sibling love.

as sweet and adorable as this is, it in no way depicts the relationship between them.

but these do..

spring has finally sprung.

thank goodness, it has finally arrived!

first and foremost, we have left behind the 40's and 50's as highs. and i'm sure lovin' 60's and 70's! top it off with some sunshine, and it's a perfect day.

spring, here's what i love about you.

i love seeing tulips galore; they remind me of bloomington.
i love sitting in the [now green] grass and playing with my puppies.
i love that i can now go for runs outdoors.
i love that colby loves working hard in our yard to make it look nice.
i love all of the flowering trees, especially our crabapple we planted last fall.
i love that we have our first royals game of the season to look forward to next weekend.
i love driving with my windows down and music up.
i love leaving the house without a coat.
i love eating breakfast and dinners on the back porch with my husband.
i love opening the windows in our home and smelling the fresh air.

meet Kirkwood.

thursday night we brought home our new puppy, Kirkwood.

they called it their valentine's litter, but they were actually born on feb 15th - the day after valentine's day. colby & i wanted to come up with something we could relate to IU for a name. since our first date was on kirkwood ave in bloomington on valentine's day, we found this to be a fitting, and cute boy name.

colby and i both have had a couple of sleepless nights, but you tend to get over that sort of thing when he's just so dang cute.

macy isn't sure what to think of her new brother. depending on the moment, she's either ecstatic to have another puppy around to rough house with.. OR, she's irritated that this new little guy came marching in and stole all of her toys and one-on-one attention.

here's a video of kirkwood working really hard to climb the scary stairs, while macy either a) is trying to play with her new brother, or b) trying to push him to his death. ;) i'll let you be the judge..
