baby nap time

We have a new ritual at the Horsley house.
We regularly hold nap time for all babies.

it's really quite simple......

First-you have to hold your baby close
and rock it to sleep

next you pat the babies back and sing a little goes
to the tune of the ABC's but it is more like A-b-b-b-b-b-b
(she get's a little carried away with the letter b)

next you place the baby on the pillow and hold it down while
saying shhh shhh shhh shhh shhh

if your babies are really fussy you can lay down with them

and finally, everyone is asleep and happy!

that is until a baby rolls off the pillow and get's a stern talking
to about staying on your pillow!!
so funny the things she is picking up! her mothering skills are
already kicking in!!!

Meet lola....

a couple of weeks ago this little mutt
wandered up to our office during lunch.

She was matted and hungry. Her dew
claws had grown around and found
themselves burried into her paw. I
took one look at her and my heart sank.
She looked so much like my Shi-tzu gizmo
and she just needed a loving home. I took
her home and she did great with Lilly and Gizmo.
I took her to the vet and her health checked
out. Dr Brown said she was about 1.5 years old,
and a Shitzu pekengese mix.
She had no collar and no one seemed to be
looking for her. That's when we realized she
was here to stay. After a trip to the groomer
i give you the new and improved Lola...

She is so happy and is blending great with our crew.
She even passed the 1 year old rolling on you test.

She makes a great addition to our family and she has made
herself quite comfortable on the couch. She went from
homeless to living the good life!
