Today we celebrate the two year anniversary of officially/legally adopting Kayliana into our family! I’ll never forget what the judge said. As we stood there before the bench, he looked us over and said, “I can tell that she’ll bless you as much as you’ll bless her.” So true.
Last week, we went through an adoption process of a slightly (OK, VERY) different nature…from our local Humane Society, I brought home our first family pet since Mistletoe – our Christmas kitty who had to be put down the day AFTER Christmas, 2006. Little 3 month old Lop bunny rabbit – “Scout” – is the perfect little fluff ball for us! I’ll openly admit that I’ve been dealing with some doggie desires for a while now. Mike is SOooo not ready and really, especially with my ZERO dog-ownership experience, it would be better for us to wait until – obviously – he’s 100% pumped AND if our animal-loving, kind of injury-prone wild-child, Kayli, is a tad bit older. So for now all our pet-loving-caring energy can go to this adorable little fluffer-nutter bunny. Currently, he lives in the cage we got for him and we let him out several times a day to hop around the kitchen (blocked off so he can’t escape to the rest of the non-bunny-proofed house). We’re working on litterbox training though so far he seems to prefer his litterbox for sleeping in and the rest of his cage for pooping in. Oye. We’ll get there; it may just take time and lots of poop-practice!
