Default This is Elijah

I figured since puppies should be arriving this week sometime, I should get around to introducing Eli first

I know i'm biased, but I think he's the happiest baby I've ever met in my life. That's not to say he doesn't have his moments, but most of them are pretty cool. So, here's a few of the thousands of pictures i've taken already in his 4 short months. (4 months on Sunday)

Judging by those pictures, I don't think you're too biased. Not just happy, he's flipping adorable, too!

If that were my baby, I'd be biased too. What a gleeful little cutie!

And good luck with whelping Any idea how many pups are on their way?

Thanks! Being a dad is greater than I could ever have imagined that's for sure. I'm very grateful that i've been able to spend so much time with him the past few months.

Not sure on the number of pups. She's pregnant, that's enough for me to know I don't like xray to confirm what my eyes can tell me, and ultrasounds are cool to see, but again, she's pregnant, I'll find out how many when they're born

I don't have any experience to draw from, but the breeder thinks 5 or so? which I think is a perfect number. I'm excited for this litter that's for sure.

Well, since you're always so grumpy, of course the baby seems happy by comparison I do have to wonder what the cat is whispering to him to cause that look on his face, though.

All kidding aside, though, great looking kid there! Enjoy him and take him places and do everything you possibly can to create memories for him and for you.

you know i'm always about balance, so something has to even me out it's the natural order of things. Just today I had to yell at some **** kids to get off my grass

I think that picture with the cat was when he was first realizing that his hands were actually attached to him. Before they just flailed about and hit things and they'd move which made him go nuts with glee

Then a few days he sat in his swing with his arms straight out in front just staring at his fists and it was like he was trying to get them to move, but he doesn't have the coordination yet. It's getting better every day, but back to the cat, I think he was really concentrating and wanted to reach out, but hadn't quite gotten the messages right to get his hands to extend

He reminded me of a kid trying to move things with his mind by concentrating really hard

Ok, i'm posting again because i'm a proud poppa and this picture makes me smile

IMG_9701 by zendogbuddha, on Flickr

and also because Yoli had her puppies yesterday. It was a tough go, needed help with 3 out of the 4 and had one that wasn't in the birth canal and stuck up by the uterus so she ended up having a c-section and that puppy unfortunately did not survive. But mom is doing great the 4 that are with us are all big, fat and strong puppies. We're really excited about these. 2 boys, 2 girls

He is so adorable!! You should absolutely be proud And what a fantastic smile, just looking at the pictures make me happy. He seems like a very sweet boy.

I like his name, too. Elijah is one of my favorite baby boy names.

Congrats on the puppies, too!! Sorry to hear you lost one and that Yoli had to have a c-section, but very, very happy she and the puppies are doing well. Are there two sables and two blacks (...or black/tans?).

You're not going to get much rest for the next 8+ weeks, are you?
