Baby Gibbs

I haven't even mentioned Baby Gibbs, our new puppy on the blog. He adorable and has really become a part of the family. At first he was exhausting, like a baby. You couldn't leave him alone at all, he was not potty trained and was a chewer. He loves to eat the trim on corners, awesome. He is now 6 months old and still very active but calming down. Now, we will sit on our laps and cuddle. For the first few months we would attack us and try to bite our faces, a huge change from Cooper.
Speaking of Cooper, they are getting along today, sometimes Cooper is just not in the mood to play and wants to be left alone. They really go in stages, but Gibbs is obsessed with Cooper. They have to go potty separately, if not, Gibbs just watches everything Cooper does, he has even been so interested he has walked into Coopers pee stream. Gross, I know.
So, here are some pics of our adorable new addition. He is good practice for a real baby!!

House painting

Here are some of our new paint colors. Kind of hard to see some of them, we did the brown in the downstairs and up the stairs. The yellow is the master bedroom and the light blue is the master bathroom. The kitchen is also blue and the dining room is bright green. The office is also green and the upstairs gameroom is red. The three bedrooms upstairs are also painted, the second master is blue and the two back bedrooms are orange. It took the painters all day, they weren't licensed or bonded but we had no accidents. On a side note, I was working the three days leading up to the painting so we had to buy the paint at night, we showed up to Home Depot at 9pm and had them mix 25 gallons of paint for us. As we left the guy working the paint said he never wanted to see us again. Turns out, we needed more yellow so Carl had to go on Saturday and he was working!!! He was relieved we only needed one more gallon.
