This was our first trip to the cabin this year and it was Jib's first time in the water. He did really great, especially with the water being so cold. The meadow up at our cabin had flooded from all the water this spring, so it gave us some good marsh to practice water retrieves in.

I know his birthday was a couple months ago, but better late than never. We had a lot of fun swimming at Papa and Nana's house for his birthday. Beckam LOVES swimming!! And luckily we had JUST finished unwrapping his presents when the rain came rolling in and we cleared out. That's the way to clear out a party fast, but it was just in time. Thanks everyone who came to celebrate with us!!

Well, we thought we were doing good and had broken our streak of ER visits. I have saved all of his hospital bracelets and so far we have a 15 mo, 18 mo, 21 mo, and now a 2 yr. And to top it all off, we are in between insurances right now. Our new insurance starts up in 2 days, isn't that how life always happens? My little B-Man is pretty crazy to say the least. He's just a little too brave for his own abilities. This time he jumped off the couch after asking if he could and Ryan saying no, of course he did it anyway and somehow managed to slam right into the corner of the coffee table. (PS coffee table is leaving our house this week to be replaced with a soft, cushiony ottoman) We knew immediately that he needed stitches, there was a good-size hole in his forehead and you could see the layers of skin and muscle into what looked like his skull (just the membrane around the skull). He didn't even cry either, he was pretty chill through the whole process until we had to hold him down for the stitches. He does not like to be restrained. Anyway, they did a few inner sutures since it was so deep and then 5 stitches on the outside. And besides a new scar added to his forehead he will be just fine. So far we have tallied a glued forehead, stitches to his ear, and concussion with a CT Scan, and now stitches to his forehead. Please send good vibes our way so we do not have to visit that dang ER room again for a looong time!!!

Meet Jib, the newest addition to our family. We picked Jib up a few weeks ago at 6 weeks old, and he's almost 8 weeks old now. He has grown so much is just a few weeks, but I guess that is to be expected for a lab puppy. He's been a great puppy so far. Of course, he keeps us at night and has had a few accidents, but overall I've been really impressed. He seems a lot more easy going than when Audi, our rat terrier, was a puppy. This is what Ryan has been waiting years for, his own hunting dog. We got him from a really good hunting pedigree line so we have high hopes for this little guy. But either way, you just can't deny an adorable puppy!
