First the other day, wait no not day, night, middle of the night, I got Croix up to feed him. Propped up my pillows. Put the boppy in place and sat there in a state between sleep and consciousness. Croix was just nuzzling and nuzzling and making frustrated noises. I thought Ugh what's the deal why doesn't he just eat already. Look down, I hadn't even undone my bra! No wonder he wasn't eating!!!
Second I woke up to Croix fussing. I'm laying in bed trying to fully wake myself up, and feel Croix next to me. I'm feeling for his face......all I feel is blanket!!! My heart starts pounding as I'm thinking I've smothered my baby. I wake up enough to open my eyes and realize all I was feeling was my body pillow. Croix was safely in his bassinet, still fussing!
Third a few days after we were home from the hospital, while I was still instructed by Brent not to get out of bed unless it was to go to the bathroom Croix woke up. So I rub Brent's back and say can you go get Croix. He just made sleepy noises. The he gently rubs my side and I think oh he's being sweet. Then his hand heads south and he's trying to pull down my pants! I move his hand and ask him what he's doing. He just mumbles. Then he's trying to pull down my pants again. I ask Brent what are you doing? Just trying to...mumbling. Still trying to get my pants down. I take his hand and say Brent you need to wake up. He replies I am awake. I ask well then what are you doing? He says Trying to get ready for him. I say Brent you're trying to get in my bottoms. He says what's the difference. I'm laughing at this point, he's so out of it and has no clue what he's saying or doing. But he's still trying to pull my pants down so I take his hand and say Brent you need to wake up and get your son so I can feed him. No response just trying to get his hand free. So a little louder and more sternly I say Brent you need to wake up and get your son so I can feed him all the while holding his hand a little more firmly. Well he then sits up and gets out of bed and says Fine maybe you need to go to sleep! I really wish I could tell you this story because the tone of voice he used is the best part. He sounded like an indignant teenager! Fine! But maybe you need to go to sleep! I was busting up! I asked him about it the next morning figuring he wouldn' remember anything. He did vaguely remember, he says all he really remembered was that he just thought he needed to help me get ready to feed Croix! Too funny!!!
Just because he's too cute here's a few pictures that I took the other day of the cause of the sleep deprivation.

Bosco and Rusty meeting Croix
Now on to funny stories! Rusty is a funny dog! He found the mirrors on the wall in the bookshelf. He thinks there is another dog there! He keeps growling and barking at this new dog. He also is protecting his teddy bear! It's hilarious! We've been dying laughing at him! He also had quite the incident the other night. I was down stairs Brent was upstairs when all the sudden I hear Rusty yelping and making a fuss. I figured he must have gotten into the trash and got a thump on the nose. But then he kept on yelping and crying and I thought what's going on up there! I come upstairs and Brent is on the floor next to Rusty while the poor dog sounds like he's dying! I ask Brent what's the matter and he doesn't know! He said Rusty was just laying on the floor sleeping and then woke up sounding like he was dying. He had his front paw completely contracted up next to his body and it couldn't move. We thought maybe his leg fell asleep, so we tried rubbing it. That didn't help, we tried to straighten it out and couldn't. His paw would twitch but he leg couldn't straighten. I get the phone and call the animal hospital since it was sat eve. and the vet was closed. While I'm calling Croix starts crying down stairs so I go get him. Explain to the animal hospital what's going on. They say we should bring him in, it sounds kind of serious and not normal. She mentions ACL and I'm thinking crap. ACL problems are expensive! Just as I get off the phone Brent hollers I figured it out bring some scissors?!?!?!?! What the heck could he need scissors for? I hurry upstairs and he says He has his paw stuck in his collar! You've got to be kidding right? Nope this silly dog some how got his dew claw, which is the back one, stuck in the latch of his collar. Now being the frugal person that I am stop Brent from cutting the collar off of Rusty, I'm thinking we've just spent hundreds of dollars on baby stuff we don't need to spend another ten bucks on a new collar. But Rusty was nipping at Brent when he'd try and unhook the collar because it hurt. So I in my post delivery crippled state finally make it to the ground so I can hold Rusty's head down while Brent unlatched the collar. Instantly Rusty was fine. He stood up, shook it off and was instantly his happy go lucky self again! All of that fuss over a stuck paw! You seriously would have thought he was dying! He's so dramatic and overly vocal! Silly dog. Well that is all the dog stories for now! Hope you feel satisfied and informed as to the state of our dogs!
