Where does time go?

Two years ago yesterday we brought Bailey home! She was just a tiny little thing. It was a long process to get her, I had been looking at puppies forever, and for some reason, that week I really got the bug. I probably sent Adam at least, 100 pictures of puppies up for adoption in the area, until FINALLY I sent him her. His response? " You finally sent me one I couldn't resist, go ahead and fill out the application!"

Delaware puppy rescue was the place we got her, so we were required to fill out an application, and do the whole process, I was terrified because they said they wouldn't adopt out to anyone under the age of 25, we were 22 at the time. But my compelling argument that we were not your " typical" 22 year olds must have worked. They wanted us to come out and see if we were a good fit for " Ayme" That was her name then. That night we drove to Delaware ( not far from Philly) to take a look. I held her, then passed her off to Adam, who well she licked ( the sign of things to come) love at first sight if you will. So we wrote the check, then off we went to Petsmart for some baby essentials. She made it all the way to the parking lot in Philly before peeing on me! haha, that should have been my sign. Then it was off to meet her brother and sister, Louie and siren.

Louie " Loved" her...
Siren loved her bed, not really a big fan of Bailey herself!

Bailey and I have a different relationship then Adam and her do. Most of ours involves sleeping.:)( please excuse me in these pictures)

Adam's relationship with Bailey is well... a little disturbing. She licks him. ALL. THE. TIME. We once tried to time her to see if she would stop on her own, she didn't. She swabbed his face for 5 minuets before we made her stop. ( Sorry for sharing that honey) But he loves her, and I watch him with her, and I can't EVEN imagine how fantastic he is going to be with our son. I don't have all the pictures on this computer that I wanted to put up of him with her, but here are a few, goodies! ( Again, ignore Adam in these, it was his morning wake up call)

Notice where the rest of her body is in these pictures.

Where did my once tiny little baby go? The sweet thing we brought home?

She turned into... well a dog, who barks, is afraid of everything, doesn't eat very much, really skinny,has weird ears,sleeps under the covers and is afraid of the grass!!! I tell her everyday she is lucky Adam and I adopted her, because if we didn't, she might have been taken back!
