BUMPdate 10 weeks

When I was pregnant with Mackenzie I didn’t record any of my pregnancy and I kind of regret that.  So with the nuggets I have decided I’m going to do a weekly Bumpdate. A weekly update of my bump, how I’m feeling and a way I can look back and remember this pregnancy.  I am currently obsessed with reading blogs of other mommas who have carried twinsies, I’ve found some good ones, some ok ones and others that I read a couple entries and they didn’t suite my fancy. I hope these can be in at least the ok category if not the good ones.  So without further adieu …

Big News is Coming …

Well there is some exciting news that is going to be coming your way. I can’t quite spill the beans yet but it’s a big one.

In other news the husband and I have expanded our family by one more. Mauser

I would like to introduce Mauser! A few weeks ago we were discussing Angus’ new habit of chasing his tail without end and decided that we were going to adopt a new buddy because he has been so bored.  We contacted Kitty Kare here in Thunder Bay and went to visit her at her foster home.  We met her and got to know her and her story a little while we spoke to her foster mom Aaron bonded with her. It went well so we decided that we should adopt her that day and brought her home.  You probably can’t tell but she is a poly dactyl cat ( she has 6 toes in the front). After we brought her home Angus was not impressed and spent the first day hissing and swatting at her everywhere she went. Lola is such a good dog that she couldn’t care less about her and just walked past her.   By day two everything was going a little better and now they’re best buddies.  I can honestly say I didn’t really want another cat but Aaron really did and he has been on the hunt for a black poly dactyl cat since we met. so that is the new addition to our little family!

Stay tuned for the big news coming in the next few weeks!
