Taking the good with the bad: poor Ridley lost/broke off/ripped off her toenail, so she is in a world of hurt right now BUT Emmie also specifically reached for her for the first time this weekend. My heart was melting in so many ways.... #poorpuppers #dariddles #EmiliaClare #lemmerzoo #dogandbaby #doggy #puppylove #babystagram

Happy second birthday to everyone's favorite pupster! I wish we were there to give you extra love in person, Ri-Ri, but I know you are having a blast at camp! #dariddles #pupster #cattledogmix #birthdaydog #lemmerzoo

Some people may scoff when you tell them that raising a puppy is like take care of a baby, but I say that it really is a great set of training wheels for parents to be-- you get late night/all night wake ups, potty accidents, furniture mishaps, and more (like the crying). You even learn how to distinguish between cries of wanting attention and needing attention. And the snuggles and love and falling head over heels even while the little thing drives you mad.
.
.
But then the real baby comes, and you have to reprioritize. It is hard to find the space in your day for your furry baby when you can't really leave the human baby alone.
.
.
That is why I'm making an extra effort to make sure that Ridley has some one on one time with me (particularly me) without Emmie. Some time to goof around and act like a dog. To not have to be big sister. . . I do this during Emmie's naps, or I'll let Alex play with the kiddo on the rare occasion that he is home before dinner and bed. When Emmie is playing on her mat, I'll try to play with her while also giving Ree a good pet and scratch, and after Emmie goes to bed? It's cuddle time for all of us (Alex, #daRiddles, and me) on the couch.
.
.
Can you relate? How do you find unadulterated time for your furst baby when your first baby needs all the attention?

It's #nationalpetday so I am celebrating allllll of my pets in the @lemmerzoo : #dariddles #zoester #emiliaclare and that kid named Alex. What a zoo we are--baby screaming, cat vomiting, Ridley sitting on laps she isn't invited on to, and just a general lack of personal space. .
.
Wouldn't have it any other way. Though less screaming and vom would be nice... but I'm nitpicking.
Do you live in a zoo? #adoptdontshop #petsofinstagram #instababy #instacute #naptime #momlife
