Too Close To Be Objective

I found this song on the internet. It's amazing what you can stumble upon. It really impressed me and touched my heart. Maybe because August 2 is when I had to have my Hysterectomy so many years ago or die of uterine cancer. Maybe because my sweet niece Heidi has gotten me hooked on the Secret Life of the American Teenager on ABCFamily on Tuesday nights and the main storyline is about teen pregnancy. Maybe I'm weird. Maybe little Lucy is filling a hole...after all I do call her Baby. Maybe it's because I'm in Young Women's and the thought of any of the girls having to go through either scenario in the song breaks my heart. Maybe it's because I could have written the song myself.....

Lucy Belle is still no bigger than a minute but she is getting bigger every day. Either that or my scales are way off. At the vet on Monday she weighed 2lbs 3oz. She did pretty good didn't seem to mind the shots too much unless you touched her where she got them. She is now 8 weeks old.We've got our own little rhythum going and a pretty good routine.
This is a photo of her with her friend Patches from next door. Patches is a little ShitzTzu and he is 18 months old. Lucy has him completely wrapped around her toes and they play together every couple of days.

Olympic Gold

All this past week Lucy and I have been watching the Olympics for a bit every night. Overall it's been really good but there have been some glitches.
I've decided I don't like the new way of judging the Gymnastics. I have fallen in like with Alian Bernard rather than Michael Phelps ( he is just plain cuter) I think the whole world Cheered when Phelps won the 8th Gold Medal he really deserved them so many World Records were being broken I lost count.
I found this on YouTube while I was looking for something else and thought I'd share. It really showcases Beijing and the Chineese culture.

LucyBelle has more friends than me! Today I was talking on the phone to Little Sis when the bell rang and there were 4 kids on my front porch wanting to know if Lucy could come out and play with them!
They came by last week and she had fun chasing them around the yard so they thought they should do it again. She must have gotten really worn out in the 10-15 minutes they were out there because she has literally done nothing but sleep since. Though she did perk up when the Olympic music came on a bit ago. I've been watching it every night for a bit and even neglected Ice Road Truckers last night to watch the Ladies Gymnastics and the Men's 4x100 relay Swimming and the USA got Gold!! Woo Hoo!
Beijing is the site this year and it's so very fun to watch the side stories of all the athletes. The Opening Ceremonies on 8-8-08 were really something. I thought Salt Lake did fab but this was really over the top. I think they said there were something like 10,000 performers and more than 2 million dollars worth of fireworks in the coolest arena that they call the Bird's Nest.

Little Did I Know...

I am now in complete sympathy with Baby Sis. Babies are HARD work!!!
Lucy Belle is no bigger than a minute but she really keeps me on my toes. I was so proud of her Thursday...not even one accident in the house. She really earned her treat. Yesterday though she was treating the house like it was one big toilet designed just for her. She piddled and poo'ed wherever she darn well pleased and was completely unco-operative. When I took her outside she just wanted to play. She seems to have the go potty then get a treat thing down but can't quite make the connection that she only gets a treat if she potties outside.
The joys of motherhood.....
She is so funny to watch and has a little hop skippy style of moving around outside. It's like she doesn't really like her belly touching the grass and is trying to avoid it. I still haven't found a collar or harness small enough to fit her but she is still a baby. So i'm hoping she will just grow into the little ones I got.

Here she is everyone my new roommate. Meet Lucy LuluBelle. Lucy is a Yorkshire Terrier so she won't get too big. Her Mama's name is Tinkerbelle and she is back to a very svelt 8 lbs. just weeks after giving birth to 6 puppies.

Lucy is very cute and loves to cuddle. She is only a few weeks old and weighs in a barely over a pound, in fact she only weighs 20 ounces. She seems to have a real foot fetish and likes to lick my toes. I think she is trying to lick the polish off. It will be a little while before she gets her ponytail topknot and beard but she should be really pretty in just a few months.

Unlike Chloe this little roomie talks back!! LOL She was pretty vocal the first night but settled down last night and slept in her kennel til 5:30am. Tonite I'm hoping for a bit longer because we went down to Blane's and she was able to play alot with Parky and Berg. They got along pretty well they even let her know she is last in the pecking orderwhich goes Blane Parky Berg and then Lucy. We will have to see what she does when they come to HER house. LOL
