Ashley from Words About Waverly
First, the biggest congratulations to Sara on the birth of her sweet baby girl!! I know that she is going to rock it as a mom of two & that Mac is going to be the best big brother. I have loved following along with her sweet family, now her pregnancy, & I really am looking forward to reading about their future as a family of four!
I feel honored to be a part of this series, I love the idea behind it & like Sara, am a strong believer that kids benefit from growing up with pets. I come from a family with four kids & we always had pets growing up, my parents still have a house full of dogs now! With that being said, I was totally nervous about how our dog (an 7-year old yellow lab named Bogger) would react to a new baby throughout my pregnancy. I'm not sure if I can go ahead & blame it on the hormones, but it was one of the (many) fears I had about bringing home our new baby girl.
Fast forward a couple years, Waverly Maye is now two-years old & it's safe to say that Bogger is her BFF. :) "Gogger" was one of Waverly's first words & she repeats it non-stop pretty much everyday. Each morning, one of the first names she asks for is "gogger", she loves to climb into bed with us & snuggle with him. She always gives him kisses, lets him wear her jewelry, & thinks that it is hilarious when he runs around the house.
And most of all, she loves to feed him, which is how she won his heart. :) My husband & I couldn't help but laugh the other day when we saw pictures of Bogger from a few years ago, he really is about 15 pounds heavier now! It's crazy how much she is willing to share with him, both what she wants to eat & what she doesn't. They really make the cutest team, & we love them both so!
Thanks again to Sara for having us, we are so very excited to be a part of this! We can't wait to start reading the rest of the posts, there really is nothing cuter than babies & kids, right?! AND of course, to see pictures of Sara's sweet little baby girl. :)
