Happy Birthday, Lyric!

Today is our little baby's 6 month birthday.  I can't believe we have had her for 4 months!  Lyric Melody has been so much fun.  We have become one of those couples that we used to make fun of; you know, the couples with no kids that treat their puppy like a child.  She is our pride and joy!  And we are unashamed.  :)  I always got a kick of out of seeing Ginger--the dog I grew up with--open gifts, so we decided to wrap a few new toys for Lyric and let her go to town.      Note: This was also our first mattress weekend since Lyric joined our little family, so that is why there is a mattress in our living room.  She has adjusted well to the large bed and loves mattress weekends as much as we do!

Opening her first gift...

A new toy to fetch and squeak!

And a new frisbee!  Her first one, sniff sniff.  :)  Lyric loves to put her toys together and play with more than one at a time.  It cracks us up.

She's a fan of the frisbee!  Can't quite catch it in the air yet, but we will get there eventually!
Our gift to ourselves was this new storage bin for Lyric's food.  Airtight=no smell in the pantry!  And the best part?  (see next pic)
The food scooper stores inside the lid!  Adam was so wowed by this we decided to we had to have it.  We both love new storage things...
After playing with her new frisbee outside it was time for her 
birthday bath and a nice nap in daddy's arms...
We love you, Lyric!  Thanks for bringing so much joy and life into our home.  You are precious!

Happy Birthday Lyric! You have the best puppy parents a dog could ever want.

I love that you wrapped presents for Lyric to open. I think your dog could be in Mensa (do they have Mensa for dogs?) because she is so smart. She knew just what to do with those presents.

Hope to see you soon friend!

What a cutie!

I love the organization thing too...been on a spree to clean up the pantry since I am still waiting--and trying to avoid new, large tasks.

Thinking of you this week! (it was fun to see you on stage this morning--even if we could not talk)
