sylvie is a strange little creature. sometimes weeks will pass without any changes. then, suddenly, she will do 3 new things in a single day. today sylvie clapped, crawled forward, and hugged me for the first time. ALL IN ONE DAY. what will she accomplish tomorrow?
this video has nothing to do with any of these firsts, but it is unbelievably adorable.
sylvie is in love with our dog, auggie. she laughs and giggles anytime he walks into the room. he is a seriously goofy dog in both appearance and demeanor. just look at this face.
travis and i have talked many times about the possibility of finding auggie a new home. we have tried several different training methods with him, in addition to having him professionally trained, to no avail. he barks at anything that moves...or doesn't move...hell, he just barks at everything. he is incredibly neurotic and has a tendency to defy us by peeing on things, such as sylvie's toys or my father-in-law. his one saving grace is his personality. he is sweet, loving, and wonderful with sylvie. he has never snapped at her despite hours of ear and tail pulling. he watches over her and licks her face lovingly. it is clear that she loves him right back. it looks like we're stuck with him. :)
