100 pounds of sweetness!

I missed him so much while I was at district council...



Here we are taking a little nap together yesterday on my day off...Fun Friday!  Max has been snuggling up to me since we brought him home at just a few weeks old, at two or three pounds.  He was so tiny he could fit in the palm of one hand.  For the first few months of his life he slept right under my chin each night...until he was old enough to stop crying at night and go into his kennel.  I could have put him in the kennel the first night but his whimpering just broke my heart, and I couldn't do it.  He stayed with me and was comforted by the warmth of sleeping right under my chin.  I didn't mind...although I won't speak for Larry.  :) 

Max soon matured enough to sleep on his own each night.  Even so he still spends a little time snuggling with me each day and we take a nap if I'm off and able to take one.

He still has the same pattern of sleeping right under my chin...will often  come and plop down on me -- all 100 lbs of him!  Doesn't matter how big he gets, he's still Momma's baby...

I hate when I have to leave him.  My kids all chide me about how spoiled rotten he is.  They say, "Mom, you've raised him to be such a baby!"  Yep.

Home sweet home...back to kids, our sweet bulldogs (Max and Maddie), and Celebration Church...where I'm leading women's life coaching today.  Yay!

It's gonna be a great morning!
