We're still here!

Don't worry! 
We are still alive and well
(and a bit bigger than usual,
thanks to all those treats).

Mom is still getting used to the
"working mom" thing and our
dear big brudder Jerome
asks for attention the minute 
he gets home.
See, he wants to play with
mom's new toy, her iPad.
She took these pictures with it.

You'll get more news next week.
By then, we'll have received our
picture with Santa and
hopefully, the Christmas
tree will be up.

Have a great week and, if you are in Canada,
drive carefully on those icy roads.

It's time to go out, get clean... and walk!

Before the chilly winds of autumn,
our family took time to go out a little.
Here they are, at  the Parc
des Iles-de-Boucherville, a provincial
park close to home.
Our big brudder was brave during
the whole shaky hour!

 Here he is again, ready to visit his cousins.
"Jerome, you have the same look when you're
about to play flute really loudly close to 
our sensitive ears!"
 As for us, we recently got groomed.
We stayed that clean for about 1 hour!
Good news! We are now getting
walked every workday morning!
Mom is out and about with us for about
25 minutes, before showering
and preparing Jerome for daycare.
In the evening, it's dad's turn.
We love this new routine!

When are the next Olympic games again?

Look! A park!

Look at what we see from
our living room window :
a park!
Yes, we now live in front of
a large, green space,
with nothing on it except
trees and 2 big rocks.

 And there's more:
there is a second, smaller park, close to home.
Now, mom, can you just please
do as you say and wake up
extra early to walk us in the morning?
Thanks! :-)

Our new life

As you can see, our brudder is adjusting
very well to our new house
(ugly flooring included!).
He's happy all the time,
loving daycare more and more and,
apart from needing to get bigger,
his health is much much better.
It's super cool, right?

 Dad found a new job last week, for a big
company in Montreal.
So far, so good!
We are not exactly happy about this,
but we do get a lot of attention in the evening...
Everyday, mom rushes from her workplace
 closer to home and with
shorter hours, 
picks up our brudder and
hurries to get us out.
Fino, who never got the top grades
in housetraining, finds this challenging.
I'm doing great!
 Luckily, we have our backyard!
And we are not the only ones who love it!
No, we're not going up there!
Do not mistake us for cats!

The backyard

Here are parts of our backyard.
Let us tell you, the grass is delicious!

Our new house

We love our new house!
It is bigger than the first one...
and we finally have an outdoor playground
with lots of big trees!
We'll show you in a few minutes...

Jerome is really happy about all of this,
despite what the photos show.
He is the one who insisted on wearing
his winter, one-size, now-too-small
pajama during the hottest afternoon
last week-end!

Getting settled has proven to take much 
for time than expected.
That's why you haven't seen us in a while.
Mom will get back to commenting on your blogs soon...

She's now back at work and Jerome is
getting used to daycare.
No more crying in the morning: yeah!
We were worried about being alone all day, 
it's not the case, for now.
A few weeks ago, daddy lost his job
(the Montreal branch of his company
suddenly closed).
He's working hard to find a new one.

See you in a minute!
Now, where's that camera again...

Bye bye townhouse, hello bungalow!

Who is this moody little guy?
Our brudder Jerome, of course!
As always, he wants to play with the camera
instead of being photographed...

Jerome started daycare last week.
He's a big boy now!
He still would prefer to stay home with Fino and I,
but he has so many new things to learn.
Jerome also started speech therapy
and he's making progress every day.
Where does that leave us?
Well, I guess we'll have to entertain ourselves during the day...
and mom or dad will have to wake up extra early
to walk us a bit in the morning.
The good news is: we'll soon have a lot more room to play!
We'll be moving at the end of the month
to our very first bungalow!
We can't wait!
No wonder our parents are so tired these days, with
all these changes.

Happy Easter everybody!
Remember:: chocolate bunnies are for humans only!

Jerome turned 3

We had a fun run in the park this week-end.
Look, there is ice everywhere!
Surprisingly, the weather is a bit warmer now,
so there are lots of fun stuff to sniff!
"Dad and Jerome, look down before
you take another step!"

Speaking of Jerome, he is turning 3 this week.
He is a big boy now and
he wants to do things
by himself,
including walking us.
He's not yet ready!
Yesterday, we invited mom's family
for a big birthday lunch.
As always, our big brudder
was spoiled!
Earlier this week, Sophie's mom
also made a visit and brought
educational games.
This month's challenge:
learning the colors.
Start by the most beautiful ones,
Jerome: chestnut and white, of course!

Relaxing options

Up until recently, when mom was working on the computer
(or catching up on her friends's whereabouts
on Facebook), Fino and I did not know
what to do.
Usually, this happened when
Jerome was taking a nap
(which is rarer these days)
and I must admit that
stealing his toy cars
when he is not around is not that much fun...

Why not relax a little, then?
To help us with that,
mom bought us two great day beds
just before Christmas...
We love them a lot!

Fino sometimes chews on the pillow,
but he has not done serious damage yet...
Now that Jerome's health is much better,
we are enjoying seeing much more of him.
We know that he is growing fast!
He is now going to daycare 2 mornings/week
to help him gain more independence
before going full-time.
You can do it, big brudder!
We'll sure miss you during the day!

A hot award for a freezing time

The trees, the yard, the cars:
all is white outside!
It's also freezing cold...

To warm our hearts, our dear friends
Momo and Pinot
did this amazing thing:
they gave us the Liebster Award,
created to help small blogs get
more recognition.
Thanks so much!

It's now our time to give back!

We'd like to share this special award with some of our friends
(their blogs must have 200 readers or less, sorry Remington!):

Kodee and Becky
Kosmo and Faith (we love you and we'd like to read newer posts!)

The links to their fabulous blogs are on the left column.
Merci Momo and Pinot!
We LOVE your blog!

Since we are not big fans of the cold, we are spending
long hours snoozing inside, while Mom and Jerome
are being busy visiting day care centers.
They may have found the right one!
We will keep you posted on this later this week.

Also, our big brudder had a very special day yesterday.
After being postponed many times last year,
his christening finally took place.
Pictures coming soon!
Sleep tight!

We love the Holidays!

Fino and I had a great Holiday week and we hope
it was the same for you!
Our aunt Marie (dad's sister) surprised the family
by inviting us to spend the day at her house
on Christmas Day, so we wouldn't be left alone in our crates.
We had a fantastic time and we behaved really well
(Marie wisely took time to hide all her kids' small toys
before our arrival).
We were so happy when we were finally
all together for dinner!
Jerome was spoiled with lots of toys,
including a train table that mom and dad gave him.
He played with it for hours on Boxing Day!
We were not forgotten!
Mom bought us pretty new day beds and many boxes
of healthy treats. She also received two
beautiful cavalier Christmas ornaments
that she'll cherish forever!
Our favorite gifts were the two soft Nylabones
that mom gave us for the New Year,
after subjecting us to a full
shampoo-conditioner-brushing routine.
We have been chewing on them non-stop since then!
Happy New Year!
