahhh, so I knew that having a new puppy would be a lot of work but I am not sure I was totally prepared for it.  LOL!

We are trying to crate train him and so night 1 he was in the crate all night and I am not sure he ever stopped whining.  Ugh!  No one else heard him whining or was bothered by it.
Night 2 we did a little better.  Frank made it until about midnight until he started with the whining.
Good news is he is getting me  on a schedule.  LOL!!  I have tried to start my day early and  get up well before the kids so I can have my coffee and just get my day started.  So Monday and Tuesday morning I woke at 5am (I know maybe this isn't early for most people but I usually have a hard time getting up at 6:30)
At 5am I take Frank outside to do his business and then we hang out on my patio.
He insists on climbing in my lap and taking a nap.  So that is what we did from 5-6 this morning.
My boy Frank and I snuggling.  He did this for an hour this morning.
I had my daughter take a picture yesterday of me holding Frank.  I am going to take pictures of the two of us until he is full grown.  I am curious to see how long it takes before he can't lay on my lap anymore.  LOL!!
And a beautiful view as the sun was coming up.
 I really am enjoying this taking time for myself idea.  LOL!!

Life certainly calmed down a bit after we moved and now I spend more time outside with my kids, playing with them and just enjoying life.  Now if I can just make a little more time for myself and craft we would be in good shape.  LOL!
Baby steps, right.  I am determined to get life organized.
